About this book

Gendered distinctions and differences in working life are produced by often hidden practices. What are they like? How do they work? The book creates, through its multidisciplinary approach and rich empirical data, a wide perspective on gendered practices in working life, from the level of labour market structures to the personal experiences of women and men. Some taken-for-granted assumptions of gender in social sciences and feminist research are challenged by a view through the 'Nordic window'.

Reviews

i'Why despite widely articulated policies of equality, does gender inequality persist in the world of waged work? How is it that in Finland, a supposed paradise for women, hierarchic divisions of gender still prevail? In this very important contribution, a group of Finnish researchers, working with a shared conceptual focus on gendered practices, investigates the reproduction of gender inequality across an impressive array of terrains and circumstances. This book provides greater evidence that the solutions of liberal feminism are not enough...it paves the way for conducting futher studies of gendering practices in other cultural contexts.' - Marta Calá and Linda Smirich, University of Massachusetts at Amherst

'I read Gendered Practices in Working Life with great admiration. This book is an excellent collection of essays about crossing boundaries and making connections...It is essential reading for all concerned with these questions.' - Jeff Hearn, University of Manchester
