Understanding Sex Roles and Moving Beyond. A Learning/Teaching Guide.
Allman, Joanna; And Others
This guide is one of a four-book series on female development designed to provide a model for a sex-fair graduate training program in counseling, educational psychology and career education. It concentrates on sex roles in American society, examining the variables which contribute to sex-role stereotyping, and developing strategies for moving toward androgyny. The book consists of three units dealing with: (1) sex-role stereotypes in America; (2) sex roles across cultures; and (3) sex roles in American institutions. Units are divided into several lessons each containing a rationale, learning objectives, facilitator instructions, and suggested references. The appendix contains an annotated bibliography of additional media resources. (Author/NRB)
