This book is about women in non-traditional, male-dominated work. The question it explores is: if women work in male-dominated occupations, are they agents for change or changed themselves? Are these occupations full of feminists challenging male dominance? Or arethey full of conforming women who have been forced to change themselves for the sake of their career success? This book seeks to find out which is the more accurate assessment.

After examining the international issues surrounding 'women's' jobs and 'men's' jobs both statistically and theoretically, it looks in detail at four non-traditional occupatios: Civil Service management, academia, construction engineering and the priesthood of the Church of England. Here women speak out honestly and in detail about their experiences.
