One great remaining question in the empowerment theory is whether equal employment opportunity (E.E.O.) and affirmative action efforts have been effective and whether the employment status of protected groups (including African-American single women) has improved as a result of such efforts. This paper examines the E.E.O. Legislation, the actual results of that legislation and discusses the issues relative to whether or not it is helpful to African-American women.

From the Paper:

"Regarding African American women specifically, Beller shows a marked improvement in the job status of black women relative to that of white women and men between 1965 and 1981. Even though many of these gains are attributed to the growth and sophistication of EEO legislation, (Auster & Drazin, 1988), in recent years it has been argued that EEO - AA legislation's greatest effect has been "the proliferation of administrative structures rather than the progress of protected groups" (p. 217) The development of formalized human resource management (HRM) structures among employing organizations is the focus of a growing body of research."
