History of career counseling for women

Helen S. Farmer

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The theory and practice related to career counseling for women have gone through major changes in the past 50 years. During the 1950s and 1960s little attention in the literature was given to career counseling for women. However, with the advent of the amendments to civil rights and higher education legislation in 1972, including Title VII and Title IX related to sex equity in education and the workplace, there was a flowering of interest in career counseling for women and the literature exploded with theory, research, and practice applications.
