Investigating Emerging Attitudes Toward Women.
Eckstein, Dan; Eckstein, Judy
In attempting to assess emerging attitudes toward women, 186 students in five different behavioral and social science college courses were tested at the beginning and end of the semester. Each class devoted varying percentages of the total curriculum to the topic of changing male-female roles. Pre-post differences were examined for the following contrasting variables: college class, age, sex, race, and marital status using Patricia Engelhard's Attitudes Toward Women Survey. Results indicated that the most emergent attitudes were obtained from white, married, female senior-level or graduate school students over the age of 25. The variables of age and marital status produced the most divergent attitudes toward women. The greatest post-test increase was noted in two marriage and family courses--classes in which approximately 20% of the course content directly involved examining male-female attitudes. (Author)
