Effects of Women's Studies Courses on Women's Attitudes and Goals.
Canty, Eileen M.
Significant changes in attitudes towards women, their vocational and educational roles, and marital relationships were found in two groups of women's college students after exposure to women's studies courses in adolescent psychology and the psychology of women. Both experimental groups indicated more liberal plans for combining marriage and careers. They wrote of earlier resumption of careers after childbirth and greater willingness to share child rearing. In addition, the psychology of women students displayed a willingness to delay marriage. Similar changes were not found in a control group. (Author)
