The Interface of Family and Society in Sex Role Changes, Emphasizing the Saliency of Occupation.
Settles, Barbara H.
This paper develops a theoretical framework for examining how families interact with the society under conditions in which the expectations for sex roles are changing. The difference between mandated and voluntary change is examined and the cost-benefit ratio to families for participating in the process of change is evaluated in different circumstances. Those social processes which support flexible sex roles are identified. The relevance of occupation participation to individual family options underlies the whole analysis. (Author)
