Female Self-Image in Relation to Patriarchal Religious Institutions: A Study of Socio-Religious Attitudes among Female Teacher-Education Students.
Radich, Carol Ann
Based on the premises that one's self-concept is the major motivator of human behavior, and that religious beliefs influence self-perceptions, this paper explores various relationships between socio-religious attitudes and their impact on female self-image. A group of 61 female teacher education students responded to a questionnaire assessing their agreement or disagreement with patriarchal religious concepts. The high degree of agreement with statements reflecting patriarchal views of women and traditional sex roles suggests serious concern that women educators may continue to foster sexist attitudes toward women into the next century.
