This paper draws upon research on womens employment in the UK bookpublishing industry. Contrary to public opinion that publishing offersexceptional opportunities for women, the survey revealed that althoughwomen make up 60 per cent of the workforce, men were more than twice aslikely to become managers and more than 5 times as likely to becomedirectors. Processes contributing to gendered occupational segregationand the operation of dual labour markets are analysed in terms ofpressures and preferences mediated by atraditionally informal approach to personnel practices. Structuralchange is creating polarisation into large conglomerates and smallspecialised operations the implications for womens careers arediscussed briefly.
