Data from 75 southwestern cities are used to explore demographic and political correlates of female employment by local governments. While this employment is higher in cities of higher median income, few other factors predict overall female employment or females in professional, managerial, or clerical jobs. Employment of black and Hispanic women is strongly positively related to their population proportions. Female council representation is positively related only to employment of black women.
