Summary and Info
Despite improvements, women remain concentrated in particular occupational sectors and roles. Are current patterns a function of external limitations on initial ambitions, or do women simply prefer distinct types of work? There is a wealth of literature relating to gendered occupational segregation, but comparatively little accounting for how work choices are made from the individual's perspective. Including case studies of firefighting and teaching, this book offers a qualitative exploration of girls and women's reported journeys toward their work choices.
