A Hero's Journey: Young Women among Males in Forestry Education.
Follo, Gro
Journal of Rural Studies, v18 n3 p293-306 Jul 2002
Norwegian girls' experiences in secondary school forestry courses were analyzed in terms of the "hero's journey" archetypal myth. Interviews with 12 girls and 11 boys in forestry courses indicated that girls were capable and fit for practical forestry work, gender attitudes were not a barrier, and girls did not meet opposition from male students or teachers.
