Empowering Senior Females By Utilizing Each Female Person's Voice To Create Desired Lifestyle Options, Icydor Aldale Mohabier Dec 2006

Empowering Senior Females By Utilizing Each Female Person's Voice To Create Desired Lifestyle Options, Icydor Aldale Mohabier

Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Theses

Interviews of senior females ranging in age from 55 through 72 were conducted between September 2004 and April 2005, in order to determine what lifestyle options this group would like made available to them. The participants represented a sample of senior females who had different backgrounds, including culture, education level, and economic circumstance. Although all the participants had very different lifestyles at the time of their interviews, most were satisfied with their current lifestyles but wanted to change something about it. The research results indicate that there are three desired lifestyle options that senior females want: socializing, improving their health ...

Gender Matters: Making The Case For Trans Inclusion, Nancy K. Knauer Dec 2006

Gender Matters: Making The Case For Trans Inclusion, Nancy K. Knauer

The University of New Hampshire Law Review

[Excerpt] “The transgender communities are producing an important and nuanced critique of our gender system. For community members, the project is self-constitutive and, therefore, has an immediacy that also marks the efforts of other marginalized groups who have attempted to make sense of the world through description, interrogation, and ultimately a program for transformation. The transgender project also has universalizing elements because, existing within the gender system, each one of us embodies a particular gender articulation. It is through this articulation that we define ourselves in relation to the gender we were assigned at birth, the gender we choose, the ...


Protecting Parent-Child Relationships: Determining Parental Rights Of Same-Sex Parents Consistently Despite Varying Recognition Of Their Relationship, Linda S. Anderson Dec 2006

Protecting Parent-Child Relationships: Determining Parental Rights Of Same-Sex Parents Consistently Despite Varying Recognition Of Their Relationship, Linda S. Anderson

The University of New Hampshire Law Review

[Excerpt] “The family and parental relationship appears secure as long as the members of the family stay within the borders of the states that recognize their relationship. What happens, though, when the family ventures beyond the borders of Vermont, Massachusetts, California, and Connecticut, has yet to be determined. Legislation in almost every other state has addressed whether each state will recognize the couples’ relationship,27 but no state has determined how it will treat the legal relationship between the children of these couples and their parents.28 This article will focus on the fragile legal relationship between same-sex parents and ...

Identidad Sexual Y Nación En Madre Que Estás En Los Cielos, De Pablo Simonetti, Andrea Parada Dec 2006

Identidad Sexual Y Nación En Madre Que Estás En Los Cielos, De Pablo Simonetti, Andrea Parada

Modern Languages and Cultures Faculty Publications

RESUMEN / ABSTRACT Este trabajo estudia la novela Madre que estás en los cielos de Pablo Simonetti como una propuesta de tolerancia e inclusión de la diferencia. A través de las memorias de la protagonista, el autor establece una cadena de identidades marginadas que se inicia con la emigración forzada de la abuela italiana a Chile a fines del siglo XIX y que se prolonga en la identidad de género y la preferencia sexual. En el caso de la mujer, el texto recupera renuncias definitorias de un devenir en la periferia de una cultural patriarcal y los amagos de negociar un ...


Work, Welfare, And Women's Role As Mothers, Pamela Fiber, Jackie Filla Nov 2006

Work, Welfare, And Women's Role As Mothers, Pamela Fiber, Jackie Filla

Journal of Interdisciplinary Feminist Thought

The demand for legal equality for women in the twentieth century has been fraught with challenges and dilemmas. While advocates for equality insisted laws preventing women from full contractual rights be eliminated and that women be compensated equally for their labor, the political and social tides swept poor women responsible for their children into the mix. In addition to the dramatic influence on social policy, the demands for market equality have been met with slow movement. Women continue to act as caretakers of the home and children, and earn significantly less than men. Attempts to change this through law are ...

Nightmare On Sesame Street: Or, The Self-Possessed Child, Steven Bruhm Oct 2006

Nightmare On Sesame Street: Or, The Self-Possessed Child, Steven Bruhm

Steven Bruhm

The late twentieth century is fascinated by the phenomenon of the gothic child, the child who manifests evil, violence, and sexual aggression. On the face of it, this evil is “caused” by either medical or social factors: medicinal drugs, radiation, or the corrupting influences of political others. However, this essay argues that the gothic child actually arises from conflicting forces of child-philosophies, the intersection of Romantic childhood innocence with Freudian depth models. These models tacitly point to a child that “is” rather than “is made”, a child that belies contemporary parental attempts to make it be otherwise. Moreover, the idea ...

The ‘We Say What We Think’ Club: Rural Wisconsin Women And The Development Of Environmental Ethics, Nancy Unger Oct 2006

The ‘We Say What We Think’ Club: Rural Wisconsin Women And The Development Of Environmental Ethics, Nancy Unger

History

The “We Say What We Think” Club: This article discusses the radio program “We Say What We Think Club” which aired on WIBA radio from 1937 to 1957. Though aimed at a female audience, it did not focus on homemaking tips or relationship advice but rather featured a topic-of-the-day. These included a wide range of subjects, such as "Better Clubs for Women" or "Feeding the Family in War Time,” about which the women held a folksy discussion. The author contends that the program reflected an increasing separation of gender spheres that emerged on farms during that era. The five Dane ...


Alienated Catholics: Establishing The Groundwork For Dialogue, Catherine M. Murphy Oct 2006

Alienated Catholics: Establishing The Groundwork For Dialogue, Catherine M. Murphy

Graduate Program in Pastoral Ministries

One of the earliest arguments against women's ordination the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops articulated in 1972 was that, since the incarnation of God was in a male, this culminates in a male priesthood. This reflects a hierarchical anthropology well-known from Christianity's earliest encounters with the Greco-Roman world, whereby the male was associated with the mind, reason, and the spirit, while the female was associated with the body, passion, and the material world.1 In fact, some Greek doctors and philosophers thought that every fetus began as a male, but those that didn't develop fully became ...

First Things First: Writing Strategies--Drops Of Blood, Marilyn L. Grady Oct 2006

First Things First: Writing Strategies--Drops Of Blood, Marilyn L. Grady

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

Recently, I was gifted with the best writing quotation of the season. It follows. "I don't know how many times I read this Gene Fowler quote: 'Writing is easy. All you do is stare at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead'" (Weinberg, 2006, p. 8). The quote captures the truth of the writing enterprise. It isn't easy. In fact, if you don't bleed a little and feel some pain, you aren't putting enough effort into your work. There are a slew of adages about effort and work. All hold ...

If you sit and listen long enough, you can identify recurrent patterns of communication in organizational settings. I am struck by two communication models I observe repeatedly that involve women's voices in meetings.


Women In History--Sarah Winnemucca: Native Educator And Human Rights Advocate, Bernita L. Krumm Oct 2006

Women In History--Sarah Winnemucca: Native Educator And Human Rights Advocate, Bernita L. Krumm

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

On March 1,2005, Congressman Jon Porter of Nevada addressed Congress on a bill to allow for the placement of a statue of Sarah Winnemucca into the National Statutory Hall. "Sarah led an incredible life," Porter asserted, adding that Winnemucca "has become a part of Nevada history that will never be forgotten" (Porter, 2005). One of only eight women represented in the National Statutory Hall Collection, Winnemucca was a spokesperson and advocate for Indian rights. Her autobiography, Life Among the Piutes, the first published book by a Native American woman, relates the story of white settlement from the Native American ...

Voices Of Women In The Field--I'M Glad No One Told Me . ..., Misty Schwartz

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

Prior to beginning my current position, I'm glad no one told me that many women find the academy unappealing, with a chilly environment that can be biased and hostile toward women. I'm glad no one told me that I may suffer from intellectual and social isolation that is brought about by the masculine principles of competition and individualism that often occur in institutions of higher education. I'm glad no one told me that I will have little guidance from my peers due to a lack of mentors and that I may be expected to compromise my personal ...

The Role Of Gender And How It Relates To Conflict Management Style And School Culture, Chris Harriet Blackburn, Barbara N. Martin, Sandy Hutchinson Oct 2006

The Role Of Gender And How It Relates To Conflict Management Style And School Culture, Chris Harriet Blackburn, Barbara N. Martin, Sandy Hutchinson

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

This investigation focused on principals, by gender, and the impact that the principals' conflict management style had on cultural aspects in schools. Findings were: principals with a conflict management style that is high in dominating show lower school culture scores in professional development, and, conversely, principals with a conflict management style that is high in initiating indicate higher school culture scores in teacher collaboration. When split by gender, the findings were: male principals whose conflict management style is dominating receive lower school culture scores in teacher collaboration, while female principals whose conflict management style was viewed as integrating receive higher ...


Female Superintendents: Historic Barriers And Prospects For The Future, Stephen K. Miller, Youlanda C. Washington, Jeanna R. Fiene Oct 2006

Female Superintendents: Historic Barriers And Prospects For The Future, Stephen K. Miller, Youlanda C. Washington, Jeanna R. Fiene

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

This paper addresses the historic under representation of female superintendents. The primary focus is the legacy of discrimination, in which the barriers to female advancement in a traditionally male field are described. Particular attention is given to three different models of male dominance that have been developed to explain how and/or why women have been excluded from top positions in educational administration. In part two, recognition of the importance of women's contributions to evolving theory in educational administration and a description of the feminine leadership model is offered, wherein women utilize flexible web-like structures, empower others, and prioritize ...


Recruiting And Retaining Women Faculty In Science And Engineering, Dorothy Brockopp, Mindy Isaacs, Pam Bischoff, Kimberly Millerd Oct 2006

Recruiting And Retaining Women Faculty In Science And Engineering, Dorothy Brockopp, Mindy Isaacs, Pam Bischoff, Kimberly Millerd

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

The purpose of this project was to assess the perceived efficacy of university-based activities designed to improve the recruitment and retention of women in academic science and engineering (S&E). Numerous approaches to recruitment and retention have been described and implemented but little change occurs. An evaluation of suggested activities by 35 S&E women faculty was conducted using quantitative and qualitative methods. Eight of 25 activities were strongly recommended by participants as effective strategies related to recruitment and retention. Mentoring, as frequently operationalized, was not found to be effective. Several recommendations are offered to improve the system of mentoring.
