Professions and Patriarchy
This impressive and original study is one of the first books to combine mainstream sociology with feminism in exploring the subject of the professions and power.
This is an important addition to the corpus of feminist scholarship... It provides fresh insights into the way in which male power has been used to limit the employment aspirations of women in the middle classes. - Rosemary Crompton, University of Kent
