For many years women were not considered employable in professional fields. Time has changed this. The profession of accounting has offered many employment openings and new job opportunities for both men and women* Unfortunately, few women feel the urge to enter the accounting fields of work, since they maintain and believe that they are an "unwanted lot" in the accounting profession. There are many women who have proved themselves very worthy and very successful in the profession. . . . There are many technical or junior executive accounting jobs available for those women who cannot meet the strain of travel in public accounting; nevertheless, many leading firms are finding professional women very satisfactory in supervisory capacities. ... With good basic training, our professional women can contribute much to the accounting profession. (Carr, William Giles, "Careers in Professional Accounting," Monograph C-4.
