Contents:
Cover; CONTENTS; EDITORIAL ADVISORY BOARD; New technology and gendered divisions of labour; New technologies and the transformations of women's labour at home and work; Time pressure, technology and gender: the conditioning of temporal experiences in the UK; Science related careers: aspirations and outcomes in two British cohort studies; Networks of exclusion: job segmentation and social networks in the knowledge economy; Shaping women or changing the system: accounts of gender inequality in science
Summary: This e-book investigates some of the reasons why women and men do not experience the revolutionary forces of new technologies in the same way. The collection of papers here is probably unique in that its focus is not just on paid work but also on the implications of technological change for gender equality in domestic labour. Taken together, the papers show the dynamic interdependence of work undertaken in both the public and private spheres and the role of different forms of new technologies in influencing inequalities in the division of labour between women and men.
