Changing Organisations: Gender, Bureaucracy and Culture
Article publication date: 1 May 1992
“Bureaucratic and patriarchal structures are antagonistic in many ways, yet they have in common a most important peculiarity: permanence. In this respect they are both institutions of daily routine. (…) The patriarch is the ‘natural leader’ of the daily routine. And in this respect, the bureaucratic structure is only the counter‐image of patriarchalism transposed into rationality”. (Weber in Gerth and Mills For Max Weber, 1948, p. 245).
