Motherhood as a Dominant Feature in the Self-Image of Female Adolescents of Low Socioeconomic Status.
Shtarkshall, Ronny A.
Adolescence, v22 n87 p565-70 Fall 1987
When socioeconomically and educationally disadvantaged late adolescent women project themselves into the future, they see themselves as mothers. This creates direct transition from daughter role to mother role, excluding spouse or career roles, and distinguishes these women from other female adolescents. Discusses possible explanations and educational implications. (Author/NB)
