Alice in Wonderland, or, Through the Looking Glass; Resources for Implementing Principles of Affirmative Action Employment of Women.
Wheeler, Helen Rippier
The annotated bibliography of resources for implementing principles of affirmative action employment of women consists of an alphabetical listing of 64 references of periodicals, organizations, films, books, pamphlets, tapes, slides, and microfilms. In a three-page introduction to the problem, the author defines an affirmative action program as "a set of specific result-oriented action-commitments and procedures designed to systematically achieve an equitable redistribution of both sexes (and other protected classes) within a workforce." The author further sees the program as one containing goals and timetables so that the workforce distribution takes place as soon as possible within a prescribed time period, with major program emphasis on the recognition and removal of barriers, identification of persons unfairly excluded or held back, and action enabling them to compete for jobs on an equal basis. Disparate treatment of sexes, wage differentials, and harrassment are singled out as examples of specific charges typically needing to be filed by females in institutions without affirmative action programs or with token programs. The author also stresses open advertising policies that communicate news of specialized employment opportunities to all qualified women. (Author/EA)
