About this book


Information about women's occupational mobility is required to resolve issues about women's role in class analysis, about theories of the operation of labour markets, and for understanding changes in the industrial structure. This book addresses the questions of how women move between jobs over their lifetime, how much downward occupational mobility they experience, and how many recover their status after downward moves. Results of exciting new data are integrated with current theoretical problems to make this book widely relevant to academics, policy makers and women's groups.
