    Movement and coalition in contention: gender, management and academe in England and Sweden2012Inngår i: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 19, nr 1, s. 52-70Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper opens by considering recent change in higher education, examined through literature on new public management. In this literature the direction of change is decided in advance, assumed to emanate from above, and conceptualised as moments fixed in time. As a consequence, it is argued, the rich processes of change enacted through time, which seek to take account of the motives of those involved, are elided. It is further argued that change is more appropriately understood as contested rather than consensual, and that civil society is implicated in processes of public sector change in the organisations affected. An attempt is made accordingly to analyse the presence of civil society influences through social movement processes within universities as non-social movement organisations. Arguments are considered for and against the status of the new public management as social or managerial movement, which is taken to be a coalition rather than a social movement, acting as the organisational glue of many neo-liberal regimes. It is then shown that women's movements, understood conventionally as social movements within social movement theory literature, are alive and well in the halls of academe, engaged in direct and indirect struggle and forms of symbolic contestation in the furtherance of gender equity in the milieu of management reform. It is concluded that empirical work, which makes use of social movement theory, is necessary to explore management change attempts in order to take fuller account of those involved, and of movement and coalition in contention.

    Social movement, action and change: the influence of women's movements on city government in Mumbai and London2004Inngår i: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 11, nr 2, s. 143-162Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article reports on a research investigation into gender and local government in Mumbai in India and London in England. In both these cities female representation at the political level stands at around one third, achieved in London slowly in recent years and in Mumbai more rapidly through the adoption of a quota, or seat reservation system, implemented in 1992. In considering the experience of the women concerned it is argued that their presence and aspirations have been influenced through the networks of their respective women's movements, operating through civil society and the local state. In considering the ways in which they organize and manage the duties of office and their gendered identities, as well as in their focus on the most disadvantaged in their communities and in their dealings with others, the part played by social movements in influencing change is examined.

    Work Psychology, Women and Stress: Silence, Identity and the Boundaries of Conventional Wisdom1996Inngår i: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 3, nr 2, s. 65-77Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Discusses the literature on women & organizational/workplace stress & then considers some of its assumptions, limitations, & silences. It is suggested that not all women share identical intersts & that different forms of resistance formulated by women, from individual action to social support networks, are required to address workplace stress. Contrast is drawn between an approach derived from a politics of identity rooted in feminist theory & the conventional approach of work psychologists characterized by individual/social roles & an androgynous approach initiated from above. 1 Figure, 76 References.

    Old dreams, new means: an exploration of visions and situated knowledge in information technology2007Inngår i: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 14, nr 4, s. 371-387Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to explore the tensions and ambivalences of new and old technology and political visions of keeping viable, quality care and services for elderly citizens through the use of new information technologies. The visions of politicians and social service managers of keeping alive the welfare state and retaining its ability to offer quality care and services for elderly citizens are compared with the experiences of female care assistants and their expectations of technology. A feminist figure — the cyborg — will be used in this exploration. We consider how care assistants are integrated in networks of socio-technical relations between humans and non-humans, and the extent to which gender or asymmetrical power relations between women and men intervene in their stories.

    ‘In a Male Workplace, Things Would Never Be Like This’: Using Gendered Notions to Neutralize Conflicts in a Swedish Supermarket2016Inngår i: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 23, nr 5, s. 505-517Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study concerns the ‘practising of gender neutrality’ and the organizational practices that contribute to the creation of gendered notions in a relation of mutual constitution. Based on a case study of one Swedish supermarket, I investigate the gendered notions present in the descriptions of the supermarket activities by relating them to the organization of the work and the gendered and aged employment structure of the supermarket. The findings suggest that the problems which, according to gendered notions were grounded in the nature of men and women, could be related to organizational practices. It was concluded that specific notions of gender were used to neutralize potential conflicts and to make them into a non-issue for the organization. This study also contributes insights to the discussions surrounding the intersection of age and gender in organizations, and skills and learning in retail work.

    Conditioned openings and restraints: The meaning‐making of women professionals breaking into the male‐dominated sector of forestry2019Inngår i: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses how women forestry professionals articulate and interpret their experiences of being a woman and a professional in the male‐dominated context of forestry. The findings suggest that the entrance of women into forestry has created openings as well as restraints within the dominant discourses of forestry organizations. Gendered constructions of skills and a workplace culture described as built on homosocial values cause women to feel questioned and disadvantaged. At the same time, women are valued for their perceived capacity to perform relational‐based aspects of forestry work and as a means to reduce gender segregation. We conclude that while these openings are conditioned by discourses of gender differences and masculine privileges, they provide women, to some extent, with subjectivity and organizational space that, with time, may challenge the dominant and gendered discourses of forestry organizations.

    The Business Case of Gender Equality in Swedish Forestry and Mining: Restricting or Enabling Organizational Change2017Inngår i: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 24, nr 6, s. 628-642Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Forestry and mining constitutes an important part of Swedish basic industry. These industries are heavily male-dominated and are expressing an ambition to become more gender equal and less gender-segregated, arguing that this could strengthen their competitiveness in a number of areas. In this article we explore how company representatives construct gender equality as a business case and discuss how these constructions restrict and/or enable gender equality in these organizations. Departing from a social constructivist understanding of how language (re)produces gendered power relations in the workplace, the empirical basis of this paper consists of eight interviews with respondents who possess special insights into, and being of strategic importance to, gender equality issues in forestry and mining companies. In our analysis we found three dominant dimensions of the business case of gender equality Marketing (as) gender equality, Uncovering the male norm and Gender equality as a depoliticized value. We conclude that the business case framing facilitates for the companies to engage in issues of gender equality. However, issues concerning conflicting interests and power relations seem to be difficult to address within the business case discourse. This we argue affects and shapes the terms for gender equality in these organizations
