DescriptionReviewsContents

Is the position of women in the workplace changing? In addressing the broad range of issues raised by this question, Gender, Careers and Organisations engages in diverse contemporary debates about economic and organisational restructuring, human agency and strategy, embodiment and sexuality. Drawing on original empirical research into contemporary British banking, nursing and local government, the book both contributes to a reformulation of current debates and to the development of theoretical perspectives on gender, careers and organisations.
