Women in "Men's" Work: An Issue of Identity.
Gleeson, Paul
Journal of Vocational Education and Training: The Vocational Aspect of Education, v48 n3 p261-76 1996
Studies of gender identity and activity preferences in young children and of the characteristics of work culture in traditional male trades are used to support the argument that women seeking nontraditional employment are faced with a work identity based on a traditional concept of masculinity. Reconstructing work cultures to ensure equal access for both men and women is necessary. (SK)
