The purpose of this paper is to present information about females and their relationships with machines and to report female reactions to the machine component in the relationship. Since human factors engineering has focused largely on the male operator in the man-machine system, information concerned with female-machine relationships is derived mainly from studies of males. Several studies of females at work and a recent survey examine the role of the contemporary female as a machine user and record her reactions to this role.
