Some 36 per cent of Croatian men believe that the most important role of a woman is to take care of the children and cook, while only 20 per cent think that the man should have the last word in the household.
The latter fact makes Croatian men the most liberal out of the male population in six countries surveyed for the† "Evolving Men - Initial Results from the International Men and Gender Equality Survey (IMAGES)"† (Brazil, Mexico, India, Chile, Rwanda and Croatia).
Still, 29 per cent of Croatians think that women should be the ones to change babyís diapers, while an overhwleming 62 per cent believes that they have to be rough to be "real men."
The initial results of the IMAGES survey, however, show that men in all of the countries except for India and Rwanda support the equality between men and women.
The study also showed that men who consider their female counterparts equal are more satisfied, communicate more with their partner and have a better sex life.
The biggest sources of stress for men were income and lack of work, which could lead to depression, thoughts of suicide and domestic violence.
The surveys this year will include Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea in coordination with the UNís programme "Partners for Prevention."
