Part 7 of KPFA's presentation of the University of California's Medical Center Conference "The Challenge to Women: the Biological Avalanche" held in San Francisco this year. This is Part 5 of "The Enduring and Ephemeral in Women's Life." In this recording Gail J. Putney, Assistant Professor of Sociology at San Jose State College presents "Children: In Dreams Come Unexpected Responsibilities," an examination of the role of dreams for child development.
Notes on label: "Girls not asked what they want to be & roles they play when young & children of young girl's dreams tied together. Large families are dreams come true of 1930s. Daughters of war - atomic age - threat of extinction. Dreams are "innocent" views about children and babies. Dreams not of suburbs. Sociology of the suburbs."
