These secondary-level resource materials provide a broad study of women's current status and emphasize the specific situation confronting women in the Third World. The materials cover three general areas: (1) facts and figures outlining the broad area of equality of opportunity; (2) reports and case studies about women's participation in the social and economic development of Third World countries; and (3) excerpts and comments concerning problems created by attitudes, norms, and values that frequently reinforce traditional role definitions and inhibit effective change. Questions, statements, and suggestions for classroom activities are organized around these three areas. The materials contain a teacher guide, suggestions for classroom activities, relevant readings, and an annotated list of additional related resources. Hard copy, available through UNICEF, contains an additional International Women's Year poster, International Women's Year wallsheet, 1975-76 UNICEF publication catalog, and a UNICEF brochure.
