The Idaho Territorial Penitentiary's First Female Inmate, Fred E. Woods Dec 1997

The Idaho Territorial Penitentiary's First Female Inmate, Fred E. Woods

All Faculty Publications

While doing research on the experience of Mormon polygamists incarcerated at the Idaho Penitentiary, Fred Woods became curious about a woman imprisoned there at the same time. The Idaho Penitentiary's Convict Register names "Heneba" as the first female inmate received, on May 31, 1887. Next to her name is written in parentheses "squaw." For many years it has been unclear whether "Heneba" was her first or last name and what the background of this mysterious Native American was. Information about her age at the time of her incarceration, her family life, and the details of her later years and ...

Journal Of Managerial Issues Women In Management And Firm Financial Performance: An Exploratory Study, Charles B. Shrader, Virginia Blackburn, Paul Iles Oct 1997

Journal Of Managerial Issues Women In Management And Firm Financial Performance: An Exploratory Study, Charles B. Shrader, Virginia Blackburn, Paul Iles

Management Publications

Modern business is clearly con- ducted in uncertain contexts. Today's firms are faced with ever increasing international competitive pressures, unstable capricious markets, new and complex technologies, and with dramatic changes in society in general. Paramount among these changing contexts is the change in the management composition of firms due to women assuming management positions. The American work force is one of the most ethnically and gender diverse in the world (Cox and Smolinski, 1994). For firms, this diversity affords new opportunities and challenges. According to Nichols (1993), in this decade, women managers will redefine managerial work and will provide ...


Women, Technology, And Rural Life: Some Recent Literature, Pamela Riney-Kehrberg Oct 1997

Women, Technology, And Rural Life: Some Recent Literature, Pamela Riney-Kehrberg

Pamela Riney-Kehrberg

Historical study of American farm women has had a relatively short life, reaching back approximately twenty years. Rural women rarely existed in earlier scholarship that reserved the categories of farmer and farming for males. Agricultural history thus manifested itself as a story of men and their tools, stretching back historiographically into the early days of the 20th century. Although in 1953 Jared van Wagenen described in careful detail many of the physical processes of farming in The Golden Age of Homespun, the women's work from which he derived his title occupied less than twenty pages at the end of ...

Court-Created Boundaries Between A Visible Lesbian Mother And Her Children, Susan J. Becker Oct 1997

Court-Created Boundaries Between A Visible Lesbian Mother And Her Children, Susan J. Becker

Law Faculty Articles and Essays

This essay identifies some of the boundaries and obstacles imposed by the courts on a "visible" lesbian mother striving to maintain a healthy relationship with her children. The term "visible" is used to describe a mother whose lesbian sexuality has been revealed to a court empowered with defining her future contact with her children. The primary focus here is on children who were conceived through a heterosexual relationship, and where a heterosexual parent, grandparent, or other person is challenging the lesbian mother's right to custody of, or visitation with, her own children. Court created boundaries are identified and discussed ...

Allied Health Professions In The Health-Sector Job Structure, Françoise J. Carré Sep 1997

Allied Health Professions In The Health-Sector Job Structure, Françoise J. Carré

New England Journal of Public Policy

This article reviews the characteristics of allied health professions in the U.S., Massachusetts, and Boston health sectors. These occupations are considered in the broader context of the multitiered job structure of the health sector and their gender and ethnic composition. The discussion includes surveys of vacancy rates and wage levels for selected allied health professions in Massachusetts hospitals. The article concludes with a more detailed, albeit national, picture of these occupations in the hospital sector per se, their demographic composition, and earnings level.


Job Mobility Of Entry-Level Workers: Black And Latina Women In Hospital Corridors, Maria Estella Carrión Sep 1997

Job Mobility Of Entry-Level Workers: Black And Latina Women In Hospital Corridors, Maria Estella Carrión

New England Journal of Public Policy

Based on data from interviews with fifteen black and fifteen Latina women in entry-level jobs, this article discusses job access strategies, patterns of job mobility, and barriers to upward job mobility for low-income minority women in the hospital industry. Concentrated in the lowest wage levels and job tiers, they are quite diverse in subgroup composition, in age, and in training requirements. The research confirms that deficiencies in schooling and skills remain the major obstacles minority women confront when they apply for hospital jobs and restrict their opportunities once they are within the hospital labor market. Efforts to provide training and ...

We Are The Roots: The Culture Of Home Health Aides, Ruth Glasser, Jeremy Brecher

New England Journal of Public Policy

This article focuses on the contributions of its workers' culture to the success of Cooperative Home Care Associates (CHCA). It examines what the home healthaides bring to the culture of the company, how their contribution develops through their experience with the company, and how their heritage contributes to their CHCA work and to the company as an organization. This is one segment of a larger study that will deal with the background and history of CHCA, the vision of the founders and its implementation, the role of organizational policy, and the contribution of management philosophy to its accomplishment.

Richard Paul, Gloria Anzaluda, And Mestiza Consciousness: Shifting The Borders Of Critical Thinking, Margaret E. Cronin Sep 1997

Richard Paul, Gloria Anzaluda, And Mestiza Consciousness: Shifting The Borders Of Critical Thinking, Margaret E. Cronin

Critical and Creative Thinking Capstones Collection

In recent years, many theorists and practitioners in the field of critical and creative thinking have moved beyond a discrete skills understanding of critical and creative thinking to advocate a more holistic approach. This approach focuses on recognizing underlying assumptions, analyzing frames of reference, and fore grounding personal and social biases. Yet despite this much needed move toward contextualizing thinking and the thinker, there is little attention given to the role that power and identity difference play in the development and teaching of thinking. This thesis concerns itself with the issues of power, identity, and difference in thinking by comparing ...
