Community Survey on the Status of Women. 2nd Edition.
Senderowitz, Judith; Hebert, Brenda
This how-to kit for conducting a survey on the positions women hold in local occupational and decision-making structures is divided into six sections. Section I provides an explanation of the survey and its goals. Section II includes several survey questions and practical tips for finding the answers for each of eleven categories: Law, education, government and politics, health, media, the arts, business and finance, labor, religion, sports, and science and math. A sample question is: What percentage of state trial court judges in your district are women? The tip for finding the answer is: Call the court directly and speak to the clerk of the court. Section III suggests how to organize the survey group and how to collect, compute, and analyze the data. Section IV supplies comparative statistics for the United States in the eleven categories and includes two charts on percentages of women in selected occupations in the United States and in countries around the world. Section V gives tips on successful publicity campaigns, including how to get coverage of a survey's findings in the media, with other groups and agencies, and with political structures. Notes on preparation of a newsworthy press release and on other newspaper coverage are included. Section VI gives lists of organizations and publications under each of the eleven categories which could be resources for follow-up information. (LMS)
