During the 1980s, there was a mounting interest in the relationship between gender divisions and organizational hierarchies. Much research in the area, however, has been narrowly focused around discrete issues such as sexuality, the gendered division of labour within organizations and feminist theories of the state. This volume provides an introduction to the entire range of historical and contemporary debates around gender and bureaucracy. Issues covered include gender and the development of modern bureaucracies; sexuality and organizations; male bonding and organizations; gender and organizational culture; feminist theories of the state; the efficacy of feminist intervention within bureaucratic structure; sex segregation within organizations; the relationship between gender, ethnicity and social class within organizations, and the relationship between organizational position and home and "personal" life. The book should be useful to students of the sociology of work and of gender, organizational studies and women's studies.
