9780761951513: Challenging Women: Gender, Culture and Organization

This book offers a radical reassessment of organizational forces for change and barriers encountered by the `challenging women′ - senior women managers faced with the task of transforming their organizations. Much has been written about women at work, the `glass ceiling′ and discriminatory employment practices. This study is seminal in the linkage it makes between gender, innovation and organizational transformation. The book highlights the implications of this for all types of organizations and women managers everywhere.

About the Author:

Su Maddock is Senior Research Fellow at Manchester Business School. She has worked as an organizational design consultant in the public sector.

Review:

`Su Maddock is an eloquent writer, and not only is this book full of interesting material, it is also a pleasure to read. It should be complusory reading for all those interested in the subtitles of women′s ongoing oppression and what Challenging Women are doing to resist it′ - Sociological Research Online

`The book provides convincing evidence of how challenging-women managers are extremely innovative and should be in demand within organisations.′ - The British Journal of Healthcare, Computing & Information Management

`Organisational culture is now generally acknowledged by academics and practitioners alike to be an important obstacle in the paths of women managers in organisations, and this book is a welcome addition to the recent publications which have focused on the topic. The strength of the author′s work comes from her experience as a change consultant in the public sector and her understanding of the complex organisations in which her sample of women managers work... It is refreshing and positice to see the idea of women as challenging innovators promoted, although by linking their transformative capabilities with their gender it is harder to separate out whether they are marginalised because their ideas are a threat or because they are women′ - Work, Employment & Society

"The book provides a fascinating profile of the public sector, the recent structural changes and the difficulties faced by women managers because of the intransigence of a male culture. It is of interest to academics, human resources personnel, and consultants alike." 

(Sarah Rutherford)
