Indiana Guide to Sex Equity in Vocational Education.
Ellis, Michael O.
This publication for Indiana vocational education personnel is intended to raise some sex equity issues. In its best use, it provides educators with a bibliography of resources available from the Library Services and Consultation and Field Services units of Vocational Education Services (VES). Section 1 on the problem of equity discusses the reasons for concern, provides facts on U.S. and Indiana working women, and presents an occupational equity quiz. Section 2 focuses on what sex equity is. It contains a list of milestones in the history of sex equity; definitions; brief discussions of nine issues in equity, each followed by a mini-bibliography; child care fact sheets; and "Training the Woman to Know Her Place: The Social Antecedents of Women in the Work World" (Sandra and Daryl Bem). Section 3 on laws and regulations offers summaries of major legislation, federal regulations, and other important legislation. A mini-bibliography follows each summary. Each of these first three sections concludes with a listing of VES resources. Section 4 on sex equity and vocational education outlines ways vocational education personnel can work toward the goal of sex equity. Topics include nontraditional occupations, vocational guidance and counseling, eliminating stereotypes in educational material, and sex equity programs around the nation. A listing of VES resources is provided for each topic. (YLB)
