The book explores the careers of women managers in Hong Kong and Britain and documents two important findings. First, the pattern of women's careers and how these are affected by differences in culture; second, the way in which women managers experience their work and the world. And there are very significant differences in both these spheres. The empirical foundation is based upon 400 responses from questionnaires and 45 in-depth interviews with women in both societies.
