Training the Woman to Know Her Place: The Social Antecedents of Women in the World of Work.
Bem, Sandra L.; Bem, Daryl J.
This report discusses the type of women found in the world of work, their reasons for employment, and their most frequent occupational choices. In paying particular attention to sex discrimination against women, this paper mentions pay differentials and access to lower status jobs, and attributes them partially to the effects of sex-role conditioning on women's aspirations and of America's sex-role ideology. The authors cite specific examples of socialization practices which influence women's expectations. Society introduces further psychological barriers in the form of the professed incompatibility of womanhood and career. The report pursues this topic by considering implications of a career on a woman's role as wife and as mother. The concluding section offers suggestions to the counselor who must acquaint young woman with their increased options. (LAA/Author)
