Caring Work: ‘You Can’t Make Friends with a Car’

  • Cynthia Cockburn
Part of the Youth Questions book series


Accounts of women’s attempts to get a foothold in masculine occupations, their successes and failures, the rewards and disincentives, are now no longer a rarity. The foregoing chapters have added a few more to the genre. We have explored the problems of young women in relation to administration and management, in relation to male craft occupations and in relation to new technology. In passing, we have glimpsed a very few young men moving in the opposite direction, mainly into typing and office skills.
