Rooted in ideologies about the nature of a ‘just society’, competing and at times contradictory underlying assumptions are rarely thoroughly questioned or examined by organisations committed to being ‘equal opportunities employers’. Added to this complexity is the tension in the relationship between EO principles and the workings of a laissez faire labour market. Some commentators argue that policies designed to achieve EO are an expensive luxury and at odds with the operation of an efficient economy.

Becoming integrated entailed feeling ‘mutilated’ (Beccalli 1984:201). They determined that it was better to change the unions, rather than changing themselves in order to seek equality within them. Parallel experiences have been reported by women who set up their own businesses, rather than work as employees in male dominated work cultures which they find alienating (Muir 1997; Rees 1992b, chapter 9). Similarly, there are studies of women in male dominated jobs who report they have to behave ‘like a man’ as a survival strategy (Breakwell 1985) and of able senior women managers who drop out mid-career from the stress of gender dissonance (Marshall 1995; Tanton 1994).

Squires (1994:7) shows how this is due to a confusion between the importance of difference and domination: we need to ask of equal opportunities whether it is difference or disadvantage which is our primary concern, for there is a difference between distinguishing people according to group attributes, and explicitly restricting the actions and opportunities of group members. Yet simple difference all too often does translate into perceived inferiority…. Of central importance…is the attempt to overcome disadvantage without denying difference.
