It is this progress which has enabled us to understand masculinities in more detail. “ Masculinities convey that there are many socially constructed definitions for being a man and that these can change over time and from place to place. (It) relates to perceived notions and ideas about how men should or are expected to behave in a given setting. Masculinity and femininity are relational concepts, which only have to mean in relation to each other. Masculinities are configurations of practice structured by gender relations. They are inherently historical, and their making and remaking is a political process affecting the balance of interests in society and the direction of social change. ” 9 Therefore, the state is more fluid in nature than it seems.
The social change as these masculinities is “ perceived notions” and if the perceptions are changed and correctly placed the balance in gender and work can be maintained. The above-mentioned developments lead us to a complex sociology of work. In any organization, there are different dynamics working which makes it complex and unpredictable. These dynamics range from the complexities created by the complexity of organizational structure, the complexity of the task being carried out, the complexity of the nature of subtasks being carried out within the same organization, and the ever existent interconnectedness of all these complexities.
Add to these complexities the complex sociology which is generated by the introduction of both genders in an organization. Although research has shown that on intellect, temperament and other personal traits, there are no measurable differences between men and women and when differences do appear, they are small in comparison to variations within each of the sexes.
The environment created by the presence of two genders who had been on a defined dominant and subservient role for ages when interacting in a set piece of environment will definitely lead to complications.
