Slappo, Joanne; Katz, Lynda J.
Journal of Rehabilitation, v55 n1 p23-30 Jan-Mar 1989
The survey of 170 disabled women in nontraditional careers found them to be much like their nondisabled counterparts, especially those in professional occupations. The women were mostly White and high academic achievers. The attitude of people toward individuals with disabilities was reported by the women to be a serious obstacle to career development.
