Donaldson, M & Howson, R, Men, migration and hegemonic masculinity, in Donaldson, M, Hibbins, R, Howson R & Pease, B (ed) Migrant Men: Critical Studies of Masculinities and the Migration Experience, Routledge, 2009, 210-217. Original publisher information available here
While migrant men may renegotiate the patriarchal dividend after resettlement in Australia, fundamental elements of their gendered behaviour and beliefs remain unchanged, and may even be reinforced. In particular, working hard in a paying job and doing so for the family while guiding and protecting it, are very strong practices and beliefs that migrant men both bring with them from their homelands, and encounter on their arrival. This cannot be a product of chance or an historical accident, but must reflect resilient underlying structures existent in private and public life.
