The Influence of the Women's Movement on the Mothers of Mentally Handicapped Children: The Issue of Personal Freedom.
Diprizio, Chrisann; Baer, Stella
A survey of personal freedom completed by 97 mothers of handicapped children touched on such aspects as amount of time spent away from the home, arrangements for supervision of the child, and views regarding women's liberation. Data analysis pointed up such findings as a lack of correlation between the child's age and the mother's working hours, but a highly significant positive correlation with the amount of time away from home devoted to the mother's education (significantly reserved for evenings). In addition, a significant number of mothers had either full or part time jobs or were involved in volunteer activities outside the home. (CL)
