Article Review Student Name Institutional Affiliation Article Review The article to be analyzed is a research work conducted by Anderson-Gough Grey and Robson in 2005. The research analyzes gender roles that are socialized in two big audit firms in the United Kingdom. The authors examine how essential gender roles are in the socialization of workers in the audit firms. According to the researchers gender roles do not entail biological identity of being recognized by sex as either male or female (Anderson-Gough Grey & Robson 2005). The researchers state that many individual still believe that gender equality was invented by feminism to empower the women alone but that is not the case. According to the researchers gender equality especially in work places relates to both sexes and is shaped by the type of socialization in the work place. The research problem that the article tries to analyze is gendering of is that firms should assess their socialization techniques to ensure gender balance and equal opportunities to all employees irrespective of their sex. The best way to achieve gender equality is to appoint women in top positions in the organizations. Another conclusion to this research is that audit firms culture is responsible for shaping and defining expected social roles for men and women in workplace. It implies that women workers are likely to be marginalized in organizations which rely on traditional beliefs and values concerning masculinity and feminism. References Anderson-Gough F.
