My Daughter Wants to Be a Nurse: Occupational Stereotyping in Health Textbooks.
Holcomb, Carol Ann
Journal of School Health, v51 n5 p336-340 May 1981
An evaluation of the illustrations in elementary and secondary education textbooks reveals that: (1) Males dominate occupations illustrated in contemporary health textbooks; and (2) females are generally portrayed as assistants (nurses, technicians, dental hygienists) to males in higher-level roles or in occupations with low levels of power, prestige, and money.
