Educational and Occupational Aspirations of Adult Women. Report to the College Entrance Examination Board.
Katz, Joseph; And Others
The first chapter of this report, "Career and Autonomy in College Women," by Joseph Katz deals with the career choice of undergraduate women at San Jose City College and Stanford University. Chapter 2, "Adult Women at Work and at Home," by Joseph Katz, and Chapter 3, "Career-Oriented versus Home-Oriented Women," by Marjorie M. Lozoff, present data based on questionnaire responses from alumnae of Santa Rosa Junior College and Stanford University who were between 26 and 50 years old in 1968, from hour-by-hour diaries of two full days in the lives of 17 college educated adult women in the San Francisco Peninsula area, and from interviews with 27 of the women who had completed the questionnaires. Chapter 4, "Images of Women in Women's Magazines," by Peggy Comstock, presents a content analysis of a selected number of women's magazines in terms of the attitudes toward education, career, and home that are held or presumably held, by middle-class adult women. Chapter 5, "Selected Bibliography on Women: 1950-1969," by Peggy Comstock, presents a survey of an annotated bibliography of the literature on the educational and occupational situation of adult women. The questionnaire results, the questionnaire form, and the interview protocol are presented in the appendix. (AF)
