The Construction of Femininity Embraced in the Work of Caring for Children: Caught between Aspirations and Reality.
Lewis, Magda
Journal of Educational Thought, v22 n2A p259-68 Oct 1988
Presents a case study of a high school student's participation in a cooperative education program in day care. Shows that while the student's practical understanding of childcare directed her occupational choice, her insistence on the validity of that understanding blocked her from pursuing the formal qualifications needed in the labor market.
