Post, Sylvia; Staunton, Ted, Ed.
One of a series of teaching units designed to introduce secondary school students to the Canadian economy, this handbook contains activities on the economic status and roles of Canadian women. The first of 4 sections presents a profile of male and female occupations. Section 2 contains statistics on females in the Canadian labor force. Section 3, the effect of women on the Canadian economy, examines the relationship between the housewife and the Gross National Product, working women of the past, and future employment trends. Section 4, income differentials, looks at differences in male and female enrollment in specific courses, nontraditional jobs, and equal pay legislation. Each section contains a variety of learning activities, discussion questions, teaching strategies, charts, and readings. (LP)
