In a non-traditional field for women such as agricultural education, the concept of feminist research provides a lens to better regard issues such as balancing family and work life. This study is an attempt to systematically process the individual stories and reflections of women agricultural education teachers across America. Qualitative techniques including historical research and selected survey statements were used to accomplish the objectives of the study.
Society has reached an impasse dealing with working women. A mother is supposed to be a caregiver, but in today's economy she is often expected to be a wage earner. The unique challenges that face the working woman, in a non-traditional field, are reflected through the comments and opinions of the women involved in this study.
