Title: North Dakota Women in the Occupational World: Commitment, Worries and Coping
Author: Light, Harriet K.; Hanson, Richard A.
Description: By 1982, women in the US work force was common place. This articles presents a study to answer the questions of how well do North Dakota women handle conflicts in the family and their employment commitments, the reasons why they work out the home and whether or not these women still worry about their family's welfare. The findings concluded that these women were still concerned for their family's well being and took their family responsibilities seriously. Unlike their North Dakota women ancestors, these modern women di not expect their children to help with household work. Als, these modern women were dedicated to their employment and career advancements. These women employment outside the home for financial reasons. These modern career wives did not try to explain to their husbands problems they faced trying to do both career and home at the same time.
