A Survey of Research Concerns on Women's Issues.
Daniels, Arlene Kaplan
This paper addresses two major issues: (1) how research will affect social policy in areas of life that relate to women; and (2) what research questions can provide the information required to promote positive changes in social policy. It sketches a rough outline of the central questions within each major area, to indicate some of the work that has been done, and to suggest new directions that might be taken. This review of the current state of interest in research on women's issues grew out of a six-month study sponsored by the National Science Foundation. Several major metropolitan areas--Boston, New York, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. -- were visited. Among the major areas explored in this paper are: (1) the need for research/action programs; (2) the women's movement; (3) socialization and the educational system; (4) the world of work; (5) marital status and family; (6) health and life cycle issues; and, (7) other issues of practical concern to women. Also included is an appendix focusing on resources for research on women's issues. (Author/JM)
