Abstract: Straipsnyje diskutuojama, kaip socialinio konstravimo procese per lyčių socializaciją, habituaciją ir nematomojo, paslėptojo ugdymo programą sukuriamos horizontalios profesinių sričių segregacijos prielaidos: moterys dominuoja pagal skaičių švietimo sistemoje, socialinio darbo, slaugos, paslaugų srityje; vyrai – pramonės, technologijų, vadovavimo srityse. Aptariamas socialinių darbuotojų vyrų, dirbančių tradiciškai moteriška laikomoje socialinio darbo srityje, edukacinės patirties ir profesinio identiteto formavimosi atvejis. Biografinio tyrimo metodu atskleidžiama asmeninių naratyvų ir socialinių struktūrų kuriamų dominuojančių diskursų sąveika
Formation of the new economy in post-industrial society and neoliberal restructurization in labour market transforms the traditional gender division of labour and partly softens the extreme form of the division, i.e. segregation, in education, social work, nursing, and care. Social work continues to be treated as a feminized area of professional activity and shows a profound professional segregation into female and male professions. The study on professional identity of male social workers, presented in this article, has revealed that the process of becoming a social worker among males is a sequence of complex decisions and experiences accompanied by critical incidents and changes in their life trajectories. Such a complexity is caused by the ideal norms of hegemonic masculinity that frame the actual social structures and are introduced into the processes of socialization, formal and hidden curriculum and habituation with the aim to form the masculine habitus. The feminine and masculine habitus is formed through a symbolic and practical construction, upbringing, socialization as girls and boys adopt feminine and masculine constructs of thinking and behaviour, which are reinforced in the process of habituation. It establishes and legitimizes normative masculine and feminine biography, normative educational and career trajectories. The empirical research presented in the article has demonstrated that the masculine habitus manifests itself as the striving and attempt of male participants of the research to find their professional identity without crossing the limits of masculine normative identity. Nevertheless, the trajectories of educational experience and life events of the research participants have revealed the choice in favour of a non-traditional occupation as a defeat of the traditional gender division of labour by opposing to “normality” – by undergoing and overcoming the crisis.
