Astin, Alexander W.
Review of Higher Education, v21 n2 p115-35 Win 1998
Data from an annual national survey of college freshmen indicate the women's movement has had dramatic effects on educational aspirations, career plans, behavior, and values of young women entering college and equally dramatic effects on attitudes of both men and women toward women's roles. One consequence is that current male and female freshmen are more alike today than in 1966. (MSE)
