Sex-Role Contravention and Sex Education Directed toward Young Children in Sweden.
McConaghy, Maureen J.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v41 n4 p893-904 Nov 1979
Sweden's sex-role ideology and policy of counteracting sex-role learning through the schools are described. Correspondence between policy and practice is reported. Parents tended to affirm some non-sex-determined standards, while reinforcing sex-typed behavior more than cross-sex-typed behavior. Most teachers made efforts to counteract sex roles. Sex-education was positively related to sex-role contravention. (Author/BEF)
