Media's Gender Bias and the 'Smurfette Principle'
Nearly three decades after the 'Feminist Movement' and the initiation of the Equal Rights Amendment, much of the entertainment media is still reflecting lower-level roles, even subordinate roles for women. This 4 page essay explores 'The Smurfette Principle' in terms of various preschool television shows. The similarity of today's storylines to those of 25 and more years ago is astounding. . . a rather incredible fact in light of the feminist movement. Gender bias is alive and well in entertainment media. No bibliography.
Type of Feminism
This 7 page report discusses the evolution of the radical and reform sectors of the feminist movement. By the middle of the 1970's, the original formats of feminist consciousness-raising gave way to one through which women began to examine their subordinate status in other hierarchies that were based on race, politics, or sexual orientation rather than only gender. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
Feminism of the Sixties and Nursing
A 5 page examination of the manner in which nursing changed at the impetus of the feminist movement of the 1960s. Previously relegated to primarily a subservient role in the health care environment and restricted solely to the hospital or doctor’s office, nurses took their lead from the feminist movement to remold their view of themselves as competent professionals. No longer simply puppets of those who had previously held the power and prestige in health care, nurses banded together to make a difference both in the political aspects of healthcare and in nursing theory. Consequently, this time in nursing history was one of the most productive in terms of the degree to which nurses would add to healthcare practice.
