Solnick, Sara J.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v48 n3 p505-14 Apr 1995
Anticipated and final majors of 1,700 students at 8 women's colleges and 818 female students at 7 coed colleges were analyzed. At women's colleges, 40-70% of the women shifted from female-dominated to neutral or male-dominated majors, compared with only 25% at coed schools. At both types of schools, 22% of women left male-dominated majors. (SK)
