The Cooling Out of Two-Year College Women.
Moore, Kathryn M.
Factors which function to cool women out of a straightforward, unblocked, and open pursuit of their career choices and life plans were sought in interviews with women in four two-year colleges. The factors were found to be: parents, counselors, uncontrollable circumstances, and the two-year institution. Although the women did not perceive the college as an obstacle or hindrance, it appears that two-year colleges are continuing to perpetuate sex stereotyped curricula, such as secretarial and child study, while impassively discouraging women from entering the male-dominated majors.
