Despite nearly two decades of advocacy for equal education and employment, women remain clustered in the lowest-paid, lowest-status jobs in clerical, service, and industrial work. Occupational segregation also continues within professional and technical fields. This book examines the critical link between sex stereotyping in education and occupational inequities in the work place. Contributors first assess the impact of sex and race stereotyping and discrimination on girls in school. Next they examine workplace issues-including job training, access to non-traditional jobs, and occupational segregation. A final section takes up the question of the role of education in perpetuating or alleviating women's poverty. The book concludes by offering a number of policy recommendations and strategies for change.
