Crossing Professional Boundaries: Human Issues.
Griffin, Mary D.
Although women's roles in America had previously been confined to home and family, women in the 1960's began to look for professional fulfillment outside the home. A recent survey of 300 midlife Boston women reveals that women who are married, have children, and are in prestigious positions have the greatest sense of well-being. The women's movement has given rise to a reexamination of sex roles, with the result that men too are beginning to question stereotypical definitions of male and female behavior. Women's studies centers such as those at Harvard's Bunting Institute, which have become increasingly common, signal a new and promising emphasis on the development of women's potentials. Such an emphasis should continue to be developed for the sake of both sexes. (JBM)
