1 Bob Connell: Globalization and Maculinities Like Lorber and Sapolesky, shows how gender is re-packaged to suit changing conditions—in this case, global capitalism Argues that a hegemonic masculinity has emerged because the logic, actual processes and institutions of globalization are themselves all gendered Therefore rejects the idea that globalization is a homogenizing process that reduces all to equal terms on a planetary scale Instead, globalization extends and deepens existing inequalities across the world In this it carries out its 2 historical precursors, which were also gendered phenomena: o Imperialism o Colonization o Globalization = a continuation of the gendered inequalities established earlier 4 dimensions of gender make this clear—these were transformed by colonialism and reworked to support dominant masculinities: o the division of labour: men associated with wages, women with home o power relations: colonies subordinated by comprador relations
