Sex, career and family: including an international review of women's roles by Michael Fogarty( Book )

28 editions published between 1971 and 2017 in English and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although concerned primarily with women in top jobs, the study also extends to women's opportunities in professional and managerial positions. It also focuses on the general pattern of relationships between men and women. Examining the special problem of women's promotion to top jobs, Part 1 studies the discrepancy between women's contribution to the lower and middle ranks of many highly qualified professions and the smaller number of women in higher posts. Part 2 reviews recent developments in Eastern Europe and in Western countries, studying the convergence of their different ideological points of view, attitudes, and policies. Based on national surveys, Part 3 considers the career and family patterns envisaged by young, highly qualified British women and the practicability of reconciling the two careers of husband and wife with successful family life. Part 4 examines the results of studies of women's experience in the following occupations: industrial and general business management, the broadcasting industry, Administrative Civil Service, architecture, medicine, teaching, and social service. Finally Part 5 considers possible long range implications of the enquiry, and of parallel work by Political and Economic Planning (pep) on the agencies promoting equal opportunities for women. Statistical data are appended. (Mw)

Leisure and the family life cycle by Rhona Rapoport( Book )

16 editions published between 1975 and 1978 in English and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors describe people's preoccupations at different stages of the life cycle, and look at holidays, hobbies, and institutionalised leisure, in terms of the contemporary changes in society. While not denying the need for large-scale societal support for many leisure and recreational programmes, they are particularly concerned with the hazards of the rapid institutionalisation of leisure, and suggest ways in which leisure providers can bridge the gap between their emerging institutions and the people for whom they are built
Beyond work-family balance : advancing gender equity and workplace performance( Book )

11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Everyone who struggles to meet the demands of work and personal-life responsibilities knows how tough it is to do so. This book shows that it is the deeply engrained separation of work and personal life that has limited our ability to deal effectively with the conflict between them. Beyond Work-Family Balance demonstrates why the image of "balance" is outmoded and why a new approach-work-personal life integration-offers greater promise for meaningful change."--Jacket
