Summary expansion
Gender Capital at Work uses new data from interviews with nurses, social workers, exotic dancers and hairdressers to explore the processes involved in producing and reproducing gendered and classed workers and occupations. In doing so, this book argues that femininity, femaleness, masculinity and maleness work as assets in feminised occupations and that the concept 'gender capital' may help researches to better understand the complex relationship between gender, class and occupation. This book builds on Bourdieusian theory, particularly the concept 'gender capital', and provides a unique approach to gendered occupational segregation
