A Review and Synthesis of Research on Women in the World of Work.
Kievit, Mary Bach
Materials dealing with gainful employment of women, opportunities for employment and advancement, and maximizing opportunities as a means of personal satisfaction and as a contribution to society, were reviewed from the international and national perspective, and as current trends and issues. Realizing that vocational educators have a vital role to play in the full realization of economic rights for women, recommendations for action include: (1) increasing opportunities for developing vocational awareness in relation to aptitudes, abilities, and interests, (2) improving counseling for career choice going beyond the feminine occupations, (3) recruiting girls into programs preparing for employment in a wider range of occupations and career ladders, (4) directing attention to preparation for the dual role of homemaker and employee, and (5) initiating various research and action efforts to modify attitudes of students, teachers, parents, and employers which place artificial restrictions on occupations of women.
