Gender, Work and Space explores how social boundaries are constructed between women and men, and among women living in different places. Focusing on work, the segregation of men and women into different occupations, and variations in women's work experiences in different parts of the city, the authors argue that these differences are grounded, constituted in and through, space, place, and situated social networks.
The sheer range and depth of this extraordinary study throws new light on the construction of social, geographic, economic, and symbolic boundaries in ordinary lives.

The major contribution of this book is the discussion and analysis of simultaneous/lagged effects of the following contexts, spatial and aspatial, as well as supply and demand conditions, on women's work...the research makes an important contribution not only to the discipline of geography but to gender studies in general..
