Title

Women's Role Orientation in Three Types of French Canadian Educational Institutions

Description

Qualitative analysis of self-concepts of college women and their varying attitudes toward gender roles. Based on data collected through questionnaires to women in different types of French Canadian schools - "classical colleges," "normal schools," and "family institutions" - in separate regions in Québec. Analysis of survey results explores the effects of how different schools have prepared women for adulthood and citizenship. Presents in numerical data the orientation of these schools and their female students toward prescriptive gender roles. Measures personal traits and family as influences on gender role assumptions within the observed French Canadian populations. Contains an overview of other pertinent sociological research. Written in the context of a period of change in the education system of the Quebec province. From the author: "The problem that this research attempted to solve was how to explain diversity and specificity in role orientation among college women."
