Women's Education des femmes, Winter 1985 - Vol. 4, No. 2
Authors: Gail Paradise Kelly
Girls' attitudes toward their education, as well as boys' toward girls and their prospective roles, are shaped by media, advertisement and the culture which deny women's claim to equality with men. This socialization effect is powerful, so much so that even when structural barriers are removed, females are reluctant to enter fields such as science, technology, and administration, which are identified as male domains. For educational equality to become a reality, education needs to be reformed, but so also do society and its cultural norms about appropriate sex roles.
The article, written in Englis, begins with a summary in French.
