Sex Typing and Social Roles: A Research Report is based on a sociological survey that includes topics regarding changes in sex roles. The book deals with information derived from surveys and reports on the differences and similarities between the behavior, experience, and attitudes of men and women. The book addresses, more particularly, the ongoing changes in the social positions of the sexes, for example, from women's rights and privileges as a "private issue" to a public-policy issue. The book also reviews the work motives, the female role, constraints, and emotions (sadness) encountered. The text analyzes alienation versus engagement—why women say that they are indeed happier at work. The book then discusses the role of civics and sex as regards politics, institutional performance, and rule compliance. The text analyzes the role of religion and the involvement of husbands and wives in social affairs. The role of husbands and wives as partners in marriage is explained in terms of education, division of labor, and marital values. The book also investigates methods of rearing children, parental or expectations, and the response patterns on child-related task items. The text will prove beneficial to psychologists, sociologists, pediatricians, civic leaders, lay ministers, and educators.
