Drawing on the historical changes in five areas - the jobs of telephone operators, workers in the printing and publishing industries, information and data processors, retail clerks, and nurses - this volume offers a comprehensive examination of how microelectronics and telecommunications have affected women's work and their working environments and looks ahead to what can be expected for women workers in the next decade. It also offers perspectives on how workers can more easily adapt to the changing workplace and addresses the controversial topic of job insecurity as a result of an influx of advanced electronic systems.
