What accounts for the underrepresentation of women in some jobs, and the overrepresentation of women in others? Why is there a wage gap between men and women? How does the division of household labor influence women's and men's participation in the paid labor force? This course examines the role that gender plays in shaping the experience of work, including causes and implications of occupational sex segregation and wage inequality, and social policies affecting gender relations in work organizations. Also examines the interaction of work and family life, including the allocation of household work and control of resources.
