Shaping Women's Work : Gender, Employment and Information Technology, Paperback / softback Book

Shaping Women's Work : Gender, Employment and Information Technology Paperback / softback

Part of the Longman Sociology Series series

Description

A new book offering a broad overview of the debates about technologies and gender relations at work in a range of occupational areas.

Innovative in its approach it deals with gender relations in terms of the ways in which they influence the design and development of technologies, and how gender relations are themselves shaped by technologies.

The book will draw heavily on the theoretical perspective looking at the ways in which sexual divisions of labour and gender relations in the workplace profoundly affect the direction and pace of technological change, and tracks the development of certain technologies showing how, through their evolution, they embody these social relations.
