Recruiting Women for Traditionally "Male" Careers: Programs and Resources for Getting Women into the Men's World.
Association of American Colleges, Washington, DC. Project on the Status and Education of Women.
Since counselors and teachers have found that special materials are often needed to help counter sex role stereotyping and to help young women make more realistic career decisions, this paper lists various resources which have been developed and used by colleges and universities in counseling and recruiting women for careers formerly considered "for men only." Presented in four parts, the first section reviews some programmatic approaches to recruiting women to enter traditionally "male" fields. The second section discusses some examples of special recruiting materials, and the third section lists a sampling of available publications and resource groups in selected fields. The final section lists resources that may be especially helpful in recruiting minority women. (BM)
