Changing Gender Roles in Families, Occupational, and Civic Settings


by Elise Boulding 1987

We will examine how socialization and enculturation take place for women and men within each of the three types of communities at this moment of history. Structures handed down from past traditions fit poorly the developmental needs of women and men in these rapidly changing times. By looking first at the historical reality and the straitjacket of stereotypes which has constrained that reality, we get a better sense of the ongoing nature of the struggle in which women and men now find themselves. It is new, but it is also very old. What is new is the more active interplay of household, occupation, and civic areas for both sexes. There are no historical precedents for this, so the resocialization has to take place without adequate role models.
