This chapter argues that the conscious study of Masculinity is needed to provide public administration scholars and practitioners with a more complete understanding of the influence of gender on public organizations. Despite the disproportionate influence of men on governance very little research consciously analyzes how their gender impacts public organizations. This chapter captures research from many fields, especially critical masculinities research and research on gendered organizations, to deliberately illuminate the influences of Masculinity on governance and public management. It recommends that researchers and public servants identify how Masculinity research is at play in public organizations and work to manage and mitigate Masculinity in public organizations.
