Title

Occupations for Women. A Study Made for the Southern Woman's Educational Alliance.

Description

Orie Latham Hatcher, Ph.D. was head of the Bureau of Vocations in Virginia, a group founded in 1915.

Dr. Hatcher and the work of the Bureau of Vocations was described in The Virginia Teacher (vol. 2, no. 5, p. 128):

"She is the head of a unique institution, the Bureau of Vocation of Virginia, which was founded six years ago in Richmond, under her inspiration. This institution exerts a strong educational influence. It inspires women first, to the best general education possible, then to adequate special training in some one field of work wisely chosen."

Occupations for Women contains a preliminary essay written by Hatcher entitled "Women Who Work," in which Hatcher presents the various points of view related to women working outside the home at different stages of life. Towards the end of the essay, Hatcher describes "Signs of Progress" and "Handicaps to Progress."

Excerpts from that essay, and the introduction to the section of the book dealing with Social Work, are presented here.
