Placing the treatment of women in an historical and political context, these original essays focus on education and training for occupations that require less than a four-year college degree. These include clerical, service, and blue-collar occupations where the overwhelming majority of todays working women earn their living. The contributors examine the major public training programs that are aimed at people who are entering the labor market for the first time as well as those offered to workers of all ages who need employment assistance. Sharon L. Harlan directs the research program at the Center for Women in Government, State University of New York at Albany. She has been funded by the U.S. Department of Labor and the National Science Foundation to study federal job training policy. Ronnie J. Steinberg teaches Sociology at Temple University and is the editor of Equal Employment Policy for Women (Temple).
