Hildenbrand, Suzanne
Library Trends, v34 n2 p185-98 Fall 1985
Model for looking at the position of women in librarianship and other female-intensive professions consists of three parts: needs of emerging progressive or welfare state with its ever-growing list of activities; prevailing gender system in progressive America; and adjustments required to accommodate tensions between the first two. Forty-four references are cited. (EJS)
