Wicke-Nelson, Rita; Ewen, Lynda Ann
Journal of Rural Community Psychology, vE1 n1 Fall 1997
An exploratory study examined the characteristics and attitudes of 78 West Virginia women, age 25 and older, who enrolled in a state college after an absence from schooling. The women were embedded in traditional Appalachian networks of family, church, and community but demonstrated quite liberal social attitudes toward women's roles, abortion, and female political leadership.
