Gender and Choice in Education and Occupation


Gender and Choice in Education and Occupation challenges the myth of androgynous work and presents cutting-edge research on "brainsex" and its effects on personality, education and choice. It examines intra-sex differences as well as male-female differences and similarities, and targets job attributes, work flexibility, long term life planning, home-work conflict, prestige versus occupational interest, and intrinsic motivational mechanisms to explain the relative failure of intervention policies to date.
