    schema:description "This book bridges a crucial gap in the literature on gender and organizational culture by providing an historical account of how discriminatory practices develop, are maintained but also change over time. Studies of management and organizations rarely concern themselves with issues of gender, except in the most superficial manner. The 'neglect' of gender within management and organization studies has given rise to a growing number of feminist critiques, as yet however there is little work which seeks to explain how discriminatory practices develop, are sustained, and change in organizations over time. This book documents and explains the gendering of three particular organisations - British Airways, Air Canada and Pan American Airways. Drawing on in-depth interviews and extensive archival material, the author presents a historical account of the way specific discriminatory practices developed and changed over the life of three airline companies - British Airways, Air Canada and Pan American Airways. The book covers the period 1919 to 1991 and is organized around key periods in the hiring and treatment of female employees but the focus is on gender in the broadest sense of the word (looking at the social construction of male and female sexuality; heterosexuality and homosexuality). Gender is explored through analysis of organizational symbolism, workplace practices and organizational structuring. As a history of discriminatory practices the book is unique in the field of business and corporate history."@en ;
