Women's Ambitions: A Three-Generational Study.
Whisler, Sue C.; Eklund, Susan J.
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v10 n4 p353-62 Dec 1986
Describes women's ambitions across three generations. Major ambitions across all generations were marriage/family, educational, and vocational. Change in women's roles and greater economic affluence across generations had the greatest influence on ambition development and attainment. Generational influences were apparent for adjacent generations, but ambitions were more similar within generations than within families. (Author/KS)
