The following is a revised and edited version of a talk delivered on the Capitol Campus of Pennsylvania State University in the fall of 1980.
One of the best kept secrets in American education is that Philadelphia is providing national leadership in the area of sex equity. Another well-kept secret , I suppose , is what sex equity is. Many of my colleagues in public education, hearing that I work in a sex equity project, assume that I am in sex education and feel called upon to make risque remarks. In this essay, I'll attempt to take the lid off both secrets: to explain sex equity, and how it comes to be flourishing in the city of brotherly love.
