The Section on the Clinical Psychology of Women (Section 4), 1980—
It is worth remembering that when clinical psychology began, women could not even vote in national elections in the United States (female suffrage was not achieved until 1920), and female schoolteachers who married had to quit their jobs. Most psychologists were male. At present, in contrast, women receive over half the doctoral degrees in psychology and if present trends continue will constitute a majority of the field (Strickland, 1987).
