"Williams' cleverly conceived study . . . makes for completely fascinating reading. This creative and original research demonstrates for us that the maintenanace and reproduction of gender identity is very different for men and for women and that it is different when men enter a female professional preserve and when women enter one that has been both male and masculine. A wonderful book!"--Nancy Chodorow, author ofThe Reproduction of Mothering "In this fascinating book, Christine Williams demonstrates that a sociology informed by psychoanalysis can give us important insights into the nature of our society and culture, especially in regard to the ambiguous and ambivalent attitudes that define our gender relations."--Eli Sagan, author ofFreud, Women, and MoralityWilliams, Christine L. is the author of 'Gender Differences at Work Women and Men in Nontraditional Occupations', published 1991 under ISBN 9780520074255 and ISBN 0520074254.
