Abstract:

"This is one of the first collections of articles which brings together current theoretical and practical perspectives on gender relations in New Zealand public organisations. This book examines the notion of gender as a cultural construct as opposed to a biological imperative. It explores three basic issues: first, gender as a key concept in the analysis of organisational theory, practice and culture ; second, the impact of gender on women's options in the labour market ; and third, the potential of wmen's "difference of view" to contribute to growth and innovation in organisations. Suzann Olsson has drawn together a wide-ranging collection of penetrating and stimulating articles by women involved with these issues." -- Back cover.
