Description

This revised and rewritten edition of Women and Work provides an up-to-date analysis of the issue of workplace inequality.
Among the topics discussed are women's participation in the workplace, the continuing disparity in wages, the impact of new technologies, free trade and economic restructuring, and the involvement of women in the labour movement. The authors demonstrate how the restructured Canadian economy continues to short-change women.
Women and Work examines why, despite impressive advances, Canadian women remain behind the ghetto walls of "women's work".
