Stephenson, M. Beth; Burge, Penny L.
Journal of Vocational Education Research, v22 n3 p153-71 1997
Interviews with eight women enrolled in gender-nontraditional associate degree programs at a community college revealed that most were preparing for work out of economic necessity, chose nontraditional occupations for better pay, and had strong female role models. Most instructors and peers provided a welcoming environment that outweighed a few instances of sexism and harassment. (SK)
