Abstract:

Admission of women to the service academies by Congress in 1976 constituted a mandated social change at the Air Force Academy. This social process was monitored over the four years of the first integrated class by a longitudinal study of beliefs, attitudes and expectations of the first women and their classmates. A carefully matched sample of men and women were tested concerning these issues, as were samples from preceding and following classes. The report portrays a comprehensive picture of the integration process with the associated problems and issues. Keywords Sex integration socialization attitudes toward women career expectations.
