Maume (2004) shows in a study of managerial attainment in the US that vertical segregation operated in different ways for different social groups. Senior positions in management were most likely to be held by white men, and least likely to be held by black women; interestingly, young black men showed career success, although still falling short of parity with white men. Vertical segregation is still strong in Nordic countries (Melkas and Anker 1998). Research from Sweden shows that the few women who reached top positions are usually in administrative support functions – accounting, personnel or public relations (Swedish Institute of Occupational Health 1995).
In the US, some decline in horizontal occupational segregation is reported (Chao and Utgoff 2005), alongside some resegregation (Jacobsen 1994; Reskin and Roos 1990). 2 shows British women’s percentage share of occupational groups. As can be seen, three occupational groups, employing nearly half of all women, are at least two-thirds female. Similarly half of all men are employed in three occupational groups – managers and senior officials, process, plant and machine operatives, skilled trades – that are at least two-thirds male.
