Annotation: The situation of the COVID-19 pandemic has raised gender inequality problems around the world, in Russia as well – cases of domestic violence have increased; the burden associated with daily duties, as well as conflicts between partners have grown. The question how close partners cope with stress together as a dyad has become topical. Another point of interest includes gender attitudes’ impact. The aim is to identify the role of gender attitudes in partners` dyadic coping with stress. Hypothesis is that gender attitudes impact partners` choice of dyadic coping strategies. The sample consists of volunteers in close relationships. The most important results presented include: people with pronounced gender inequality attitudes are not inclined to use dyadic coping when a stressful situation arises in the couple. Gender attitudes impact dyadic coping strategies choice: positively for those who “launch” negative coping; negatively, for supporting coping. Dominance and inequality, defined by traditional gender roles, hinder effective sharing of dyadic tasks with the partner when coping with stress.
Keywords: gender attitudes, dyad, stress, dyadic coping.
