About this Unit
This unit explores the core issues of gender and work in late modernity and aims to provide students with conceptual skills for taking strategies of change into the work place. It includes an examination of the sex segregated nature of the Australian workplace; the impact of anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation and policies; the nature of sexual harassment; unionization; systemic gender-related problems in workplace cultures; and domestic versus public workplaces.
