Women and the future : changing sex roles in modern America by Janet Zollinger Giele( Book )

17 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giele, who served as a consultant to the Ford Foundation Task Force on women's fights, has effectively digested a wide-ranging body of research on the future of sex roles in America. Convinced that the women's movement has sparked nothing less than a major social revolution embracing politics, work, education, the family, and our own cultural images, she sees the merging of traditional male and female priorities as essential to society's survival ("Nothing less than a new social contract is at issue"). In the realm of politics, women are gradually becoming "resocialized" to involvement at increasingly more powerful levels; in the world of work, women will be helped by emerging "alternative economic values" that emphasize "localized production and dispersed communities" (a far more radical approach than simple reliance on affirmative action). A new flexibility of approach to family roles allowing "crossover between male and female roles," as well as escalating community concern with family-support programs, points to a "greater rationalization of family life," while educational structures are struggling to incorporate the humanistic and expressive values characteristic of women with their traditional instrumental values. Finally, our "ideal images" in religion, the arts, and the media are abandoning sexual stereotyping in favor of an ""androgynous ideal"" of adult behavior that combines "power, discipline, and intellectual strength with vulnerability, fecundity or fruitfulness, and a capacity for rich and complex emotions." A timely perspective on current fragmentations that may lead to a more integrated social fabric. -- From https://www.kirkusreviews.com (Sep. 29, 2016)

Two paths to women's equality : temperance, suffrage, and the origins of modern feminism by Janet Zollinger Giele( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""The temperance and suffrage movements illustrate three important points for modern-day feminists," Giele concludes. "First, the early leaders were inspired by the challenges and difficulties in their own lives to envision the new social order in which they wanted to live. Second, they organized and pressed their agenda for social change until they won a wider following. Finally, they welded their claims on behalf of others together with claims on behalf of themselves. United for social responsibility as well as for individual rights, their cause could not be turned aside." Giele's original research, comprehensive historical knowledge, insightful analysis, and thoughtful application of scholarly theory to real-life practice render this volume useful to practicing feminists and students of feminist and social movement history alike."--Jacket

10 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women's work and women's lives : the continuing struggle worldwide( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A provocative analysis of the nature of the relation between women and paid work in both modernizing and industrial countries, this book explores the variables that shape the relationship: demographic factors, the social and cultural context, the political environment, and the level and direction of economic development. Contributors point to a number of similarities in the roles, activities, and status of women in countries with varying levels of development, but they also argue that women's productive activities in both market and nonmarket economies exhibit distinctive characteristics, having evolved in ways that reflect the particular circumstances of the country. An introductory section provides a historical and sociological framework for the analysis as well as a statistical overview of women's nonagricultural employment. The country case studies that follow focus on health, education, and family roles and provide a wealth of data about the characteristics of paid work and the workplace, including occupations and earnings, technological change, pay equity, work schedules, cooperatives, and the informal labor market

Changing Life Patterns in Western Industrial Societies by Janet Zollinger Giele( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hardly any broad analyses exist to link the vast contemporary change in life patterns both to changes in women's lives (rising employment, declining fertility, and changing use of time) and to changes in men's lives, the gender contract, and the economy, as well as to national social policies. This book shows not only similar trends across countries but also the likely direction of future change, particularly as related to economic growth, gender equity, and the well-being of families and children. The first chapter, an overview by the editors, provides a comprehensive conceptual framework for
