Abstract

One of the newer areas of research into masculinities, as Bob Connell points out in The Men and the Boys, is a focus on “how masculinities are constructed by global forces and how men, in all their diversity, are positioned in global society” (2000, 33). Connell, among other researchers, has argued that international relations, international trade, and global markets are inherently arenas of gender formation, and that “we can recognize the existence of a world gender order, " which he goes on to define as “the structure of relationships that connect the gender regimes of institutions, and the gender orders of local society, on a world scale” (pp. 40-1).
