Gender and the Public Sector by Jim Barry
Book DescriptionDrawing on sociology and social policy, this intriguing volume considers various aspects of gender and professional identity. Contributors explore the inter-relationship between managerialism, professionalism and gender identity in Britain, and examine the processes and impacts of change on those working in public sector organizations in other countries as they come under varying managerial pressures. The subject is viewed from a variety of perspectives, including feminism and post-modernism. With an international range of contributors, this important book brings together an array of ideas about gender and professionals and provides an important contribution to the growing debates on gender and the workplace. A significant volume for both postgraduates and professionals in the fields of management and business studies, Gender and the Public Sector provides a more sophisticated analysis of international public sector change than is currently available elsewhere.
