Introduction: The purpose of this study was to predict self-efficacy based on resiliency, perceived gender discrimination and gender role schemas of women. Self-efficacy is a person's confidence in his ability to cope with difficult situations.
Method:The present study in term of purpose and data collection is a correlation study. For this purpose, 124 female teachers from Kahrizak city were selected by cluster sampling. Participants responded to general self-efficacy, self-resiliency, gender discrimination events and gender role questionnaires. For data analysis, Pearson correlation coefficient and step-by-step multiple regression were used.
Results:The results showed that the resiliency, gender schemas and self-efficacy have a positive and significant relationship, and the gender discrimination events has a negative and significant relationship with self-efficacy. Resiliency, gender discrimination events throughout life, and male gender role schemas could predict 31% of self-efficacy variance.
Conclusion:The present study indicates the importance of resiliency, perceived gender discrimination and gender role schemas in explaining teacher self-efficacy. Therefore, planning further studies to promote the self-efficacy of female teachers is recommended, given their critical role in nurturing students.
