  • ...Luce Irigaray and Hélène Cixous (Sellers 1994) showed some years ago that the Western philosophical tradition, including much Freudian theory, is ‘phallomorphic’ in character, shaped by patterns of thought which privilege linear processes over cyclical, lateral or complex ones, emphasising the feminine as messy and incomplete when compared to the magisterial unity of the masculine (Irigaray 1985a, 1985b).6 The vertical logic of the Leviathan is a typical expression of these prejudices, and it is no accident, as will be discussed later, that the women’s movement has been one of the most important innovators in trying to break with its organisational implications....

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. Still largely silent and inexplicit is the gendered nature of what organization studies researchers themselves do when they research and write. Our overarching project in this essai is to render the gendered character of organization studies writing open for discussion, to disturb the taken-for-granted gender neutrality of the ways that organization studies is written, as well as to outline how it might be otherwise. The specific contribution we are led to is the setting out of the possibilities for, following Helene Cixous, a bisexual writing of organization studies. We suggest that organization studies has been dominated by a participation in what Cixous calls a ‘masculine libidinal economy’. This is a system of exchange where science, mastery and rigour are not so much an effort in inquiry, but more a form of (rough) trade through which to appease the fear of castration; the fear of ...

TL;DR: Can contemporary feminist thought drawn from the social sciences help medical educators to widen their appreciation and understanding of the feminising of medicine?
Abstract: Perhaps the most significant structural change in recent times in medicine is the shift from a dominance of men entering the profession to a dominance of women worldwide. However, while more women than men will soon be practicing medicine globally, there is a trend for women to work part-time, and women will still not access senior positions in many areas of medicine, including medical education. Surgery will still offer a male-dominated speciality.
