Energy Resource Development: Implications for Women and Minorities in the Intermountain West.
Commission on Civil Rights, Washington, DC.
A selection of papers presented at a consultation sponsored by the Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming Advisory Committees to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights address the inequities of benefits received by women and minorities from resource development activities in the Intermountain West. The introduction discusses the impact of resource development on women and minorities. The next section, on boomtowns, contains five papers addressing women and minorities, human services, and social/psychological problems inherent in communities experiencing rapid growth. Section 3 provides three papers dealing with the economic position of women and their employment opportunities in energy development, women working with energy, and effects of energy development on rural women. The fourth section includes seven papers detailing energy development and the disadvantages, i.e., the effects on Blacks, Hispanics, women, and other disadvantaged. Section 5 provides four papers covering Indian reservation resources, such as coal and water, and conservation practices. Three papers on economic opportunities for Indians and other minorities in energy-related businesses conclude the document. (AH)
