The experience of women at work is very different from that of men, and this book examines that experience from a psychological and organizational perspective. It is divided into three main sections: the first presents underlying gender issues at work; the second considers problems faced by women at work simply because they are female; and the third considers the implications of these in relation to specific occupations. Each of the contributors is concerned with the practical implications of research findings, and with proposing changes in individual and organizational behaviour to improve the experiences of women at work.
