Educational and Vocational Guidance for Girls and Women: Expert Meeting on Educational and Vocational Guidance for Girls and Women (Paris, France, February 20-24, 1989).
Bingham, William C.; Martin, Grace
Despite educational expansion, girls and women still face unequal educational and training opportunities. A fundamental cause is the perpetuation of assumptions, beliefs, and prejudices that ignore, belittle, and hinder the aspirations, needs, and capacities of girls and women. Since educational and vocational guidance can promote equal opportunity, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) decided to produce the "Manual on Educational and Vocational Guidance for Girls and Women." The Manual seeks to help girls and women in their efforts toward self-fulfillment through education, training, and career-building. The volume includes five chapters entitled: (1)"Inequality of Opportunity"' (2) "Role and Function of Educational and Vocational Guidance"; (3) "Organizing and Operating a Guidance Program"; (4) Consequences of Effective Guidance Programs"; and (5) "Learning from the Experiences of Others."
