Women Offenders in Non-Traditional Work. A Report, Summer 1974-Spring 1977. Program for Women Offenders.
Hargrove, Ann Hughes; Faucett, Jan E.
This report describes a demonstration project conducted by Wider Opportunities for Women in which women who had been found guilty of criminal offenses, child abuse, or child neglect were trained and placed in nontraditional jobs. The project was carried out from mid-summer, 1974, to spring, 1977, in the Washington, D.C., area. The report is divided into four sections. The first section, Program Profile, is a summary of the major features of the program, such as goals, standards, and components. Section 2, Participant Profile, details the women's demographic features in relation to other sub-groups of women in the area, and summarizes responses of the women to selected questions over an attitudinal survey cycle. Section 3, Program Results, summarizes two major result dimensions: placements and terminations. Placements are reviewed by quality, quantity, and type. Terminations are analyzed by type and in relation to demographic characteristics of the participants. The final section, Program Implications, suggests major implications of the evaluation findings as they relate to program development and national policies. (KC)
