Foreigners to the Culture: Women in Trades and Technologies (1991)

Women's Education des femmes, Fall 1991- Vol. 9, No. 2

It seems, that although there is an increase in the number of women entering the trades and technologies, many are not staying. The reason is not that they don't like the work, but because they can't stand the environment.
