Banking and Gender: Sex Equality in the Financial Services in Britain and Turkey
Drawing comparisons from Turkey and Britain, countries which are at the margins of the European continent, 'Banking and Gender' argues that most of the gendered inequalities in employment are socially constructed. Exploring the historical and social development of sex segregation and equality initiatives in both countries, it challenges biologically deterministic assumptions on 'professions fit for women or men' which are still prevalent in employment practices in both countries. 'Banking and Gender' is the first in-depth cross-cultural and empirical study of employment in the financial service and represents a genuinely innovative contribution to the theory and understanding of these fields. It is also, of course, a directed call towards equality of opportunity in the work-place..

The Chicago School: How the University of Chicago Assembled the Thinkers Who Revolutionized Economics and Business
Alandmark: the first book to provide an in-depth history of the Chicago School of Economics, which sprang from the economics departments at the University of Chicago and its business school in the mid-twentieth century and went on to revolutionize how we think about economics and business.When Richard Nixon said We are all Keynesians now in 1971, few could have predicted that the next three decades would have resulted in a complete transformation of the global economic landscape. This transformation was led chiefly by a small but potently influential circle of thinkers teaching or trained in Chicago's departments of economics and political science and its business schoolmany of whom had worked in relative obscurity for decades.These thinkersincluding Milton Friedman, Gary Becker, George Stigler, Robert Lucas, and othersrevolutionized economic orthodoxy in the second half of the twentieth century, utterly dominated the Nobel Prizes awarded in economics, and changed how business is done around the world.Written by a leading European economic thinker with his own long ties to the University of Chicago, The Chicago School is the first in-depth look at how this remarkable group of thinkers came together, and how their influence and importance grew around the world.

Silicon Valley, Women, and the California Dream: Gender, Class, and Opportunity in the Twentieth Century
What accounts for the growing income inequalities in Silicon Valley, despite huge technological and economic strides? Why have the once-powerful labor unions declined in their influence? How are increasing waves of immigration and ethnic diversity changing the workplace in the Valley? Silicon Valley, Women, and the California Dream examines these questions from a fresh perspective: that provided by the history of women in Silicon Valley in the twentieth century. Silicon Valley is internationally renowned. It is less well known, however, that the Valley once contained the world's largest concentration of fruit-processing plants, set in a sea of fruit orchards. Despite the many differences between the fruit and electronics industries, one important thread connects them: the production workers have been preponderantly immigrant women. (In the early part of the twentieth century, the newcomers came primarily from southern Europe; in the latter part of the century, they came mostly from Asia and Latin America, especially Mexico.) The author examines both industries, both work forces, and the changing nature of the local power structure. Although she documents the many sources of vitality and ferment that have undergirded the region's economic might, she also demonstrates that its wealth has not been equally distributed.

Work-Lifestyle Choices in the 21st Century: Preference Theory
In this book, Hakim presents a new, multi-disciplinary theory for explaining and predicting current and future patterns of women's choice between employment and family work. Preference theory is the first theory developed specifically to explain women's behaviour and choices. As such, it constitutes a major break from male-centred theorizing to date in sociology and economics. Preference theory is grounded on the substantial body of new research on women's work and fertility that has flourished within feminist scholarship. It identifies five major historical changes that collectively are producing a qualitatively new scenario for women in prosperous societies in the 21st century. Throughout the analysis, the USA and Britain illustrate what the new scenario means for women, how it alters their preferences and work-lifestyles choices. Hakim also reviews research evidence on contemporary developments across Europe, Canada, Australia, Japan, and the far East to develop a new theory that is genuine international in perspective.

Wall Street Women
Wall Street Women tells the story of the first generation of women to establish themselves as professionals on Wall Street. Since these women, who began their careers in the 1960s, faced blatant discrimination and barriers to advancement, they created formal and informal associations to bolster one another's careers. In this important historical ethnography, Melissa S. Fisher draws on fieldwork, archival research, and extensive interviews with a very successful cohort of first-generation Wall Street women. She describes their professional and political associations, most notably the Financial Women's Association of New York City and the Women's Campaign Fund, a bipartisan group formed to promote the election of pro-choice women. Fisher charts the evolution of the women's careers, the growth of their political and economic clout, changes in their perspectives and the cultural climate on Wall Street, and their experiences of the 2008 financial collapse. While most of the pioneering subjects of Wall Street Women did not participate in the women's movement as it was happening in the 1960s and 1970s, Fisher argues that they did produce a market feminism which aligned liberal feminist ideals about meritocracy and gender equity with the logic of the market.

Road to Power: How GM's Mary Barra Shattered the Glass Ceiling
Follow a pioneer's journey from factory floor to CEO Road to Power is the story of how Mary Barra drove herself to the pinnacle of a company that steers the nation's wealth. Beginning as a rare female electrical engineer and daughter of a General Motors die maker, Barra spent more than thirty years building her career before becoming the first woman to ever lead a global automaker. With $155 billion in sales and 200,000 employees, GM is widely considered to be a proxy for the U.S. economy, making Barra's position arguably the most important corporate role a woman has ever held. This book describes the personal character, choices, and leadership style that enabled her to break through the glass ceiling. When 52-year-old Mary Barra was named CEO of General Motors in 2013, only people outside of the company were surprised. She had done everything from working on the factory floor to overseeing manufacturing, from improving union relations to paring down bureaucracy, and from running human resources to helping drag the company back from its 2009 bankruptcy. This book details each step of her career, and the lessons she learned along the way. * Learn how Mary Barra's willingness to take on diverse assignments helped steer her career trajectory * Examine the fine details of Barra's management style and her ability to relate to colleagues * Discover the qualities and experiences Barra had that drove her to lead this male-dominated profession * Study the valuable lessons Barra learned at each stage in her professional life, and why they stuck with her throughout her journey to the top Barra is most certainly a pioneer for women in business, but she's also a living lesson as to how far the right outlook, skills, and drive can take you in your career. Road to Power explores the talent and the mindset that got her all the way to the top.

Millionaire Women Next Door: The Many Journeys of Successful American Businesswomen
Most Americans are not free. They are chained to their paychecks............The women profiled herein will not tolerate such an existence. They are a different breed. They are free. They are cultivators of wealth and satisfied with life. Dr. Thomas J. Stanley first swept aside the mythical magic curtain of wealth with The Millionaire Next Door, revealing just who and how common the truly wealthy were in this country as well as the characteristics and habits that made them so. With Millionaire Women Next Door, he now focuses on one of the least understood but increasingly rich demographics. Why write another book that profiles millionaires? Stanley asks. The vast majority of the millionaire respondents (92 percent) in The Millionaire Next Door were men............ I felt that it was indeed time for successful businesswomen of the self-made variety to be heard. And heard they are in this book that is every bit as informative and inspirational as the author's earlier works. Stanley's thoroughly researched findings and conclusions will fascinate readers everywhere. They'll definitely come away more knowledgeable and greatly inspired by women who have found the key to riches.

Gender, Identity and the Culture of Organizations
Gender, Identity and the Culture of Organizations considers how organizations operate as spaces in which minds are gendered and men and women constructed. This edited collection brings together four powerful themes that have developed within the field of organizational analysis over the past two decades: organizational culture; the gendering of organizations; post-modernism and organizational analysis; and critical approaches to management. A range of essays by distinguished writers from countries including the UK, USA, Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands and Sweden, explore innovative methods for the critical theorizing of organizational cultures. In particular, the book reflects the growing interest in the impact of organizational identity formation and its implications for individuals and organizational outcomes in terms of gender. The book also introduces research designs, methods and methodologies by which can be used to explore the complex interrelationships between gender, identity and the culture of organizations.

Capital Accumulation and Womens Labour in Asian Economies
This ambitious book provides a theoretical interpretation of the rapidly changing economic conditions in contemporary Asia and their consequences for women. It is based on field research and data on the labouring conditions of women workers and peasant women in India, Bangladesh and Japan, combined with a broad comparative study of currents in international feminism. The author first locates present-day feminist debates in the context of the intellectual controversies on labour which accompanied the growth of social and women workers' movements in 19th century and early 20th century Europe. He then highlights the labour conditions in the readymade garments industry - a key sector in many Asian economies - and provides a wide-ranging overview of the processes of agrarian modernization and their impact on rural women. Finally, he offers an original interpretation of Japanisation, and uses both Marxist and feminist concepts to explain why the state has promoted the employment of middle-aged women as part-time wage labourers. Peter Custers re-asserts the relevance of Marxist concepts for understanding processes of socio-economic change, but arguers forcefully that these concepts need to be enlarged to include the perspectives of feminist theoreticians. In this process, he assesses the theoretical relevance of several currents in international feminism, including ecofeminism, the German feminist school and socialist feminism. This important book will interest all those involved in women's studies, social movements, economics, sociology and social and economic theory.

Back on the Career Track: A Guide for Stay-at-Home Mothers Who Want to Return to Work
For full-time mums, going back to work doesn't mean returning to your old job and easing back into the life you had before staying home to take care of the kids. Instead, it means reigniting old contacts (even those who were once your junior), marketing yourself and getting over the intimidation that plagues most women who have been out of the workforce - whether it's been two, six or fifteen years. Carol Cohen and Vivian Rabin, who have successfully pulled it off themselves, know that it can be done - with careful planning, strategising and creativity. In BACK ON THE CAREER TRACK, they offer a seven-step program for going back to work. They also offer advice on maintaining the balance between work and home, and navigating the inevitable sticky situations with family and friends that arise when you return to work.

The Scarlet Sisters: Sex, Suffrage, and Scandal in the Gilded Age
Victoria Claflin Woodhull and Tennessee 'Tennie' Claflin were true American originals. These vastly forward-thinking sisters' push for women's fiscal, political, and sexual independence placed them among the most fascinating, flamboyant, and scandalous women of the 19th century. In just a few decades, they achieved a stunning list of firsts: half a century before women could vote, Victoria became the first woman to run for president, choosing former slave Frederick Douglass as her running mate; Tennie ran for congress and shocked the world by becoming the honorary colonel of a black regiment. Together, they opened the first brokerage house run by women, not only surviving 1869's infamous Black Friday, but actually making money, and were bankrolled by legendary tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt amid high gossip that he was Tennie's lover. They were the first female publishers of a radical weekly newspaper, leaders in the Spiritualist movement, and heroines among the liberal wing of Suffragettes for revealing Victorian hypocrisy in their speeches and in Woodhull & Claflin's Weekly. In exposing Henry Ward Beecher's alleged adulterous affair they took on the most famous preacher in America and starred in the 'Trial of the Century' that rivaled the Civil War for media coverage. Telling their story with vivid and engaging detail, award-winning historian Myra MacPherson brings these inspiring and outrageous sisters brilliantly to life, and in doing so deconstructs the manners and mores of Victorian America.

A Mother's Work: How Feminism, the Market, and Policy Shape Family Life
The question of how best to combine work and family life has led to lively debates in recent years. Both a lifestyle and a policy issue, it has been addressed psychologically, socially, and economically, and conclusions have been hotly contested. But as Neil Gilbert shows in this penetrating and provocative book, we haven't looked closely enough at how and why these questions are framed, or who benefits from the proposed answers. A Mother's Work takes a hard look at the unprecedented rise in childlessness, along with the outsourcing of family care and household production, which have helped to alter family life since the 1960s. It challenges the conventional view on how to balance motherhood and employment, and examines how the choices women make are influenced by the culture of capitalism, feminist expectations, and the social policies of the welfare state. Gilbert argues that while the market ignores the essential value of a mother's work, prevailing norms about the social benefits of work have been overvalued by elites whose opportunities and circumstances little resemble those of most working- and middle-class mothers. And the policies that have been crafted too often seem friendlier to the market than to the family. Gilbert ends his discussion by looking at the issue internationally, and he makes the case for reframing the debate to include a wider range of social values and public benefits that present more options for managing work and family responsibilities.
