The Effects of Instruction on the Sexist Attitudes of Pre-Service Teachers.
Grandinetti, Juliette K.
The effects of short-term consciousness-raising instruction on the sexist attitudes of preservice teachers toward women was examined. To test the ability of teacher education institutions to lessen the level of sexist attitudes, 70 students were divided into three groups, a control group and two treatment groups. Each group was pretested and posttested for societal and educational sexist attitudes. A statistically significant difference in the posttest levels of educational sexist attitudes between the group receiving sensitivity instruction and the treatment groups was found. (Author/JD)
