|BUREAUCRACY AND EQUAL GENDER REPRESENTATION|
|Written by LUMINITA IONESCU|
ABSTRACT. The main objective of this paper is to explore and describe the implications of the resistance to female leadership, the incongruity between leader roles and the female gender role, the embeddedness of the relationship between the concepts rationality and masculinity, and the link between organizational discourse, management practices and gendered realities. This study is grounded in the considerable body of scholarship examining bureaucracy and the masculine rationality that it embodies, changes in leader roles and organizational practices, the gendered assumptions underlying rationality, and masculine rationality as the hallmark of organizational discourse. pp. 108–113
