Gender and Home-Based Employment

Synopsis

Gender often influences the type of occupation that individuals choose, as well as the way they work and the outcomes of that work. Home-based employment is no different. The proximity of these workers to their families' living activities provides a unique opportunity to study the effects of work-at-home on family interaction and the role that gender plays in this traditionally female-dominated situation.
