Gender Inequality at Work
Jerry A. Jacobs, Ph.D.
This book addresses many of the dimensions of gender inequality at work, looking at a number of important topics including: pay equity; the impact of feminization on certain professions; and barriers to women's advancement in corporate hierarchies. These empirical studies include original surveys, secondary analyses of large data sets, historical studies, and ethnographic accounts. The importance of personal, family and structural factors in the gendering of the workplace are also considered.
