Women in Liberal Adult Education.
Cousin, Glynis
Adults Learning (England), v2 n2 p38-39 Oct 1990
The dichotomy between vocationalism and nonvocationalism is false because nonvocationalism is a misnomer. Liberal education for self-improvement, largely oriented toward women, is only nonvocational in that it rarely leads to paid work. In another sense, it is vocational in that it is concerned with preparation for the "job" of wife and mother. (SK)
