Sex segregation and inequality in the modern labour market

Jude Browne

This book presents a novel interpretation of the nature, causes and consequences of sex inequality in the modern labour market. Employing a sophisticated new theoretical framework, and drawing on original fieldwork, the book develops a subtle account of the phenomenon of sex segregation and offers a major challenge to existing approaches. "Sex Segregation and Inequality in the Modern Labour Market": offers an unusually comprehensive account of sex segregation; draws on the latest methodological innovations to provide an original empirical analysis of sex segregation using both quantitative and qualitative approaches; critically engages the major explanatory theories of sex segregation; and, provides a provocative challenge to the goals and direction of current social policy. In an environment increasingly defined by attempts to converge and consolidate international policy objectives, an in-depth understanding of contemporary forms of inequality is vital to anyone interested in the effective translation of normative accounts of social justice into practical policy. Aimed at academics and advanced students working in social policy, sociology and political science, as well as policy makers, this book makes an important contribution to knowledge and debate in the field.
