Feminist women have challenged the traditional nature of working life for decades and in doing so have created an alternative set of organisational principles. Many feminist services and agencies around the world have applied these principles to the structural and relational aspects of their organisation. This book reports on the outcomes of research conducted with women who worked in feminist organisations in the Northern Territory of Australia; in a political and social environment often hostile to their values and beliefs. It describes the challenges women confront in their attempts to create a viable, nurturing alternative to patriarchal bureaucracy as well as the many joys and satisfactions that accompany working with and for other women. This book will be a useful resource for women who attempt to create a work environment that nourishes and sustains workers in ways that are progressive and challenging to traditional organisational practices.
