Abstract:     
This paper presents a model in which agents are distinguished by their characteristics, communication between firms and their customers plays an important role, and agents with similar characteristics communicate more effectively. The model is applied to annual data on the distribution of men and women across manufacturing and services in twelve OECD countries from 1965-93. These data display surprising regularities. The model provides an explanation for this in terms of technological change in firms and households.
