Why Does Jane Read and Write So Well? The Anomaly of Women's Achievement.
Mickelson, Roslyn Arlin
Sociology of Education, v62 n1 p47-63 Jan 1989
Analyzes the anomaly of why women continue to seek higher education and excel even though future payoff is poor. Examines four hypotheses: reference-group theory; social powerlessness; belief that barriers to success have been removed; and sex-role socialization. Presents empirical evidence to assess each hypothesis. (SLM)
