This chapter, which examines the discontinuous shifts in female labor force participation during the late 1960s and early 1970s, focuses on shifts in women's career choices and argues that this transition was precipitated by the decline of employment opportunities in teaching. It brings together national educational statistics on teaching and the historical literature on women's push into the professions in the early 1970s, arguing that changing labor-market regimes in the teaching profession played an integral role in the opening of broader professional opportunities.

Keywords:   labor force, teaching, employment, labor-market regimes
