Every Woman's Right---The Right to Education and Economic Independence.
Suarez, Cecilia Cota-Robles, Ed.; Anguiano, Lupe, Ed.
In an effort to provide positive program and procedural alternatives for personnel working in educational and training programs for low-income women, the book presents the current situation of minority female low-income heads of household, especially the Chicana, and offers solutions and recommendations regarding the education and training of such women. Focusing on the socialization and education of women, Section I consists of an extensive review of racism and sexism, and their effects on women; a report on college and vocational programs that encourage or discourage the entry and completion of postsecondary courses by female low-income heads of household; and a description of the components of a potentially successful junior college recruitment, counseling, and retention program; Section II contains a discussion and analysis of two questionnaires which focused on economic, education, and training problems of female low-income heads of household. Concerning the preparation of low-income women for work, Section III contains a practical solution to their poverty problems. The Aid to Families with Dependent Children program is used to delineate the money wasted in current programs for low-income women and the resultant low level of benefits to the recipients. Accompanying video tapes are available from the National Chicana Foundation. (SB)
