Overview

Here is a landmark publication in women's studies. Hidden Aspects of Women's Work is the culmination of years of research by the prestigious Women and Work Research Group. The book offers an unusually comprehensive discussion of women in the work force, covering both unpaid domestic work and paid labor the experiences of blue collar workers and professionals, and the ways the institutions affect them all. In addition to offering broad coverage of how women and men differ in work experience and job satisfaction, the book addresses the intersection between work and family life and the supermom syndrome, reports on sexual harassment with new findings that it is more deeply ingrained in the workplace than previously imagined, the impact technology has had on clerical jobs, and more. The contributors, representing a range of disciplines, have left no stone unturned in their search to understand the nature of women's work and how their status in the marketplace can be improved.
