Abstract

The research reported here was motivated by the belief that, in the fields of science and engineering, the woman professional represents a critically underdeveloped and underutilized national resource; that there exist pressing economic and legal reasons, as well as growing social and moral pressures, for attempting to correct this situation; and that effective corrective action will require and improved understanding of the factors and mechanisms that currently result in low levels of professional involvement by women in these areas. The immediate objective of the present research is to improve our understanding of the working woman professional in science and engineering.
