Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides a general overview of barriers to women's advancement in organizations, especially those subtle barriers created by unconscious bias in evaluating women's work and misunderstanding differences in the communication and managerial styles of men and women. The book is based on the fact that women and men face two different work worlds- even if their organizational positions are identical- because the basis for evaluating and understanding women's and men's work is different. Separate sections deal with gender expectations and sex-role differences, fostering an understanding of how and why these different expectations occur and their organizational implications; communication and how differences are carried out and reinforced in organizations; and common organizational problems faced by women. Based on social science research, this book provides a better understanding of how gender influences organizational behavior.

Book News Annotation:

Interprets relevant scientific research findings in light of practical experience as they apply to women in the contemporary work world. These findings are presented in four sections. The first deals with the working world as it currently exists, the second with social stereotypes about women and how they affect women in organizations. The third section presents an overview of communication and power in organizations, and the final section presents a series of case studies on critical organizational issues confronting women. For educated men and women in organizations and for college students in relevant courses. Paper edition (unseen), $29.50.
