LUCI, Florencia. The sexual division of administrative labor: feminine careers at large Argentine companies. Rev. katálysis [online]. 2010, vol.13, n.1, pp. 29-39. ISSN 1414-4980. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-49802010000100004.
This article analyzes the particular conditions in which administrative careers for women develop at large Argentine companies. It is based on a qualitative study conducted at eight global companies based in Buenos Aires, at which were interviewed managers of various ages, genders and levels. The intention was to understand the unequal conditions that women experience in managerial positions, the specific characteristics of a managerial career and the "glass ceiling" that separates them from the top of the organization.
Keywords : large firms; women's careers; inequality.
