This book represents ten years of data collection and analysis on the topic of women managers, using an evolving feminist framework which urges that we consider the dimensions of race, class, and gender simultaneously. The author examines the interplay of class issues (worker participation) with gender issues (women managers), pulling together literatures that are usually seen as separate. The interplay of race is also discussed.
