By Elizabeth Kahling
This review gathers publications on the development of women's economic well being during the later half of the 20 th century, a time in which trade has increased substantially in the United States and the world. In the first part of this work, statistics and reports are used to examine trends in women's labor force participation, shift in occupations, and wages. The second half explores the development of U.S. trade and the possible impacts it may have on women's employment.
