TL;DR: In this article, the gendered nature of what organization studies researchers themselves do when they research and write is discussed, and the possibilities for, following Helene Cixous, a bisexual writing of organization studies are explored.
Abstract: While gender very much holds a place in organization studies, this is primarily in relation to being an object of study.

Surgery will still offer a male-dominated speciality.
