The purpose of this 1979 study was to investigate the experiences of women working in traditionally male blue collar jobs. Through interviews with female and male workers and supervisors, as well as examination of company employment records, the researchers attempted to assess the following: (1) whether the affirmative action consent decrees had a noticeable effect on the hiring patterns for women in the steel industry; (2) whether there are any specific costs associated with the increased effort to hire women in the industry; (3) how male workers felt about the influx of women into their traditionally male domain; and (4) what problems women encounter as they begin to work in the industry. Two plants within the steel industry were selected as the sampling sites.
