Intervention Strategies for Modifying Sex Stereotypes.
Nickerson, Eileen T.
This paper examines ways in which schools are a major agent in the continuing socialization that leads to discrimination against women and sex role stereotyping. The author gives illustrations from teacher behaviors, textbooks, physical education and athletics, and counseling. The paper then reviews some of the consequences of sex discrimination for women relating to jobs and economic opportunities. The final part of the paper deals with intervention strategies available and currently being explored for counteracting the sex stereotypes. The author notes, finally, the need to develop effective strategies for developing long-range, real-life changes in attitudes and behavior to alleviate some of the paralyzing effects of sex stereotypic practices and pressures.
