About this product
- DescriptionThis book integrates and critically evaluates the diverse literature on the impact of techlogical change on women's work. It also develops a new conceptual paradigm and presents evidence of the impact of techlogical change on occupational sex segregation. The analysis is based on the premise that the choice of a particular methodological and epistemological paradigm has important implications for the study of women and techlogy. This premise leads to a careful consideration of the philosophical foundations of three methodological perspectives that have been used to examine techlogical change--neoclassical ecomics, institutional ecomics, and feminist methodology. Burnell's study assesses the contributions and limitations of each approach.
