Education and Employment. A Handbook to Promote Sex Equity.
This handbook is intended to help instructors and administrators increase enrollments of females in nontraditional vocational training programs and thereby foster sex equity in society. Information is provided that is designed to address the following objectives: increasing nontraditional enrollment, facilitating positive educational experiences for women, and understanding the unique situation of women choosing nontraditional training. The first section includes a brief history of feminism in the United States, a rationale for increasing nontraditional enrollment and student recruitment efforts, and a self-scored gender communications quotient inventory for teachers and administrators. The next three sections contain quizzes dealing with work and the family, female labor force participation, and women and education along with information disproving many stereotypes. The final section consists of fact sheets covering such topics as recruitment strategies and supportive services needed by women in nontraditional vocational programs. (MN)
