This study aimed to investigate the relationship between mother and father education levels and vocational statuses with sexism and conservatism. 418 undergraduate students (229 females, 189 males; Mage = 22.31, SS = 3.3) were recruited for the study and completed questions regarding parent statuses as well as Ambivalent Sexism Inventory including hostile -benevolent sexism and General Conservatism Scale. Results showed that parent education levels and statuses were mostly negatively correlated with individuals’ hostile and benevolent sexism and conservatism. Besides, mother and father statuses were correlated with different variables for different genders. Finally, findings were discussed within the framework of literature, limitations were specified, and contributions were revealed.
