Women and Work in the Information Age

Abstract:     
Widespread social transformation and new class structures are predicted with the coming of the "information age", but there is disagreement about the likely outcomes for work and employment patterns. Mainstream writing on the information age, both from the functionalist and Marxist traditions, tends not to consider likely consequences for women, but recent feminist research on gender and technology, treating technology as masculine culture, offers a useful framework for further research. This article argues that the information age may lead to some areas of convergence between the sexes in their experience of future work, but men may continue to defend areas of competence and to dominate the high status and powerful occupational positions of the future.
