Family Change and Gender Differences: Implications for Theory and Practice.
Hare-Mustin, Rachel T.
Family Relations, v37 n1 p36-41 Jan 1988
Examines theories of gender differences. Discusses alpha bias, exaggeration of gender opposition, as characteristic of psychodynamic and sex role theories; and beta bias, denial of gender differences, as evident in systems theories. Calls for new model of gender differences which recognizes asymmetry in women's and men's roles and responsibilities. (Author/NB)
