The text also examines office cultures, and societal perceptions of female office workers and working women at large. This book is intended for for development workers, policy-makers, consultants, sociologists, sconomists, and anthropologists. It is also intended for scholars and graduate and post-graduate students of social sciences and gender studies.

Jasmin Mirza is at Social and Economic Enhancement Research Pvt. Ltd., Lahore.Review:
This book is a fitting recognition of the tremendous odds against which women continue to go through life/work, creating spaces, inventing strategies and constantly renegotiating their status. The Book Review, New Delhi Mirza brings out with great sensitivity seemingly unimportant issues that hamper women's participation and growth in the formal labour market ... Rich in detail and told well, Mirza's debut effort is both informative and insightful. The Book Review, New Delhi
