Abstract

Women's presence in the labour force has significantly increased but they are still in a minority at the senior levels of most organizations. This special issue will explore how women through discourses of meritocracy, difference and choice make sense of such a disparity and other tensions within their working lives. In particular the papers in this special issue explore how women's continued entanglement in traditional roles connected with home and family lead them to reinterpret their work situation either through a reconsideration of what they understand by the notion of merit or a presentation of their situation through the lens of choice.
