Deterrents to Women's Participation in Work-Related Educational Activities.
Blais, Jean-Guy; And Others
Adult Education Quarterly, v39 n4 p224-34 Sum 1989
Studied reasons for nonparticipation in continuing education to determine whether women in traditionally female professions faced specific deterrents. Analysis of responses from a random sample of 909 nurses (of 2,063 surveyed) found five clusters of reasons: low priority for work-related education, absence of external incentives, incidental costs, irrelevance of additional education for professional practice, and lack of affective support.
