Review by Choice Review
Begun in 1985 and completed in early 1993, this bibliography was created for sex equity staff, administrators, teachers, and counselors "in their attempts to overcome gender role stereotyping and sex bias in schools." A majority of the resources included were published over a decade ago, reflecting the intense interest in vocational education, nontraditional careers, and sex equity on the parts of national and state agencies, school boards, and organizations of that era. Most of these titles are still available for purchase. Citations are grouped under 23 alphabetically arranged categories that range from "Agriculture and Industry" to "Women's Studies." Stitt (information systems and women's studies, Southern Illinois Univ. at Carbondale) chose to include what campus curriculum committees would call "classics." This is a particularly useful resource for libraries that never had (or have discarded) the Women's Equity Action League's WEAL Washington Report and TABS Aids for Equal Education resources. For sex equity research--particularly for materials on cultural diversity--this bibliography must be supplemented by more current resources, but it is a fine volume leading to timeless materials.
