Women as a Second-Class Minority: A Case for Changing Sex-Role Stereotypes.
Nickerson, Eileen T.
Women, with too few exceptions, are hired less often and for less money, get fewer and smaller raises, are promoted on the job less, and are fired more readily than males of comparable ability and experience. In addition, women in the professions (education included) report discriminatory practices in graduate training and while on the job. Counselors, educators, and other helping professions seem to have done little thus far to alleviate this situation. The author discusses intervention strategies for sex stereotyping which are being conducted in the United States. She points to the need for more research in the field and, in particular, to testing out of intervention strategems with greater variety of populations, over longer periods of time, and with stricter and more elaborate controls.
