Applying Quantification Method III(Correspondence analysis) to the results of our survey we found a pattern of thinking as regards the consciousness of women’s independence. The majority of the samples (female university graduates) consider “women’s independence” from three points of view: financial independence, psychological strength and family role. It is said that financial independence is a very important aspect for wornen’s independence, but more than half of the samples value psychological independence rather than financial independence, even if they consider that, concerning men’s independence, both financial power and psychological strength are necessary conditions for it.
