A booklet called “If I Go to University” was published by the Canadian Department of Labour Women’s Bureau in 1966. It provided young women with “realistic career planning” advice. It helped them weigh the pros and cons of attending university.
In Francine’s case, her father “admits that Francine’s desire to attend university makes him somewhat uneasy. He does not disapprove, but silently wonders if educating a girl is worth the financial sacrifice; especially as it is quite likely that she may decide to marry and never use her education.”
