Example text

This yields four rather than two possibilities. Where there is a high differentiation of the public and the domestic, Waters uses the term viriarchy (rule of adult males) in preference to patriarchy. The four forms are thus: • • • • direct domestic patriarchy (patriarchy ‘proper’); extended public patriarchy (feudalism); direct domestic viriarchy (early capitalism); extended public viriarchy (late capitalism). This last case is the most distant from ‘patriarchy proper’ and closest to the social conditions of much of the contemporary industrialized world.

Organizations and what happens in them are fundamentally social, formed through various social relations, of which gender, sexuality and violation are the prime focuses here. We thus address the interconnections of gender, sexuality, violation, and organizations – what might be called ‘the gender–sexuality–violation complex’. There is an urgent need to examine gendered/sexualed violations in and around organizations. This is more than a listing of ‘events’; rather charting interconnections is part of the process of theorizing and developing theory.

Violences and violations can in turn be ways of maintaining subtexts and multiple oppressions in particular organizations, in organization and in society more generally. However, it should also be emphasized that violence and violations are not simply means for or structurings of other forms of power, domination and oppression. They are forms of power, domination and oppression in themselves that structure organizations. While such a perspective can mean that violence as violation may blur into power relations (Hearn, 1992a, 1998), a key distinction is that power relations are not necessarily violating.
