Milton, M. (1996). Where are the women? A report into issues related to women's access to workplace literacy programs. Perth, Australia: Edith Cowan University.

Abstract

This study sought to investigate the provision of workplace literacy courses available for women in female dominated industries, and women's access to and participation in those courses. Further, it was intended to interview women who had dropped out or not accessed available courses.

Prior to discussing the study, it seems appropriate to locate it within the current economic, social and political climate of the Australian workplace, with a particular focus on the increasing demand for literacy skills.
