Analysis of the features of demonstration of the gender stereotypes in the metallurgical monotown is presented. Such town is characterized by professional employment in the structure of industrial enterprises with shift systems of operation.

A row of variations in the standards of gender interaction between men and women is revealed, the role of the new “displaced” types of emotional reaction of men and women on surrounding reality.
