Today, fatalism isconsidered by social sciences experts as both a type of cultural belief and a socio-cultural barrier. Investigating this concept as viewed by women is of great significance, given the fact that they form half of the body of the society. Accordingly, the present paper aims to investigate the rate of fatalism in women and factors affecting that among the participants of this study. The study is a social survey and the data was collected through conducting questionnaires. The Cranach alpha value confirmed the reliability of the research scales. The research population consisted of women over the age of fifteen in Kashan and Aran&Bidgol in the year 2011. Through Cochran measuring formula, four hundred women were selected as the sample size and were studied by employing Quota method. The values of Pearson correlation coefficient indicate significant relationships between the variables of conventionalism (r=.574), gender-based generalizability (r=.409), lax disciplinary treatment (r=.155), authoritative disciplinary treatment (r=.256), and totalitarian disciplinary treatment (r=.367), and the rate of fatalism among the respondents. The results of regression analyses reveal that the most effective factor in fatalism relates to the variable of conventionalism, rating B= .48. The second most effective factor is gander-based generalizability, and the third stance belongs to authoritative disciplinary treatment, rating B=.084.
