Women and Work Hardback
by Ross Davies
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Women and Business series
In this book, first published in 1975, the author examines the role of women in the workforce.
Despite representing a rapidly increasing section of the workforce, why are women still overwhelmingly confined to unskilled jobs?
Why do they hold such a tiny proportion of managerial and professional posts?
In answering these vital questions Ross Davies shows how women's economic roles in pre-industrial society were modified and distorted by industrialisation; how this legacy of exploitation has affected contemporary attitudes among both men and women; and how the present situation should be seen and assessed in its proper perspective.
