This book is a history of the genesis and development of vocational education for young women in the United States. Home economics, trade training and commercial education - the three key areas of vocational training available to young women during the progressive era - are the focus of this work. Beginning with a study of the "woman question", or what women were supposed to be, the book traces the three curriculum areas from prescription, through lively discussions of policy to the actual programs and student responses to the programs. The author tells the story of education for work from several different perspectives and draws on a vast array of sources to paint this broad canvas of vocational education for young women at the turn of the twentieth century.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`With few exceptions, historians of vocationalism have followed the lead of the pioneers in the filed by neglecting girls. But now in this insightful and important book, Jane Bernard Powers illuminates the other side of the story...a timely and significant contribution to the literature of educational history and women's history.' David B Tyack, Stanford University, USA.
