Today's Feminist: Her Place Is in the Home.
Luetgert, M. J.; And Others
It has been theorized that feminist movements have failed because they focused on legal and political reforms and ignored the influence of domestic roles. Five hundred thirty persons completed a 125-item questionnaire which generated "desire for change" scores on two scales: (1) sex roles "in the home" and (2) sex roles "out of the home." A significant desire for change was found both "in the home" and "out of the home" in nearly all demographic categories. However, desire for change "out of the home" significantly exceeded desire for change "in the home" in almost all groups. It is concluded that the current feminist movement can be given a prognosis of guarded optimism in terms of theoretical predictions. (Author)
