The equality policy of Greece includes measures and strategies that will contribute to the reduction of inequalities. Its priorities are referring to change of existing conceptions and attitudes at the same time as to the role of the two genders in family, work, in political and social life. However, despite the strengthening of women's position within the Greek society, many women strongly support that gender in equality continues to persist both in professional life and in everyday life. Thus the aim of this research is the collection and analysis of the Greek male students’ believes and attitudes towards the working skills and capabilities of the opposite sex. The findings of the implicative statistical analysis indicated that the males’ students think that there no need for equal opportunities between the two sexes in domestic, employment, social and political life. They have a very strong arrogant attitude towards females working skills. In addition they believe that the main women priorities must be home and children upbringing.
