Neglected Women: The Educational Needs of Displaced Homemakers, Single Mothers, and Older Women.
The educational needs of neglected women are described in this report in the form of testimony from nationwide hearings on the subject, profiles of specific types of women, and case histories. Following each profile, solutions to the problems presented are suggested and existing programs are listed. Recommendations are made to revise existing legislation and programs so that they will be of greater benefit to displaced homemakers, single mothers, and older women. Also recommended is new legislation which would aid educationally disadvantaged women by: (1) providing financial assistance for such women; (2) providing for non-taxable assistance by employers for career advancement education for such women; and (3) including in new legislation on displaced homemakers a broad definition of eligibility. Appendices include the agenda from hearings, a list of participants and contributors, suggested funding resources for financial aid for adult women to continue education, and a large bibliography of works related to women's employment and education.
