Underachievement of Women and Girls: Some Societal and Feminist Views. A Further Study of the Media.
Wilgosh, Lorraine
Education Canada, v36 n3 p25-31 Fall 1996
Discusses two feminist perspectives: the "similarities" tradition minimizes gender differences and promotes full participation of women in a male-dominated world; the "differences" tradition accepts gender differences and promotes increased valuation of women's qualities. Both challenge the status quo, yet both can be subverted to support it. Categorizes 255 news media items related to women into eight themes. (TD)
