About this product
- DescriptionWho are the women who became engineers in the 1970s and 1980s? How have they fared in the most male-dominated profession in America? This is the first book to answer these questions. It explores the backgrounds, family lives, work experiences, and attitudes of engineers in order to explain the unequal patterns of career development for women, who generally hold lower positions and receive fewer promotions than their male counterparts. McIlwee and Robinson synthesize two theoretical approaches frequently used to explain the status of women in the workforce-gender role and structural theories-providing new insights into improving women's careers in traditionally male occupations.
- Author BiographyJudith S. McIlwee is Lecturer in the Department of Sociology at the University of San Diego. J. Gregg Robinson is Associate Professor at Grossmont College, El Cajon, California.
