Discursive Essentializing in a Woman-Owned Business: Gendered Stereotypes and Strategic Subordination.
Edley, Paige P.
Management Communication Quarterly, v14 n2 p271-306 Nov 2000
Illustrates how the cultural practice of discursive essentializing in a woman-owned and operated business accomplished simultaneous agendas of power and resistance. Shows how the performance of gendered stereotypes, rather than having expected negative consequences, allowed organizational members to suppress conflict and to reproduce the owners' concept of the ideal workplace for women.
