Varieties of Gender Regimes

Walby, S. ORCID: 0000-0002-9696-6947 (2020). Varieties of Gender Regimes. Social Politics: International Studies in Gender, State & Society, 27(3), pp. 414-431. doi: 10.1093/sp/jxaa018


What are the varieties of gender regimes? The focus is the theory of varieties of gender regimes—domestic and public regimes; and, within the public, both neoliberal and social democratic varieties—and pathways to alternative forms. Is this model sufficient to encompass the turn to less progressive forms and multiple global regions or are further varieties needed? At stake here is the distinction between modern and premodern, public and domestic, the meaning of conservative, the concept of the family, and the theorization of violence. The article offers engagement with critics and further development of the theory.
