Becker-Cantarino, including comments on the possibilities of identifying, understanding, and erasing sex stereotypes, and recommendations for influencing the production of nonsexist films and a bibliography; (3) what textbook authors can do to improve the stereotype of women--a discussion of problem areas and a presentation of critical guidelines by W. A. von Schmidt; (4) a discussion from a publisher's perspective of publishers' responsibility to avoid stereotyping problems they must face and guidelines they are to follow, by C.
