Women in the World of Work.
Wright, Elizabeth
Economic, social, and cultural changes in American society have contributed to a significant increase in the number of women in the work force. A review of existing literature concerning "women in the world of work" form the basis of this document. Fourteen graphics contribute to the detailed study of statistical data. The review cites descriptions of the forces affecting change, characteristics of women workers, and the psychological, social, and economic factors affecting the decision to work. To supplement the interpretation and reaction to the current literature, a conference of leaders in fields directly concerned with the training and employment of women was conducted. Implications, conclusions, and opinions are included for education, business education, and office occupations, guidance, health, home economics, business and service areas. An 80-item bilbiography is included. (FP)
