Women at Work. Career and Vocational Education Professional Development Report No. 16.
Ellis, Mary L., Ed.
The document is based upon three two-day regional seminar workshops and one national invitational seminar workshop on women in the world of work held during 1973-74 and designed to further the professional development of vocational-technical education leaders. The first section contains three parts: (1) Introduction, discussing the social and psychological influences affecting the status and equality of women; (2) Recommendation and Program for Action, listing 14 policies and practices suggested by workshop participants as a guideline to help correct female discrimination in education and employment; and (3) Impact of the Workshops, providing a list of selected post-workshop activities engaged in by participants at various administrative levels in an attempt to improve educational and employment opportunities for women. Full texts of nine speeches explore aspects of the labor force, laws, education and employment, the women's rights movement, and career education in relation to working women. These are appended, together with the questionnaire sent to participants after the conference workshops and their responses; agendas and participant lists for the various workshop conferences; and an extensive bibliography listing books, reports, and articles suitable for general, children, and specialized reading. The appendixes make up the bulk of the document. (LH)
