Stability and change in gender relations

Sociological Theory 8 (2):136-152 (1990)
Relationships between men and women can change rapidly, yet simultaneously can resist change. This paradox is addressed by a theory of social organization in the "personality and social structure" tradition, which attempts to explain what aspects of gender relations change most readily and what aspects are most resistant to change, in terms of 1) institutional models of organization and 2) the contrasting ways in which status and role affect identity. Changes in gender relations appear first in the public sphere, but are more likely to persist if they are institutionalized in both public and domestic spheres, and are embodied in identities
