Science, Sex, and Society.
Kammer, Ann E.; And Others
This manual is a compilation of articles about women who pursue careers in science and the multiple sources and forms of discouragement they encounter. It is intended as a guide when developing courses that explore career opportunities and pressures for women in science and a resource in understanding the interaction between science, society, and individuals. Those who would find this manual useful would be postsecondary and secondary faculty and students of science, social science, and mathematics; career counseling personnel; and preservice and inservice teachers. An appendix provides references, career counseling information, and extensive resources for developing an introductory college course to encourage women to enter science fields. (Author/SA)
