The problems of the upbringing of the woman’s personality affect the deepest foundations of newthinking. In conditions of transition to market relations, consideration of the role of the Kazakh woman inthe family, in society is necessary, because the recognition of women’s rights in Kazakhstan as an integraland indivisible component of universal human rights is still too formal and not rooted in the public consciousness.This expresses the relevance of this article. The purpose of this article is to consider the historyof the socio-cultural development of a Kazakh woman. The scientific significance of the work lies in thefact that the current state of women in Kazakhstan can not be examined without historical aspects of thesocio-cultural development of women.
