Women in Top Jobs : Four Studies in Achievement, Hardback Book


How far is there a `feminine' style of managerial and professional work?

Have employers taken account of the different timetable governing the life of a woman as compared to that of a man, and the implications of this if women are to have the training, promotion and job security needed to reach the top?

This book, first published in 1971, considers women as company directors; examines the position of women managers in two large firms; analyses how they fare in senior posts in the BBC and in the Civil Service.

The four studies together contain a mass of information on women's education and the reasons why they reach the top - or fail to get there.
