Sex, Career and Family: Including an International Review of Women's Roles.
Fogarty, Michael P.; And Others
Although concerned primarily with women in top jobs, the study also extends to women's opportunities in professional and managerial positions. It also focuses on the general pattern of relationships between men and women. Examining the special problem of women's promotion to top jobs, Part 1 studies the discrepancy between women's contribution to the lower and middle ranks of many highly qualified professions and the smaller number of women in higher posts. Part 2 reviews recent developments in Eastern Europe and in Western countries, studying the convergence of their different ideological points of view, attitudes, and policies. Based on national surveys, Part 3 considers the career and family patterns envisaged by young, highly qualified British women and the practicability of reconciling the two careers of husband and wife with successful family life. Part 4 examines the results of studies of women's experience in the following occupations: industrial and general business management, the broadcasting industry, Administrative Civil Service, architecture, medicine, teaching, and social service. Finally Part 5 considers possible long range implications of the enquiry, and of parallel work by Political and Economic Planning (PEP) on the agencies promoting equal opportunities for women. Statistical data are appended. (MW)
