Re-Gendering Of The Workforce: Women And Men In “Non-Traditional” Occupations And Industries

Robert Didham

Abstract


Many occupations and industries have traditionally remained the preserve of either men or women. In recent years, a range of campaigns and policies have focussed on equity for women and equality of opportunity for both men and women in the work force. This paper looks at some of the background, ongoing discrimination and the forces acting for and against gender balance which has brought about some re-gendering of occupations.
