This chapter sums up the key findings of this ethnographic study of litigation paralegals and trial attorneys at work, which has argued that gender shapes legal workers' practices at the same time that their practices constitute and reproduce hierarchical gendered relations. It also discusses the implications of the findings for sociological theorizing about sex segregation, the labor process, and the construction of gender identity in the workplace. The chapter furthermore proposes possible solutions to the problems that sex segregation creates for women legal workers in both feminized and non-traditional occupations.
