Description - Gender and Work in Today's World by Nancy Sacks

Nancy Sacks and Catherine Marrone have collected the classic and current readings that reflect the changing realities of gender and work in modern society. Promoting gender equality through balanced analysis of the sexes, Gender and Work in Today's World: A Reader explores the experiences of both men and women in the work force. The editors present a well-balanced blend of academic articles on gender and work topics and provide students with brief but pedagogically useful introductions to each section in the text. Special sections include: gender-non-traditional jobs (i.e. men as nurses and women in the police force), non-traditional work structures (i.e. part-time, temporary, and odd-hour work), work over the life course, and sexual harassment.
