Matthews, Martha; McCune, Shirley
This workshop session is designed to assist educators responsible for the implementation of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and the attainment of sex equity in postsecondary settings. Topics addressed by these materials include the following: (1) assessing the extent of sexism; (2) the legal context of Title IX; and (3) the social-educational context of Title IX. Workshop participants are encouraged to focus on their own personal awareness of sex discrimination and the extent to which it exists in their educational setting as well as to begin setting goals for nonsexist educational practices. Additionally, a comprehensive, step-by-step outline and participant worksheets are provided as aids for workshop facilitators. (Author/HLM)
