Hakim, Catherine (1994) A century of change in occupational segregation 1891-1991. Journal of historical sociology, 7 (4). pp. 435-454. ISSN 0952-1909
Abstract Data from the Population Censuses for 1891 and 1991 are analysed to assess long term trends in the degree and pattern of occupational segregation. Two competing theories are addressed: that occupational segregation is linked to levels of female employment, and that occupational segregation was prompted in the nineteenth century by a concern to control sexuality and fertility behaviour. Sociologists have overlooked the impact of social factors outside the labour force on developments within the workforce.
