Women's Career Development by Barbara A. Gutek

The subject of women's career development is becoming increasingly important as the proportion of women in the US work-force approaches 50%. Women behave differently from men in the development of their careers, and are often studied to see how they depart from the male standard. The papers in this volume examine the internal dynamics to women's careers using theories about reference groups, relative deprivation, personality, and role conflict. The book analyses women's career development from different perspectives, examining different groups of women, at different points of time in their career process, in relation to men as well as to other groups of women.
