Overview

A comprehensive discussion of the issues faced by career women - from their viewpoint rather than that of the researchers is offered in this volume.

The book uses both qualitative and quantitative techniques to find out what working women are really thinking about and experiencing, focusing on issues such as: sex discrimination; salary discrimination; child care; dual-career problems; maternity; and substance abuse.

The result is a stimulating book with the positive message that despite many obstacles, women can succeed in the workplace provided getting things done takes precedence over the 'poor little me' syndrome.
