Drawing comparisons from Turkey and Britain, countries which are at the margins of the European continent, Banking and Gender argues that most of the gendered inequalities in employment are socially constructed. Exploring the historical and social development of sex segregation and equality initiatives in both countries, it challenges biologically deterministic assumptions on "professions fit for women or men" which are still prevalent in employment practices in both countries. Banking and Gender is the first in-depth cross-cultural and empirical study of employment in the financial service and represents a genuinely innovative contribution to the theory and understanding of these fields.
