New Role for Men, A

Synopsis
What has been the effect of the changing role of women upon men? Gives the views of some boys from two schools in the Midlands, a comprehensive school in Corby and an independent school in nearby Oakham, also mixed. How do boys see their role as men; what domestic tasks do they expect to perform? The main question asked of the boys was how they would feel about the situation when a man loses his job and stays at home to look after young children while his wife goes out to work. The questions were also asked of 6th-form boys and younger boys.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
