They claim to be revaluing feminine soft skills as qualities necessary for corporate success. This book looks behind the rhetoric and investigates the gender relations of senior management in a post equal opportunities world.The proportion of women managers has risen dramatically in the last twenty years, yet there are still very few women getting to the top.

Based on a major study of five multinational corporations with model equality policies, this book takes a critical look at womens and mens experience in a changing corporate climate. Wajcman brings to bear feminist theories on equality and difference in employment, together with organizational analysis, in her assessment of whether women really do bring a distinct feminine style of management to tomorrow s organizations.

The main focus is on the processes of masculine organizational culture that sexualize women and exclude them from senior management.But how comfortable are men with the masculinity of management? This book presents fascinating material on the private lives of managers and looks at the interconnections between home and work for men as well as women.

The author reveals how relations between the sexes are negotiated in the corridors of power and at the kitchen sink.
