English Abstract

This study analyses the relationship between gender and work alienation in the nursing sector in Palestinian hospitals.

While the prior literature considers differences in work alienation between the biological gender, this study assesses the association between gender performativity and work alienation while controlling for a variety of sociodemographic and work-related variables among male and female nurses working in five public hospitals in Palestine.

A mixed methods design was utilized starting with qualitative interviews with 21 nurses and three focus groups, followed by a quantitative survey distributed to 376 nurses.

The results of the bivariate cross-tabulation and multivariate logistic regressions show that gender performativity affects alienation.

Females who follow the gendered scripts experience a sense of subordination, marginalization, and weakness that negatively affects their feeling at work and leads them to have a higher sense of work alienation than females who do not perform their gendered roles.

However, gender performativity gives males a sense of superiority, strength and dominance that is also reflected in their feelings at work and leads them to have lower rates of feeling alienated compared with males who do not perform their gendered roles.
