This report, prepared by the Committee's Panel on Technology and Women's Employment, identifies and analyzes the effects of technological change on the quantity and quality of women's paid employment. Chapter 1 defines technological change, describes changes in information technologies, discusses the measurement and characteristics of technological change, and explores the economic and social context of technological change and possible employment effects. It describes women's employment situations and explains why differential effects are expected for women workers. Chapter 2 discusses selected examples of technological change in communications and information processing and considers especially its effects on women's employment levels and on the content and quality of work. Chapter 3 analyzes the current and future effects of technological change on the levels of employment and the structure of occupations and considers changes in worker supply and demand. It reviews Bureau of Labor Statistics projections, presents estimates of the most plausible worst case, and examines recent and projected shifts in the demand for various occupations. Chapter 4 analyzes the current and likely future effects of technological change on employment quality and explores the roles of managers and workers in implementing new technologies and improving employment quality. Chapter 5 offers recommendations to facilitate the mutual adaptation of technology and employment. The monograph contains a 258-item list of references and concludes with biographical sketches of dance members and staff and an index. (YLB)
