About This Book

Across communication industries, women face barriers and a Catch-22 situation at all organisational levels and suffer from cultural masculinities. Offering a systematic overview of women's lived experiences, this book discusses major issues in contemporary communication industries, including public relations, journalism and advertising, to understand the barriers that still exist.

With a particular focus on office culture, the book concentrates on analysing the position and experiences of women working across communication industries and uses the theoretical framework of cultural masculinities to explore whether women's organisational experiences and the lack of opportunities span across sectors. The author explores how cultural masculinities as well as discrimination, sexism and harassment can work against women's interests and impede their career progression. The chapters provide a quality overview of existing theories as well as new insights to demonstrate how organisations operate and function in a way that systematically disadvantages women.

The book will be a valuable resource for academics and researchers in the fields of organisational studies, public relations, advertising and journalism, as well as postgraduate and doctoral students in these areas. The interdisciplinary nature will also appeal to those across gender and labour studies and human resource management.
