Abstract:

Most career development literature is “gender neutral,” but many feminists feel that the existing body of knowledge tends to reflect the experiences of men. Limited theoretical and empirical attention has been paid to the similarities and differences in the career development of men and women, with the exception of two issues: glass ceiling/sticky floor and work-family experiences.
