Women and Work 2007: Current RMIT University Research

Women and Work 2007 brings together eight articles, most of which were originally presented as papers at the third annual Women and Work conference at RMIT University. This conference series has a short history, but the articles draw on a much longer history of research in this field.

This monograph publishes research on women and work that addresses work and family balance, female-dominated occupations and women in male-dominated occupations and roles, gender and sex work, the work involved in negotiating work and welfare, gendered bullying, and the ways we might understand gender and its effects in the workplace.

Discussion at the conference strayed at various times beyond the papers, however, and turned the lens on women researchers themselves and their experience of universities.
