Shattering Female Sex Role Stereotypes.
Wisconsin Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Other Drug Information, Madison.
This booklet, designed to sensitize people to important issues that are a result of sex role stereotyping, advocates more flexible sex roles which are appropriate to the situation. Traditional and new views of the psychology of sex roles are contrasted, and sex role stereotyping is discussed. Implications of the women's liberation movement for psychotherapy are discussed. The report also reviews drug abuse among women, alcoholism, and sexuality, and discusses the role of sex role conditioning in family violence and the plight of the battered wife. The possibility for change in the male sex role and an annotated reading list conclude the document. (JAC)
