Despite many years of improved equality of opportunity, around 90% of nurses are female, and 90% of engineers are male. Gender and Choice in Education and Occupation challenges the myth of androgynous work and presents cutting-edge research on "brainsex" and its effects on personality, education and choice. It examines intra-sex differences as well as male-female differences and similarities, and targets job attributes, work flexibility, long term life planning, home-work conflict, prestige versus occupational interest, and intrinsic motivational mechanisms to explain the relative failure of intervention policies to date. The contributors who come from a wide range of academic and professional experience, review the empirical literature in relation to socialization, sex stereotyping, class and race, and offer practical ways of improving fairness in selection processes.
