The major traditions of organizational analysis have not been characterized by a significant and explicit concern with gender, sexuality, and violence. This article considers some of the changing ways in which gender and sexuality are being approached, or indeed avoided, within organizational analysis, and some of the reasons why a focus on gender and sexuality might lead on to the study of the relationship of violence and organizations. This argument is elaborated through the identification of significant questions that need to be addressed in the study of violence and organizations, the illustration of some of these through a case study, and an evaluation of the potentials and limitations of this “violence” perspective for organizational analysis.
