America’s Competitive Secret

Judy B. Rosener

Oxford University Press

The way that men perceive the women they encounter at work is often influenced by profession, ethnicity, age, religion, marital status, temperament, and other such elements. It is important to note that men somehow feel uncomfortable working with women but they cannot explicitly articulate the reason for such discomfort. One of the prominent issues seen in various literatures about the perspective of men entails how the self-image of a man is determined by the work that he does, and thus may also be associated with the issue of underutilization. In this chapter, the author explains how the results of his telephone interviews have taken on the changing roles of both men and women or the gender flux. This chapter examines issues such as the loss of control and power, loss of self-esteem and male identity, and increasing levels of sexual static.

Keywords:   gender flux, changing roles, sexual static, self-image, male identity, self-esteem, power
