Can You Tell Me How To Get Beyond Amazon? Stories of an Outdoorswoman.
Newberry, Liz
Pathways: The Ontario Journal of Outdoor Education, v11 n4 p4-8 Jun-Jul 1999
Through anecdotes, a female outdoor educator highlights the importance of role-modeling gender equality, but also suggests a need to explore the cultural assumptions behind sexual roles; what is served by them; and the social mechanisms that reinforce them, such as homophobia. Educational strategies to help women gain and claim competence in the outdoors are discussed. (TD)
