by Lory Manning, Brigid O'Farrell, Anne J. Stone, and Vanessa R. Wight (2001)
In recent years, most of the research done on women veterans has concentrated on health, health needs, and the adequacy of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health services. While there is a growing body of research on active-duty women, very little has been done on the effects of military service on women veterans civilian employment prospects. The adequacy of the Transition Assistance Program (TAP) and related veterans initiatives for equipping women to find employment in the civilian arenaespecially employment that allows them to build on the skills they acquired in servicehas not been the subject of study by scholars or government officials.
This 78-page report asseseswith particular attention to differences by racethe available data and literature in five areas relevant to women veterans employment: the effectiveness of veterans employment programs; employment and unemployment status; nontraditional employment; earning and socioeconomic status; and veterans preference.
