Careers in Education for the New Woman
Whenever I see titles that tout advice for the “new” woman, I am immediately concerned. It was a phrase thrown around in the 1970s that alluded to career oriented women also known as a “liberated” woman. (I should further limit this definition to privileged, educated white women.)
For the most part, this book outlines educational oriented careers, including librarianship. It gives a brief overview and peppers the rest of the book with personal narratives. Yes, this book was still in circulation and I have a particular pet peeve regarding career materials. Just remember that all those new women are now old women.
