Workplace/Women's Place

Third Edition

Edited by Paula Dubeck and Dana Dunn

This third edition of Workplace/Women's Place probes the continuing challenges that women face as they enter and participate in the world of work. New articles illuminate factors that influence women's preparation for work and the occupations they choose. The articles also demonstrate the challenges women encounter in the workplace and in seeking to balance the demands of work and family life. Work experiences of diverse groups of women highlight both their unique experiences and the similarity of experiences that cross-cut racial and ethnic identity. In addition, this anthology provides an examination and assessment of a number of policies that have developed as a response to the changing labor force participation of women over the past three decades.
