Abstract [en]

This chapter addresses the intersections of age, gender and work–family relations, and how these intersections relate to careers, care, and the structuring of time more generally in the lives of women in high managerial positions. We examine how female top managers in different age groups perceive their work–care relations. These questions closely relate to individual life stages and phases of career and care responsibilities, as well as the aged/gendered societal and organisational expectations of the ‘ideal worker’ and the ‘ideal carer’. We draw the analysis from three sets of interview data in order to examine the perceptions of care responsibilities as well as aged/gendered managerial work in the context of work/non-work and long term career prospects.
