Women: Their Educational and Career Roles. An Annotated Bibliography of Selected ERIC References. ERIC-IRCD Urban Disadvantaged Series, Number 31, August 1972.
This annotated bibliography has been prepared to deal with the issue of women as a group whose realistic and creative contributions have often been hindered by traditional employment patterns and social institutions. The listing encompasses document citations in "Research in Education" from November 1966 through December of 1971, and journal citations in "Current Index to Journals in Education" from January 1969 through December 1971. Much of the literature cited is research oriented, and is divided into seven sections: women in the society, counseling women, women in academia (as students), continuing education for women, career choice and development for women, and women in the world of work. Documents cited are concerned to a large degree with the woman who has completed at least her high school education. The literature does bear out the claims of discrimination which have been raised for so long, and, indeed, throughout the bibliography materials appear which talk to this issue. Other areas discussed in the literature cited are the attitudes and concerns of women in relation to society in general, the academic world, or the working world--career, job, or education in relation to marriage and family being the dominant theme; and programs and institutions for women such as special univeristy programs, Women's Talent Corps, and the New York State Guidance Center for Women.
