Attention: Women at Work!

Top of page

In this documentary about women in non-traditional jobs, a hovercraft pilot, an architect and two construction journeywomen speak of their success in a male-dominated workplace and the difficulties they had to overcome. Each one offers practical advice on the choice of a career. These career portraits are intercut with a discussion among teenaged girls about the factors that influence career choices: sex-role stereotyping, fear of failure, self-image, marriage, motherhood, and family expectations. A good discussion-starter for teenagers, parents, educators, and career counsellors.

1983, 28 min 20 s
