O'Connor Duffy (higher education administration, Suffolk U., Boston) finds that the expectations of working class women at Radcliffe in the middle of the twentieth century became sharply divided by outside forces, including the rise of feminism and other social movements, attitudes toward class divisions inside and outside the collegiate sphere, perceptions of the role of an elite women's college in changing times, and job opportunities for working class women. O'Connor Duffy uses a variety of primary sources to show how upward mobility was possible with a Radcliffe degree, but that satisfaction with progress and opportunities strongly depended on a variety of internal and external factors.
