A Comparison of Mens' and Womens' Consciousness-Raising Groups.
Shorr, Susan I.; Jason, Leonard A.
The nature and function of consciousness-raising (CR) groups for men and women were analyzed. Questionnaires were filled out by 61 individuals representing 10 CR groups. There were no significant differences between sexes in terms of rankings for services rendered by the CR groups, suggesting that consciousness-raising groups for men and women may be more alike than different. Combining sexes, it was found that emotional support was rated significantly higher than socio-political change and behavior change/advice. CR participants appear to be more concerned with the fulfillment of emotional and social needs in their groups and less concerned with behavioral and political change. (Author/PJC)
