Gender Images in Public Administration
Legitimacy and the Administrative State
Extensively updated to reflect recent research and new theoretical literature, this much-anticipated Second Edition applies a gender lens to the field of public administration, looking at issues of status, power, leadership, legitimacy and change. The author examines the extent of womenâ€™s historical progress as public employees, their current status in federal, state, and local governments, the peculiar nature of the organizational reality they experience, and womenâ€™s place in society at large as it is shaped by government.
