This study uses Q methodology to examine the social identities of women in the final stages of law training. Statements concerning identity, structured around Tajfel and Turner's status quo, social mobility, and social change identity perspectives, formed the Q sample, which 40 women sorted in terms of their representations of identity in a work context. The completed Q sorts were factor analyzed, resulting in eight representations of identity which were interpreted to reveal differing emphases placed on gender identity and the relevance of other group memberships.
