A Review of Literature Concerning Behaviors Which Inhibit or Reduce Sex Bias and Sex-Role Stereotyping.
Beach, Audni Miller
A review of the literature was conducted to identify behaviors of vocational educators which in some manner inhibited or reduced sex bias and sex-role stereotyping in vocational education. Of the 57 references selected from five data bases, 45 were descriptive of the problems of sex bias and sex-role stereotyping; 12 provided information regarding behaviors actually implemented to reduce sex bias and sex-role stereotyping. (The 45 references are attached to the report for information purposes; the 12 references are cited in the report and are included in the annotated bibliography.) From the literature review, several projects were also found which dealt with sex bias and sex stereotyping and which could be grouped according to similar activities--those conducted in recruitment and enrollment of female students in nontraditional programs, and those conducted in staff development. It was concluded that of particular significance is that the behaviors of vocational educators which inhibit sex bias and sex-role stereotyping occurred in organizational efforts. No descriptions were found which indicated that vocational educators acted through their own initiative to reduce sex bias and sex-role stereotyping in individual settings. The implication was that the majority of vocational educators remain unaware of the problem of sex bias and sex-role stereotyping. (Although the identification of behaviors of vocational educators which reduce sex bias was the primary focus of this report, efforts made by other educators toward nonsexist education are also identified.)
