Robin Forster asked for info on the following:

Girls Inc published a report on August 1992 titled Past the Pink and Blue
Predicament: Freeing the Next Generation from Sex Stereotypes.

This report is based on a much longer version commissioned by the Carnegie
Council on Adolescent Development, Task Force on Youth Development and
Community Programs, as Gender Issues in Youth Development Programs.

You can get a copy from Girls Inc. National Resource Center, 441 West
Michigan Street, Indianapolis IN 46202, ph: 317-634-7546.

I'm sharing with the group because it is a great resource that others might
find useful.
