The opening chapters are a consideration of the history of the employment of women in industry and the factors and motivating forces which have brought about an increase. The remainder of the book is a tedious discussion of the physiologic, physical, mental and emotional differences of men and women as they affect their working capacity. Whereas the title indicates that the book might be of value to the employer or supervisor of women, it actually falls far short of giving practical suggestions or methods outside of making women comfortable at work.
