Women and School Psychology

pp. 24—27

The position of women in the various psychological disciplines has only recently become a focus of interest within the profession. The establishment of a Task Force on the Status of Women in Psychology for the American Psychological Association and its recently published report have raised some important questions in this respect (Astin, 1973). Consideration is being given to such topics as the career prospects of women in academic settings, attitudes towards the dual role of married professional women (Kaley, 1971), equal opportunities for research and publication, etc. The Association for Women in Psychology has been active in alerting women psychologists to the most recent developments in this area, in encouraging child care centers for women attending professional meetings, and for undertaking a “watchdog” function with respect to discriminatory practices.
