The Relationship of Educational Achievement to the Role-Concept of Women

The Relationship of Educational Achievement to the Role-Concept of Women

Date: May 1979
Creator: Mooneyham, Charlotte S.
Description: The problem of this investigation was an analysis of selected variables that affected woman's role-concept. Specifically this research was concerned with how a woman's role-concept was influenced by education. This research concluded that the level of education influenced role-concept. Respondents with more than a high school education were very contemporary. Other variable such as marital status, age, parental views, ethnic group, and major seemed to have little effect on role-concept. All groups surveyed were more contemporary than traditional. Further research to determine if all women are becoming contemporary would be meaningful.
