Sexism and the Education of the Young Child.
Rausher, Shirley R.
This speech evaluates some of the effects of sex-role stereotyping on both men and women. The results of a number of recent research studies are presented to chart some societal changes already evident in relation to sexism. In this context of change, the author deals with the nature of educational programming for young children which will counter sexism. The training of teachers of young children is discussed in regard to survey data on prospective teachers' self-evaluation and expression of attitudes on sex-role stereotyping. The implications of sexism, and the means used to challenge sexism, are discussed. (Author)
