Haffa, Robert P., Jr., Ed.
The proceedings delve into facets of the women's movement in America and, particularly the effect of women on the national economy. Highlighted are the speeches to the Assembly of Ms. Betty Friedan, Mrs. Catherine East, Dr. Peggy Kruger, Dr. Jean Lipman-Blumen, and Mrs. Phyllis Schlafly, as well as a final report adopted by the Assembly. The personal, social, and economic factors which have altered the awareness of traditional sex roles and have given impetus to the "sex role revolution" are enumerated and discussed. The impact of the changing sex stereotype upon the family and society is detailed. Pros and cons of the Equal Rights Amendment are presented. (MMCL)
