Author: Harriet Bradley

Release Date: December 15, 1998
Using original material from interviews with female and male employees in five case-study organizations, this book explores how processes of gendering are played out in the sphere of employment. The author develops a new approach to power in terms of the range of resources which are used by women to challenge male domination and by men to resist women's encroachment. This approach is used to unpack the complexities of power relations of gender and class as they are played out in the everyday lives of working people.
