KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a comprehensive discussion of the vocational guidance of women which is addressed primarily to those whose function it is to help girls and women in their occupational planning. The language is not technical but neither is it particularly readable and the value of the book for the non-professional person would probably be its descriptions of the various agencies and programs designed for vocational guidance. The author begins by examining the common problems men and women face in their work and the special problems women encounter along with the feminine characteristics which affect the work of women inside and outside the home. She then describes vocational programs in schools, colleges, social agencies -- on the local and federal level, among religious groups, in women's organizations. There is also a special section on the guidance of the handicapped, older women, racial groups and the academically gifted. Finally the author provides a discussion of improved techniques and methods in guidance and the expanding opportunities for women.
