Editor's note: The number of women in pharmacy began exploding during the second wave of feminism, a period recognized as beginning with publication of The Feminine Mystique in 1963. By the end of the decade, pharmacy researchers began turning their attention to perceptions around women in the workforce and realities as they played out in pharmacies across the country. This article was the first of many that appeared in the pages of JAPhA over the next 2 decades. The research would prove incorrect many assumptions of the 1960s regarding the practice continuity and longevity of women pharmacists. This article accompanies the Viewpoint by Dr. Mary Anne Koda-Kimble on page 579.
