This teaching guide for sixth grade social studies teachers focuses on the roles of women in European history and the roles women play in more contemporary European, American, African, and Asian societies. Study units provided include: (1) "Daily Life in Ancient Greece"; (2) a unit on the equality of the sexes in ancient Egypt; (3) a unit covering women's contributions to the textile industry and the industrial revolution; (4) a unit covering women's struggles for equal rights; and (5) a unit on Chinese and African working women. Each unit contains background information and exercises for students to complete. The guide may be used alone, or may be used to supplement the male oriented approach taken in "El viejo mundo ayer y hoy" ("The Old World Yesterday and Today"). (GC)
