Gender and Japanese Management
by Kimiko Kimoto, Hitotsubashi University

Using data from surveys conducted in a department store and a supermarket, this ground-breaking study discusses the forces shaping job segregation by gender. Kimoto shows that the portrayal of women as necessarily disadvantaged participants in the labour market serves only to prevent one from seeing how gender norms and relations actually develop in the workplace. She lucidly demonstrates the reasons for women’s difficulties in moving beyond the lower levels of management.
