Excerpt from The Canadian Girl at Work: A Book of Vocational Guidance
The life of the average woman is divided, gener ally, into two periods of work, that of paid employ ment and that of home-making. No adequate scheme of training for girls can fail to take account of this fact. They should be equipped with knowledge and skill for home-making, and assisted in making the best use of their years in paid work. Happily, it appears from an investigation of the conditions affecting girls as wage-earners that the knowledge which helps them to be good home-makers is usees sary to their well-being in paid employment. Tech nical training and skill are not more helpful to a girl at work than specialized knowledge in matters of food, clothing, health, and daily regimen. Lack of training in home-making is probably the greatest drawback which a girl in paid employment can have. Her business during her first years of paid employ ment may not require much skill or experience, but her living conditions require all the specialized woman's knowledge that training can give her.
To bring about in the life of a girl a satisfactory connection between paid employment and home making, and to show the home employments in their rightful place as occupations of the first importance, are necessary objectives in any book of this character.
