About this Item

72 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.2in.This book provides an in-depth analysis of the constraints that women face when competing for leadership positions in academic trade unions. It examines several dimensions that influence access to leadership such as education, politics and culture. The author opines that men have always dominated decision-making in trade unionism. She therefore explains the burden women shoulder in vying for leadership positions in trade unions amid social, cultural and economic dynamics and challenges. Through quantitative and qualitative analyses, the author establishes that the position of women in trade union leadership is unfavourable. She recommends that trade unions should make deliberate efforts to improve the participation of women through affirmative action. This book is recommended for policy makers and development agencies seeking to minimize constraints faced by women and encourage their participation in trade union leadership. Students of gender and development studies will find it very useful. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
