Women and the Economy: A Bibliography and Review of the Literature on Sex Differentiation in the Labor Market.
Kohen, Andrew I.; And Others
The booklet presents (1) a bibliography of approximately 660 references to literature about sex discrimination in the labor market and (2) an expository review of recent research about male/female differences in earnings and occupational assignments. The bibliography is divided into 12 content categories. These include earnings of women workers, occupations of women workers (professional, clerical, blue collar, and service), unemployment among women, unionism, attitudes of and toward working women, and home production and child care. Most of the entries were published in the 1960s or 1970s. Information is given on author, title, source or publisher, date, and length. The second part of the document describes findings of theoretical and empirical research studies about sex differences in earnings and occupations. Occupational differentiation appears to be an important source of the male/female earnings disparity. However, it is not clear to what extent the differentiation is produced by labor market discrimination or by sex role discrimination in the home and schools. Tables illustrating the research statistics are included. (Author/AV)
