WORK.K66 1998
Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, Network Winter 1998/99: Women often work in tiring and repetitive jobs, at workstations designed for the "average" male body, and without the protection of a union. Plus, unpaid work at home often stops women from resting their hands after the paid work is done. These are among the reasons Penney Kome uses to explain why women suffer from musculoskeletal injuries (MSI) twice as often as men. Kome looks at the hidden policy agendas that face MSI patients and their caregivers.
