||Questionnaire surveys regarding the work environment, quality of life and health were carried out among 47 women working in the Swedish motor vehicle industry; two assessments were made with 4 to 9 years in between. Changes in work-role quality and in quality of life were associated with changes in somatic disorders and psychological distress. Based on in-depth interviews with four women, a theoretical model was developed to illustrate the effects on women's health of the surrounding organization and culture and the kind of leadership practised.
