Women and the World of Work.
Tobin, Nancy; Wilson, Barbara Lazarus
One of the products developed by the Home and Community-Based Career Education Project, the booklet focuses on the concerns of women who want or need to begin or resume a career. It describes today's working woman, examines her options, and presents practical suggestions for overcoming obstacles in planning for and implementing career decisions. Included are an analysis of the labor market, the reasons for the current status of working women, and the advantages and problems associated with entering formerly male-dominated areas of the labor market. In discussing areas related to personal assessment, job search techniques, and fears about going back to work or school, the booklet may be used to provide counselors and clients with information about the common educational and employment problems of women. The appendix adds information about civil rights, equal employment opportunities, equal pay, and other antidiscrimination legislation, with advice on using the laws. (MF)
