This title was first published in 2002. Aiming to contribute to feminist theory in the area of paid employment, this volume demonstrates how the meanings attached to gender can form part of the explanation for the persistence of gender segregation at work. The author applies the Foucaultian concept of discourse to occupational segregation to offer a new approach to the study of gender segregation. An analysis is provided of gender in relation to computer programming.
