This study aimed to explore how 86 youths of both sexes and of different
social classes and levels of education who were attending courses
considered as traditionally feminine or masculine made their choices and
traced their career plans. Adopting a feminist social constructionist
perspective and the discourse analysis as a methodology, there were
observed the emergence of oppressive discourses regulated by the norms
of gender and social class, strengthening the conviction that these
conditions play a key role in the career development of the
participants. These issues seem to justify the development of a social
justice agenda in Vocational Psychology.
