    "This fact sheet contains information on working women, the hazards they may face, and NIOSH research in areas of particular concern to women, including: musculoskeletal disorders; job stress; reproductive hazards; violence in the workplace; women in non-traditional employment; cancer; and hazards associated with the health care industry. Women currently comprise 46% of the 137 million workers in the United States, with their share of the labor force projected to reach 48% by 2008. In 1999, 75% (46 million) of employed women worked full-time, while 25% (16 million) worked part-time. In 1999, 3.7 million women held multiple jobs. Sixty percent of women age 16 and over were either employed or looking for work in 1999. Of employed women, 40% held technical, sales, and administrative support positions; 32% worked in managerial and professional specialities; and 17% worked in service occupations in 1999." - NIOSHTIC-2
