  • Lynn Ashburner
Part of the Women in Society book series


An understanding of the position of women employees in the finance sector is of significance not just for those women themselve! but for the wider consideration of how changing patterns of worl are affecting women. As an expanding and successful part of th(economy, the finance sector has had to develop new and flexible systems to deal with the ever changing environment. It is, as consequence, at the forefront in the development and use of new technology. Banks and building societies spend three times as mud and insurance companies twice as much on new technology than an) other industry, when expenditure is taken as a percentage o. turnover (Financial Times, 19 December 1986). With new technology comes new work patterns, new types of work and the possibility of new opportunities for women.
