Abstract
This study revealed findings on the ways in which gender moderates the relationship between selfacceptance and autonomy. Data for this study was collected from 1181 university students of different faculties (584 of them were males and the rest were females, in the age range between 18-50). Performing SPSS version 18, descriptive statistics, independent T-Test , correlation, and multiple regression analysis were used to analyses the data. Findings revealed that male students scored significantly higher than female students on self acceptance but not in autonomy. Furthermore, findings indicated that the correlation between autonomy and self acceptance is high with a large effect size for all and by gender. Moreover, it was revealed that the autonomy factor explained about 15%, 13 %, and 16 % of the variance in self acceptance for all, for men, and women, respectively. In addition, it was found that gender did not significantly mediate the influence of autonomy on self acceptance.
