Drawing on a qualitative study of women contractors in the IT sector, this paper provides an understanding of why women become IT workers and why they become contractors. It further explores the experience of this work by considering the nature of their power and influence. In particular issues of status, pay and the relationships with permanent staff and the organisational culture are considered as well as the impact of gender on the contracting experience.
