Since the 1980s there has been an ongoing theoretical debate in the Western literature on the significance of class and gender. The author's aim is to contribute to this debate by testing an empirical aspect previously neglected by researchers: the relative importance of gender compared with that of class. She looked at this aspect in a country in which research on gender is especially scarce: Hungary. The author investigated only one small and specific “slice” of this problem: the relevance of gender and class (measuring the class dimension with class origins) for a person's chances of becoming a top manager in 1993. Her goal was to document and draw attention to the fact that gender proved to be much greater importance from the point of view of live chances than class origins in Hungary. She offesr an explanation for this phenomenon and investigate the intersections of the effects of class origin and gender.
