This document describes findings from a survey of the women selected by their companies to receive the TWIN (Tribute to Women and Industry) award given by the Young Women's Christian Association. The women are described in terms of their years employed (the average was 19 years); career development (64 percent promoted within the last 10 years); education (62 percent held master's degrees); salary (over half earned over $51,000 annually); vocational plans (most want higher levels of management); sexual harassment (30 percent reported some); sex discrimination (half felt discriminated against); beliefs in the business world's receptivity to women (only moderate positive changes in receptivity were reported); ethnicity (84 percent were white); marital status (61 percent were married); income as compared to their spouse's (70 percent were equaling or bettering spouse's income); children (almost half had no children); use of child care (relatives and nursery schools were the most frequently cited types); difficulty in finding appropriate child care (this was an issue for 60 percent of the respondents); leisure activities (36 percent did not have time); and the impact that winning the TWIN award had had on their lives (the greatest impact was on their subordinates). The appendix of the report contains a copy of the survey instrument and the percentage of respondents' answers to each question. (CML)
