The first half of this paper examines the relationship between women's status and their continuity rate of full-time employment (CRFE). It is found that CRFE is independent of women's status in occupational structure, both longitudinally and cross-sectionally, even if the change in the composition of households' members is considered. The second half explains this finding with the aid of previous qualitative research. Everyday interaction in the white-collar workplace is more gendered than in blue-collar's, because female and male white-collar workers often work together. The feminization of white-collar work has caused sexism in the workplace and has had a negative effect on CRFE, along with the positive effect of upgrading women's occupational status.
