At a time when some corporate women leaders are advocating for their aspiring sisters to ‘lean in’ for a bigger piece of the existing pie, this book puts the spotlight on the deep structures of organizational culture that hold gender inequality in place. Gender at Work: Theory and Practice for 21st Century Organizations makes a compelling case that transforming the unspoken, informal institutional norms that perpetuate gender inequality in organizations is key to achieving gender equitable outcomes for all. The book is based on the authors’ interviews with 30 leaders who broke new ground on gender equality in organizations, international case studies crafted from consultations and organizational evaluations, and lessons from nearly fifteen years of experience of Gender at Work, a learning collaborative of 30 gender equality experts. From the Dalit women’s groups in India who fought structural discrimination in the largest ‘right to work’ program in the world, to the intrepid activists who challenged the powerful members of the UN Security Council to define mass rape as a tactic of war, the trajectories and analysis in this book will inspire readers to understand and chip away at the deep structures of gender discrimination in organizational policies, practices and outcomes. Designed for practitioners, policy makers, donors, students and researchers looking at gender, development and organizational change, this book offers readers a widely tested tool of analysis – the Gender at Work Analytical Framework – to assess the often invisible structures of gender bias in organizations and to map desired strategies and change processes.

A cross-cultural study of gender differentiation in employment, this book holds controversial implications for future research in the field. In an analysis of 12 industrial countries, Patricia Roos isolates the effects of gender, family background, education, and marital status, among other variables, on the types of jobs that men and women hold and on their occupational mobility. The consistency of the results suggests historical, cultural, and political traditions of a country have little impact on the kinds of jobs that women and men have. Rather, patterns of occupational sex segregation reflect structural features common to all modern industrial societies. This book is a milestone in the research on sex and marital differences in employment, occupational distribution, and earnings.

Gender, Work and Space explores how social boundaries are constructed between women and men, and among women living in different places. Focusing on work, the segregation of men and women into different occupations, and variations in women's work experiences in different parts of the city, the authors argue that these differences are grounded, constituted in and through, space, place, and situated social networks. The sheer range and depth of this extraordinary study throws new light on the construction of social, geographic, economic, and symbolic boundaries in ordinary lives.

Three themes are drawn together in this book: gender and sexuality, the organisation of work, and the impact of technological change. Their inter-relationship is explored in six area studies: manufacturing, banking, retailing, computing, nursing and housework. Gender at Work presents an account of how each area has changed since the Second World War; sets out ways in which the notion of what constitutes 'proper' work for men and women changes with new work processes; and analyses the prospects for, and limits of, sexual 'equality' in the workplace. Based on the first-hand observations of workers, reflecting on their work experience, this book allows workers to speak for themselves: they reveal the centrality of gender to the way capitalism is organised. 'A notable contribution, both to feminist and labour studies in Australia and further afield... Every woman, whether at home or in the paid workforce, should read this book. It will help her assess exactly what she is - and should be - worth to the community, and how she can help to ensure her true evaluation.' - Newcastle Herald 'A very readable book which makes a major theoretical and descriptive contribution to the analysis of gender in Australian Society.' - Journal of Industrial Relations 'A convincing demonstration of the central place of gender in the work relationships between men and women. The insights it provides, into the underlying causes of the sex division of tasks and the way in which new jobs in any individual setting quickly become sex-typed, are important for any manager of a mixed workplace.' - Practising Manager

In this book, Lehman compares the ministry styles of women and men focussing on clergy of Protestant Congregations (ministers, clerics, preachers, and parsons). He offers strong statistical support for the trend toward increasing numbers of women in clerical roles. His book is the first to make direct comparisons between men and women on several dimensions of ministry style (using a national sample): interpersonal style, theology, career goals, thought forms, power and authority, and ethics.

The changing nature of waged work in contemporary advanced industrial nations is one of the most significant aspects of political and economic debate. It is also the subject of intense debate among observers of gender. Capital Culture explores these changes focusing particularly on the gender relations between the men and women who work in the financial services sector. The multiple ways in which masculinities and femininities are constructed is revealed through the analysis of interviews with dealers, traders, analysts and corporate financiers. Drawing on a range of disciplinary approaches, the various ways in which gender segregation is established and maintained is explored. In fascinating detail, the everyday experiences of men and women working in a range of jobs and in different spaces, from the dealing rooms to the boardrooms, are examined. This volume is unique in focusing on men as well as women, showing that for men too there are multiple ways of doing gender at work.
