The aim of this study was to investigate the relation between parents’ capital (cultural, social, or financial) and tendency to gender discrimination. Gender discrimination and types of capital are very important key concepts in sociology. Among contemporary thinkers Bourdieu has very interested in this issue; he believes that capital allows a person to supervise his fate and others. Parents have a significant impact on their children, so their capital could be examined as one of the variables influencing parent’s attitudes toward gender discrimination. Besides Pierre Bourdieu’s theory, feminist theories have been used in this study as Theoretical framework. The data was collected by questionnaire from 385 parents who lived in Javanrood city in 2011. The result of the study was indicated that relation between parents’ capital and their tendency to gender discrimination was significant. The analytical result was demonstrated that total capital (cultural, social, and financial) explain the 24.2 variance of independent variables. The results indicate that the cultural capital plays more important role than the other variables.
