Performing is an occupation where (unlike many other occupations) the highest levels of success of women workers is accepted and expected. However, although the report indicates that men and women operate within similar tacit ‘rules’ relating to age and appearance, it seems these rules are experienced differently, based on our broader perceptions of gender and age and how these conceptions are translated into what is written, produced and cast. This results in systematically dissimilar employment experiences in an occupation that nominally requires the same skills in the same workplaces at the same times.
