Book Recommendation: Bisom-Rapp & Sargeant’s Lifetime Disadvantage, Discrimination and the Gendered Workforce

Susan Bisom-Rapp (Thomas Jefferson, USA) and Malcolm Sargeant (Middlesex University, London, UK) wrote a fabulous book, Lifetime Disadvantage, Discrimination and the Gendered Workforce (Cambridge Press) and just in time to add to your summer reading, it is released in paperback. The book looks in a systematic way at the patterns of gap expansion and the accumulation of disadvantage that women face over the course of their careers and into retirement. The book takes the approach of looking at the work life cycle in a comprehensive sequential way and offering ways to connect  questions such as education, skills and training, stereotyping and gender discrimination, caregiving and family/work balance, glass ceilings, occupational segregation and non-standard working - and into pensions and life after work. I highly recommend the book and I loved its comparative lens.
