Womens' Roles and Education: Changing Traditions in Population Planning.
Vaughn, Gladys Gary, Comp.
This collection of readings on women and education in regard to changing traditions in population/family planning is designed for international home economists, students, and other educators. It presents background information in designing curriculum which integrates family planning and population education concepts into home economics programs. It also provides students with a convenient reference to current developments in theory and research concepts related to family planning, home economics, and population education. Although the nine readings selected represent the general themes of women and education, each reflects a different perspective and draws on many sources for its substance. Part I consists of six articles about the status and role of women in economic life. The articles cover an international perspective on women's rights, family planning, and family size; rights and opportunities of women in education; design of education for females; changing roles of women, family dynamics, and fertility; rural women in Africa; and the woman in Latin America. Part II deals with family planning and population education; and the relationship of family planning to savings and consumption in Taiwan. (Author/ND)
