THE CHANGING ROLE OF WOMEN AND ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR HOME ECONOMICS EDUCATION.
FISHER, NANETTE HUNT
THIS STUDY, BASED ON THE HYPOTHESIS THAT PREPARATION FOR MARRIAGE IS INADEQUATE IN OUR SOCIETY, INCLUDES A SURVEY OF LITERATURE RELATING TO THE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF MODERN WOMEN AND THE PROPER ROLE OF HOME ECONOMICS EDUCATION, TOGETHER WITH RESULTS OF A SURVEY OF HUNTER COLLEGE HOME ECONOMICS MAJORS AND OTHER WOMEN REGARDING PROBLEMS IN FAMILY LIVING. THE CHANGING ROLE OF WOMEN AND THE ROLE CONFLICTS THAT FREQUENTLY ARISE ARE DISCUSSED WITH REFERENCE TO SUCH FACTORS AS INCREASING EDUCATIONAL PRIVILEGES AND ECONOMIC INDEPENDENCE, GREATER EQUALITY AND COMPETITION BETWEEN THE SEXES, THE STRONG EMPHASIS ON SUCCESS AND MATERIAL ACHIEVEMENT IN OUR SOCIETY, AND INCONSISTENCIES BETWEEN THE CAREER AND MARRIAGE PLANS OF EDUCATED WOMEN. FINDINGS SUGGEST THAT, WHILE SKILLS IN HOUSEKEEPING AND HOME MANAGEMENT ARE VITAL TO EFFECTIVENESS AND SELF FULFILLMENT BOTH IN THE HOME AND IN OUTSIDE EMPLOYMENT, CONCERN WITH THE LESS TANGIBLE AREAS OF FAMILY LIVING INCREASES WITH GREATER EDUCATION. (THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES AN APPENDIX AND 59 REFERENCES.) THIS M.S. THESIS IN EDUCATION IS AVAILABLE FROM HUNTER COLLEGE, 695 PARK AVENUE, NEW YORK, N.Y. 10021. 63 PAGES. (LY)
