Women in SAF--Survey Results and Analyses
Abstract:A 1979 nationwide sample survey of members of the Society of American Foresters (SAF) found few differences between male and female foresters with regard to education, salaries, career aspirations, geographic locations, employment sectors, or job satisfaction. A higher percentage of females, however, were unemployed. Those who were employed supervised fewer employees and indicated more job discrimination than males. Female respondents were more likely to be single or married with no children.
