Gender Differences in Supported Employment.
Olson, Deborah; Cioffi, Andrea; Yovanoff, Paul; Mank, David
Mental Retardation, v38 n2 p89-96 Apr 2000
This study examined existing data on 561 individuals with disabilities receiving supported employment services to evaluate questions about gender equity. It found that, although women were perceived as being generally more socially appropriate, they usually worked in jobs traditionally stereotyped by gender. Women also worked fewer hours than did men and therefore earned somewhat less money. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
