In the immediate post-war period and despite the influx of women into war-related work, employment remained dominated by men. In the 1950s and 1960s, women were widely perceived to be participating in employment in a temporary and subordinate capacity before getting down to their life’s role of bearing and nurturing children. This chapter investigates the gendered nature of work and gender identities at work.
