addition to providing a very basic overview of the Occupational Safety
and Health Act (1970), this course will focus on issues of particular
concern to women working outside of the home.  Topics will include
patterns of employment, dual responsibilities of home and work,
psycho-social working conditions, occupational stress, violence at
work, and reproductive hazards.
