Women and men at work
In this comprehensive overview of a growing domain of research, Reskin and Padavic examine how gender has shaped the meaning and performance of work. Patterns of sex inequality and segregation as well as the gendered nature of contemporary workplace cultures are demonstrated. The authors provide an especially useful - and critical - summary of economic theories of gender differences in workplace rewards, such as earnings and authority, as well as an insightful discussion of the interpenetration of family and work life.
