Women in the Profession of Adult Education.
Loring, Rosalind
The challenge of International Women's Year for us is to expand educational opportunities for all women. Between and among the national organizations we can demonstrate our willingness to share our accumulated knowledge of problem-solving methods applied to personal and community needs both here and abroad. Relatively recent trends (modern psychology, the pill, increased education for women) have altered the lives of women and, therefore, of men and of nations. When we turn to women workers who are professionals in adult and continuing education, several specifics are apparent: a few women have always been in the field; women's activities have expanded into other fields; there has been a rapid growth in participation by women adult educators in the specific field of women's rights, and in other new fields such as black studies and adult basic education. The issues of employment are complicated by a number of trends now emerging that are potentially in direct conflict with traditional procedures and standards. Many women are using the legal approach to correcting inequity. My own preference is also to seek alternative means. Both men and women will benefit if we approach the future experimentally.
