The way a society sculptures sex roles is extremely crucial for the optimal development of its members. A variety of forces have coalesced to restructure traditional sex roles in industrialtechnological- bureaucratic societies. The symmetry option suggests that the restructuring will mean more balance in love and work roles in the lives of men and women. Hopefully, the removal of sex-role typing will mean more opportunities for all people to maximize their own human development and to maximize benefits to the society at large. © 1978, Sage Publications.
