Culture 4.4 / HEA4U05 : Gender and work in Contemporary Britain and the USA
Enseignant : M. Marc CALVINI-LEFEBVRE
Why are women paid less than men on average? Why are there so few male midwives and female firefighters? What is the “glass ceiling”, how did it come about, and can it/should it be shattered? We will explore these and other questions by looking at the labour market in the United Kingdom and the United States through the lens of a rapidly-expanding field of academia called “gender studies”.
