Focusing on the movement of women from home to the workplace, this chapter describes the influx of women into the paid labor force and how they secured gender equity. Women of diverse backgrounds made the central business district a worldly, rather than a domestic, workplace. In the process, they were rewriting the job description of their gender and quietly challenging the most basic coordinate of gender difference, the asymmetry of the sexes.

Keywords:   home, workplace, women, labor force, gender equity, gender differences, asymmetry
