Two Person Careers and Two Career Persons: Towards Increased Options for All.
Appley, Dee G.
This presentation suggests that creating more options for all individuals is a way to move away from alienation toward liberation, and attempts to clarify this change process by looking at some of the forces which stand in the way of increasing options. It deals largely with the issue of limitations imposed on individuals by virtue of their sexuality. The author maintains that rather than recognizing the duality of human existence wherein both sexes have what are called masculine and feminine impulses, we have forced each sex to specialize and cultivate only one set of characteristics and deny the other. This makes for alienation within the individual and polarizes the sexes, making communication between them more difficult. The author concludes that it will require active efforts to effect attitude changes that lead to cooperation between women and men, and among people, to overcome the barriers that have for so long existed.
