A Study of Attitudes of Married Women toward Married Women's Employment.
Pace, Lois W.
This study investigated the place of personal and background factors in attitudes of married women toward married women's employment. The interview schedule, including an attitude inventory devised by the researcher, was administered to a sample of 236 women in northeastern Missouri. Significant relationships were found between attitudes and these variables: employment experience, educational level; family income, perception of husband's attitude and children's feelings, and occupational status. No relationship to age, family status, place of residence, satisfaction from housework, evaluation of family income, or satisfaction with volunteer service, was found. Groups who viewed women's employment favorably were those who had worked since marriage; had some college or vocational training; had family incomes of $10,000 or more; perceived husbands, children, and peers as approving of their employment; and were employed in higher status occupations. Several implications were derived for continuing educators and employment personnel. (LY)
