In this unique and lively ethnography of women who sell cars, sociologist Helene M. Lawson and the ‘ladies on the lot’ take readers behind the scenes of one of the last bastions of a predominantly male workplace: the car dealership. Linking the women’s own stories within the broader framework of gender and occupation, Lawson presents an engaging and important case study on the impact of gender differences and behavior in the workplace.
