'I don't think I can actually remember a time in policing when I didn't want to join the Armed Offenders Squad. My early reasons for joining probably weren't the purest, though - I just thought they looked really cool.' Five Foot and Fearless is the inspiring story of Liz Williams, a police officer and mum of one, who desperately wanted to be part of the Armed Offenders Squad. The brutal selection process would send most people running for cover, but her husband's words spurred her on: 'You know, you could do it if you wanted to.' Liz's story is one of determination and girl power. She struggles with motherhood and childcare just like any other working mum - but in Liz's world, she needs someone to look after her son at 1 a.m. when she's called on to fight crime. A gifted storyteller, Liz entertains with tales of drowning in AOS gear that is too big for her, trying to keep her togs from riding up in the swim trial, and dealing with criminals in bad underwear. But her story has a darker side, as she reveals the harsh realities of the job that an AOS member faces every day. Liz's account of the 2009 Napier siege is especially harrowing. At times laugh-out-loud funny, at other times shocking, Liz's story offers rare insights into one of the most dangerous jobs in the country.

This work of reference represents a remarkably complete, detailedand extensive review of the field of gender, work and organizationin the second decade of the 21st century.

Thechapters, by top scholars in their areas of expertise, offer bothreviews and empirical findings, and insights and challenges forfurther work. The chapters are organized in five sections:Histories and Philosophies; Organizing Work and the GenderedOrganization; Embodiment; Globalization; and Diversity. Theoretical and conceptual developments at the cutting edge ofthe field are explicated and illustrated by the handbook’sauthors. Methods for conducting research into gender, work andorganization are reviewed and assessed as well as illustrated inthe work of several chapters. Efforts to produce greater gender equality in the workplaceare covered in nearly every chapter, in terms of past successes andfailures. Military organizations are presented as one of thedifficult to change in regards to gender (with the result thatwomen are marginalized in practice even when official policies andgoals require their full inclusion). The role of the body/embodiment is emphasized in severalchapters, with attention both to how organizations disciplinebodies and how organizational members use their bodies to gainadvantage. Particular attention is paid to sexuality in/andorganizations, including sexual harassment, policies to alleviatebias, and the likelihood that future work will pay more attentionto the body’s presence and role in work andorganizations. Many chapters also address “change efforts” thathave been employed by individuals, groups, and organizations,including transnational ones such as the European Union, the UnitedNations, and so on. In addition to its value for teachers and students within thisfield, it also offers insights that would be of value to policymakers and practitioners who need to reflect on the latest thinkingrelating to gender at work and in organizations.
