Five really interesting approaches to careers theory for women:

  1. Gottfredson’s Theory of Circumscription and Compromise
  2. Astin’s Need-Based Sociopsychological Model
  3. Career self-efficacy theory (Hackett and Betz)
  4. Feminist Careers Counselling (a philosophy rather than a theory)
  5. Farmer: Diversity and Women’s Career Development

All summarised on this great page
