ABSTRACT
This article states that Kentucky laws limiting the number of working hours for women, ostensibly for reasons of health and safety, recognize biological and psychological differences between the sexes, and do not violate the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the Kentucky Attorney General has stated. Until the U. S. Supreme Court rules otherwise, such state protective laws will be considered genuine occupational qualifications necessary for the performance of jobs, the Attorney General explained. He cautioned, however, that the state laws are not to be used by employers as a legal weapon by which they may illegally discriminate.
