Excerpt from Women Professional Workers: A Study Made for the Women's Educational and Industrial Union
There has never been a time when it was so necessary for professional persons, men or women, young or old, novices or veterans, to ask themselves honestly and thoughtfully: Why do I call myself a professional worker? What am I doing to justify the title? The unprecedented demand for experts of many sorts during the war magnified the importance of the professions while at the same time it challenged many of their comfortable assumptions. Old professions have changed places in the scale of values; new professions have emerged and are emerging. The temper and methods and outlooks of all professions are undergoing profound alterations. For the first time they are beginning to consider seriously their relations to one another, to other groups of workers, and to the social order as a whole. Women in far greater numbers are looking to professional careers. The very term "professional" has acquired a widespread and easy popularity. To answer the first two others: Who, to-day, may justly be considered professional workers? What, to-day, may justly be considered professional occupations?
To get at the distinguished marks of the professional worker, it is the part of wisdom to look first at the historic "learned professions" of medicine, law, and divinity.
