  1. Stop Blaming Me for What Others Did to You: New Alternative Masculinity’s Communicative Acts Against Blaming Discourses.Tinka Schubert, Consol Aguilar, Kyung Hi Kim & Aitor Gómez - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    Some feminist discourses blame some men for gender inequality, gender domination, and gender-based violence. Some women use such discourse as a perfect scenario to criticize some men’s behavior. Indeed, they usually do so with Oppressed Traditional Masculinities but not with Dominant Traditional Masculinities, who are the men who were violent with those women and with whom some of those women chose to have relationships. However, there have always been men who have been on the side of women and have never (...)

  • Stay-at-Home Fathers and Breadwinning Mothers: Gender, Couple Dynamics, and Social Change.Noelle Chesley - 2011 - Gender and Society 25 (5):642-664.
    I examine experiences of married couples to better understand whether economic shifts that push couples into gender-atypical work/family arrangements influence gender inequality. I draw on in-depth interviews conducted in 2008 with stay-at-home husbands and their wives in 21 married-couple families with children. I find that the decision to have a father stay home is heavily influenced by economic conditions, suggesting that men’s increased job instability and shifts in the relative employment conditions of husbands and wives push some men into at-home (...)

  • “‘Real Men’ Support Their Wives”: Reconstructing Masculinity Among Men in Rural Northwestern Ghana.Isaac Dery & Constance Awinpoka Akurugu - 2021 - Hypatia 36 (1):172-190.
    Although there is growing debate among feminist scholars on how fathers often socialize their male children to aspire to embody specific values and behaviors, there is limited academic research on how fathers themselves construct and represent masculinity in Ghana. This article draws on data from six focus group discussions held with forty men to foreground men's negotiations, expressions, and representations of masculinity among the Dagaaba in northwestern Ghana. Our findings suggest that men in rural northwestern Ghana are likely to embody (...)

  • Challenging the Cisgender/Transgender Binary: Nonbinary People and the Transgender Label.Helana Darwin - 2020 - Gender and Society 34 (3):357-380.
    Interviews with 41 nonbinary individuals reveal a considerable amount of ambivalence among nonbinary people regarding transgender identification. There is also disagreement about which model of transgender legitimacy determines group membership: the binary and medicalized model or the umbrella model. Those who do not identify as transgender either do not consider themselves to be “trans enough” to claim group membership alongside trans men and trans women or otherwise consider their gender experience to be qualitatively different from the transgender experience. Meanwhile, those (...)

  • Women (Re)Negotiating Care Across Family Generations: Intersections of Gender and Socioeconomic Status.Thomas Scharf, Gemma Carney, Virpi Timonen & Catherine Conlon - 2014 - Gender and Society 28 (5):729-751.
    Changing Generations, a study of intergenerational relations in Ireland undertaken between 2011 and 2013 by the Social Policy and Ageing Research Centre, Trinity College, Dublin, and the Irish Centre for Social Gerontology, NUI Galway, used the Constructivist Grounded Theory method to interrogate support and care provision between generations. This article draws on interviews with 52 women ages 18 to 102, allowing for simultaneous analysis of older and younger women’s perspectives. The intersectionality of gender and class emerged as central to the (...)

  • “I Demand More of People”: Accountability, Interaction, and Gender Change.Jocelyn A. Hollander - 2013 - Gender and Society 27 (1):5-29.
    Although accountability lies at the heart of the “doing gender” perspective, it has received surprisingly little attention from gender scholars. In this article, I analyze the different ways that scholars have conceptualized accountability. I propose a synthesis of these various understandings, and demonstrate the utility of this conceptualization with examples from my research on feminist self-defense training. This analysis sheds light on both the workings of accountability and the process of change in gender expectations and practices. I conclude by considering (...)

  • Youth Privilege: Doing Age and Gender in Russia’s Single-Mother Families.Jennifer Utrata - 2011 - Gender and Society 25 (5):616-641.
    Relative to gender, race, and class, age relations are undertheorized. Yet age, like gender, is routinely accomplished in daily life. Grandmothers and adult daughters simultaneously do age and gender as they support one another in managing paid work and domestic responsibilities. Drawing on ethnographic data and interviews with 90 single mothers and 30 grandmothers in Russia, I explore intergenerational negotiations for support. Both single mothers and grandmothers are held accountable for doing gendered age, but labor and marriage markets tip the (...)

  • Caring About Food: Doing Gender in the Foodie Kitchen.Shyon Baumann, Josée Johnston & Kate Cairns - 2010 - Gender and Society 24 (5):591-615.
    This article draws on interviews with “foodies”—people with a passion for eating and learning about food—to explore questions of gender and foodie culture. The analysis suggests that while this culture is by no means gender-neutral, foodies are enacting gender in ways that warrant closer inspection. This article puts forward new empirical findings about gender and food and employs the concept of “doing gender” to explore how masculinities and femininities are negotiated in foodie culture. Our focus on doing gender generates two (...)

  • How Will We Recognize Each Other as Mapuche?: Gender and Ethnic Identity Performances in Argentina.Sarah D. Warren - 2009 - Gender and Society 23 (6):768-789.
    This article builds on the literature of “doing” identities through a case study of indigenous Mapuche people in Argentina. Argentina is a unique place to study indigenous identities because they are not rigidly defined by the state or by Argentine society, thus making social interactions more visible. My analysis shows that “doing” identities is an inherently intersectional process. Mapuche women engage in gendered interactions to create an authentic indigenous identity, often for the purpose of gaining rights, emphasizing traditional clothing to (...)

  • The Gender Binary Meets the Gender-Variant Child: Parents’ Negotiations with Childhood Gender Variance.Elizabeth P. Rahilly - 2015 - Gender and Society 29 (3):338-361.
    Until recently, raising a young child as transgender was culturally unintelligible. Most scholarship on transgender identity refers to adults’ experiences and perspectives. Now, the increasing visibility of gender-variant children, as they are identified by the parents who raise them, presents new opportunities to examine how individuals confront the gender binary and imagine more gender-inclusive possibilities. Drawing on Foucault’s notion of “truth regime” to conceptualize the regulatory forces of the gender binary in everyday life, this work examines the strategies of 24 (...)

  • Doing Gender, Determining Gender: Transgender People, Gender Panics, and the Maintenance of the Sex/Gender/Sexuality System.Kristen Schilt & Laurel Westbrook - 2014 - Gender and Society 28 (1):32-57.
    This article explores “determining gender,” the umbrella term for social practices of placing others in gender categories. We draw on three case studies showcasing moments of conflict over who counts as a man and who counts as a woman: public debates over the expansion of transgender employment rights, policies determining eligibility of transgender people for competitive sports, and proposals to remove the genital surgery requirement for a change of sex marker on birth certificates. We show that criteria for determining gender (...)

  • Gender-Based Violence Against Men and Boys in Darfur: The Gender-Genocide Nexus.Suzy Mcelrath, Hollie Nyseth Brehm & Gabrielle Ferrales - 2016 - Gender and Society 30 (4):565-589.
    Analyses of gender-based violence during mass conflict have typically focused on violence committed against women. Violence perpetrated against men has only recently been examined as gender-based violence in its own right. Using narratives from 1,136 Darfuri refugees, we analyze patterns of gender-based violence perpetrated against men and boys during the genocide in Darfur. We examine how this violence emasculates men and boys through four mechanisms: homosexualization, feminization, genital harm, and sex-selective killing. In line with an interactionist approach, we demonstrate how (...)

  • What’s Gendered About Gender-Based Violence?: An Empirically Grounded Theoretical Exploration From Tanzania.Hilde Jakobsen - 2014 - Gender and Society 28 (4):537-561.
    Violence is often considered gendered on the basis that it is violence against women. This assumption is evident both in “gender-based violence” interventions in Africa and in the argument that gender is irrelevant if violence is also perpetrated against men. This article examines the relation of partner violence not to biological sex, but to gender as conceptualized in feminist theory. It theorizes the role of gender as an analytical category in dominant social meanings of “wifebeating” in Tanzania by analyzing arguments (...)

  • Islamic Traditions of Modernity: Gender, Class, and Islam in a Transnational Women’s Education Project.Ayesha Khurshid - 2015 - Gender and Society 29 (1):98-121.
    Women’s education has been central to discourses that have sought to modernize developing and Muslim societies. Based on ethnographic data collected from women teachers from rural and low-income communities of Pakistan, the article shows how being a parhi likhi woman implies acquiring a privileged subject position making claims to middle-class and Islamic morality, and engaging in specific struggles within, rather than against, the institutions of family, community, and Islam. This focus on the lived experiences of educated Muslim women complicates the (...)

  • Doing, Undoing, or Redoing Gender?: Learning From the Workplace Experiences of Transpeople.Catherine Connell - 2010 - Gender and Society 24 (1):31-55.
    Drawing from the perspectives of transgender individuals, this article offers an empirical investigation of recent critiques of West and Zimmerman’s “doing gender” theory. This analysis uses 19 in-depth interviews with transpeople about their negotiation and management of gendered interactions at work to explore how their experiences potentially contribute to the doing, undoing, or redoing of gender in the workplace. I find that transpeople face unique challenges in making interactional sense of their sex, gender, and sex category and simultaneously engage in (...)
