Managers are rational, goal oriented, and impersonal, they are risk takers focused on maximizing profit. The corporate context in which they operate is also profoundly gendered, explicitly designed to be “lean, mean, aggressive, goal oriented, efficient and competitive” (Acker 1992, 253). As Messerschmidt (1995) notes, the Challenger launch decision posed a number of threats to MTI managers. Worried about losing their contract, under severe pressure from NASA flight control, and afraid of appearing indecisive in the face of uncertainty, MTI managers did masculinity by invoking the masculine stereotype of the risk taker, and in so doing reaffirmed their identities as men.
We know, for example, that people are less likely to report violent acts committed against them by family members, meaning that the major source of violence to women is undoubtedly undercounted. We also know that reporting varies by race and class. In many distressed urban settings, African Americans may be reluctant to trust the police due to their experiences with brutality or a perception of racism on the part of the criminal justice system (Cobbina, Miller, and Brunson 2008; Jones 2009; Miller 2008).
Even today these assumptions persist; women’s prisons are still more likely than men’s to employ women in domestic chores or to offer classes in cosmetology, secretarial work, and parenting. Men’s prisons developed along equally gendered lines, utilizing regimes of silence, hard labor, and military-style discipline in an effort to reconstitute appropriate masculinity (Britton 2003). Inequality is deeply embedded in assumptions about gender and practices of gendering. Masculinity and femininity are not just different, they also represent different relationships to power and resources.
