WOMEN UNIVERSITY GRADUATES IN CONTINUING EDUCATION AND EMPLOYMENT, AN EXPLORATORY STUDY INITIATED BY THE CANADIAN FEDERATION OF UNIVERSITY WOMEN 1966, AND LA FEMME DIPLOMEE FACE A L'EDUCATION PERMANENTE ET AU MONDE DU TRAVAIL.
COCKBURN, PATRICIA; RAYMOND, YVONNE R.
TO MEASURE THE EMPLOYMENT POTENTIAL OF CANADIAN WOMEN UNIVERSITY GRADUATES, TO INTEREST GOVERNMENT IN RETRAINING PROFESSIONAL WOMEN, AND TO ASSESS THE INTEREST OF WOMEN IN CONTINUING THEIR UNIVERSITY EDUCATION, A MAIL SURVEY WAS MADE OF 10,000 MEMBERS OF THE CANADIAN FEDERATION OF UNIVERSITY WOMEN, 500 NON-MEMBER GRADUATES, AND 850 FRENCH-SPEAKING WOMEN GRADUATES. THERE WAS AN OVERALL RESPONSE RATE OF 40 PERCENT. DATA WERE GATHERED ON AGE, MARITAL STATUS, FAMILY INCOME LEVEL, PROVINCIAL DISTRIBUTION, EMPLOYMENT AND EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND, SECOND LANGUAGE FLUENCY, AND PLANS FOR TAKING UNIVERSITY CREDIT OR NONCREDIT COURSES, PART-TIME OR FULL-TIME, AND SUBJECT FIELDS OF INTEREST. A FELT NEED APPEARED FOR VOCATIONAL COUNSELING, CHANGES IN THE INCOME TAX STRUCTURE, MORE PART-TIME JOBS, AND DOMESTIC HELP. UNIVERSITIES SHOULD BE LESS RIGID AND PROVINCIAL IN ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS AND IN MAKING PROVISION FOR PART-TIME STUDY. PROGRAMS SHOULD BE MORE STIMULATING AND PROVISIONS FOR FINANCIAL HELP AND CHILD CARE SHOULD BE MADE. EDUCATIONAL AUTHORITIES AND INSTITUTIONS, BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY, SHOULD JOIN WITH GOVERNMENT RESEARCH DEPARTMENTS IN FURTHER RESEARCH ON WOMEN GRADUATES.
