Gender at Work The Dynamics of Job Segregation by Sex during World War II

by Ruth Milkman

Part of the Working Class in American History Series

Gender at Work The Dynamics of Job Segregation by Sex during World War II Synopsis

By analyzing the process of work in both the electrical and the automobile industries, the supplies of male and female labor available to each, the varying degrees of labor-intensive work, the proportion of labor costs to total costs, and the extent of male resistance to female entry into the industry before, during, and after the war, Milkman offers a historically grounded and detailed examination of the evolution, function, and reproduction of job segregation by sex. -- Journal of American History Analytic sophistication is coupled with a powerfully rendered narrative: the reader strides briskly along, enjoying one provocative insight after another while simultaneously absorbed by the drama of the events. -- Women's Review of Books
