HIS bibliography covers the period, July 1943 to June 1948,

and includes references to occupations in which women pre­
dominate, according to the latest census figures, as well as publica­
tions with specific discussions of women’s work in occupations
where they form a minority. While the literature in the field for
the period was examined as fully as was possible with the re­
search facilities available, the bibliography is selective. It con­
tains references only to books, pamphlets, and periodicals issued
in the United States. It excludes publications dealing specifically
with women’s war production work in the latter years of World
War II and with discussions of the changes that occurred during
the first period after the termination of the war. Publications are
also excluded which describe courses of instruction and discuss
problems of analysis of occcupations, such as those developed as
a basis for curriculums in vocational schools.
All references to each occupation described in any of the pub­
lications reviewed will be found listed under the name of that
occupation in the Occupational Information Index, pages 89 to
100. References to other subjects pertaining to vocations for
women and girls have been grouped under various headings in
the Subject Index, pages 101 to 102.
Many of the publications listed are available in school libraries
and in city libraries. Usually the Extension Division of the State
Library can supply books and periodicals to which references are
made when they are not locally available. Many of the pamphlets
reviewed are free or can be obtained at small cost from the
