Potter, Ellen F.; Rosser, Sue V.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v29 n7 p669-86 Sep 1992
Reports results on an analysis of five seventh grade life science textbooks for sexist language, images, and curricular content. Authors conclude that sexist language and images exist in these textbooks. The content of all of the books contained a relatively low level of integration of achievements of women scientists and a lack of information relating to women's health issues. (PR)
