Summary

Due to the entry of large numbers of married women, the female work force in Australia has grown greatly and continues to grow at a faster rate than the male work force. With the increase of working mothers, communities and industry need to consider child care centers for young children, after-school and holiday projects for school-aged children, and availability of part-time employment. The educational preparation and training of males and females showed a great upsurge during the 1960's, and the number of females seeking higher education has increased. In terms of industries in which women are employed and the occupations in which they are engaged, there has been little change in the past 20 years. Few women are in top employment positions, and few have developed trade skills. In the 1960's women tended to cluster in: (1) educational and training courses "acceptable" for females, (2) occupations which offer females clean work under good conditions, and (3) occupations where job satisfaction is of prime consideration. Of the barriers restricting wider employment opportunities for women, attitudinal restructions are by far the most important and difficult to surmount. In view of these restrictions, it was recommended that employers offer wider job and career opportunities to women and that working women seek and accept these opportunities. (SB)
