Gender Differentiation In Paid And Unpaid Work During The Transition To Parenthood, 2017 John Carroll University
Gender Differentiation In Paid And Unpaid Work During The Transition To Parenthood, Medora W. Barnes
Medora W. Barnes
The transition to parenthood may be especially difficult because relationships need to be largely reorganized to meet demanding new challenges. For scholars interested in gender inequality, the transition to parenthood is a critical time in which gender differentiation is generated by both economic and cultural forces. Although newly married childless couples tend to share both paid and unpaid labor rather equally, when men and women become parents, their patterns become increasingly differentiated by gender. Cultural beliefs that emphasize mothers as the primary parent and fathers as secondary reinforce unequal patterns in housework and childcare. Time availability models, bargaining perspectives, and ...
Tragedy, Outrage & Reform: Crimes That Changed Our World: 1983 – Thurman Beating - Domestic Violence, 2017 University of Pennsylvania Law School
Tragedy, Outrage & Reform: Crimes That Changed Our World: 1983 – Thurman Beating - Domestic Violence, Paul H. Robinson, Sarah M. Robinson
Can a crime make our world better? Crimes are the worst of humanity’s wrongs but, oddly, they sometimes do more than anything else to improve our lives. As it turns out, it is often the outrageousness itself that does the work. Ordinary crimes are accepted as the background noise of our everyday existence but some crimes make people stop and take notice – because they are so outrageous, or so curious, or so heart-wrenching. These “trigger crimes” are the cases that this book is about.
They offer some incredible stories about how people, good and bad, change the world around ...
The Influence Of Parental Communication About Sexual Health On Quality Of Emerging Adult Romantic Relationships, 2017 University of Southern Mississippi
The Influence Of Parental Communication About Sexual Health On Quality Of Emerging Adult Romantic Relationships, Jaclyn D. Powers
The research on relationships between parent-child communication about sexuality and sexual communication between adult partners is currently lacking. The current study aims to examine the influence of parent-child sexual communication on adult sexual communication when those children reach adulthood and engage in romantic relationships. Parent-child sexual communication, attachment styles, sexual attitudes, and partner sexual communication were examined for influence on the physical and emotional relationship satisfaction of emerging adults. Study 1 included a quantitative analysis with 553 emerging adults participating in an online survey, and study 2 incorporated a qualitative analysis with an additional 7 emerging adults participating in online ...

The Impact Of Supportive Parenting On Career Confidence Of Young Adults, Salma Ettefagh
UNLV Theses, Dissertations, Professional Papers, and Capstones
Despite freedoms for women in modern economies, there remains a large disparity between female graduation rates and women achieving high-ranking positions in the business world. Confidence may be one factor why women are underrepresented in the executive class.This
exploratory research investigated if supportive parenting has an effect on self-reported career confidence among undergraduates. A quantitative ANOVA analysis found that instrumental support factors (for example, money and tuition) overall were significant in predicting performance-based confidence, particularly for males. However, qualitative results showed that supportive parenting and confidence are not always correlated.

A Qualitative, Exploratory Case Study Of Self-Reported Influences Affecting The Decision Of Homeless Sexual-Minority Students To Leave Home, Michael P. Hill
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
This study was designed to identify commonalities regarding influences within the decision-making process that attributed to sexual-minority students voluntarily or involuntarily becoming homeless in lieu of remaining in their respective familial home. An exploratory case-study research design was utilized to determine common themes present in the self-described events that led up to the respective decisions of three volunteer participants, who identified themselves as sexual-minority youths at the time of transition, to leave home. Results of this study discerned five commonalities among the participants’ experiences, which influenced their experiencing homelessness. The detection of these commonalities may provide school administrators and other ...

Exploring Men's Motivations And Restraints In Repeated Extramarital Sex, 2017 Missouri State University - Springfield
Exploring Men's Motivations And Restraints In Repeated Extramarital Sex, Casey Marie Stinley
MSU Graduate Theses
The influence of extramarital sex (EMS) on marriage has been a topic of discussion in the research community for over 30 years. This thesis explored the influences that drive the EMS participants’ decisions, whether to abstain, continue while in the marriage, or to leave the marriage, and, those influences that affect whether they later participate in EMS or not. This study also used individual semi-structured interviews of ex-husbands who have participated in EMS in the past, as well as husbands who are participating in EMS currently. The four men interviewed were from southwest Missouri. The interviews were reviewed to identify ...
The Impact Of Social Situations On College Students’ Perceptions Of Sexual Consent, 2017 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville
The Impact Of Social Situations On College Students’ Perceptions Of Sexual Consent, Casey Jane Ward
Theses and Dissertations
The majority of research examining sexual consent among college students focuses on how young adults communicate sexual consent during interactions immediately preceding a sexual encounter. However, preliminary research suggests that college students perceive that individuals begin to communicate sexual consent within social settings (e.g., at a bar) and through nonsexual interactions (e.g., text messaging); this has been labeled “outside the bedroom” consent. In order to further explore “outside the bedroom” consent, college students (n= 789) were randomly assigned to read four of sixteen vignettes. Within each vignette, four variables were manipulated: gender of the initiator (male or female ...

Trans And Non-Binary Students Navigating Relationships, 2017 The College at Brockport
Trans And Non-Binary Students Navigating Relationships, Lucky Summer Light
This research involves understanding the complex ways Trans and Non-binary students navigate interpersonal relationships. Much research has been done on the positive impacts of enrolling students with diverse cultural and social identities. However, there is a lack of research that seeks to understand if Trans and Non-binary students are thriving on campus so that we can be certain how Trans and Non-binary students are doing. This project is conducted by a literature review to better understand the contribution of gender diversity to university campuses alongside understanding the complex and diverse experiences of Trans and Non-binary students.

Introduction To A Special Issue On Inequality In The Workplace (“What Works?), Pamela S. Tolbert, Emilio J. Castilla
Pamela S Tolbert
[Excerpt] While overt expressions of racial and gender bias in U.S. workplaces have declined markedly since the passage of the original Civil Rights Act and the creation of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission a half century ago (Eagly and Chaiken 1993; Schuman, Steeh, Bobo, and Krysan 1997; Dobbin 2009), a steady stream of research indicates that powerful, if more covert forms of bias persist in contemporary workplaces (Greenwald and Banaji 1995; Pager, Western, and Bonikowski 2009; England 2010; Heilman 2012). In line with this research, high rates of individual and class-based lawsuits alleging racial and gender discrimination suggest that ...

Empowerment Through Education: A Comparative Study Of Gender Equality In Schools In Brazil And The United States, 2017 Marian University - Indianapolis
Empowerment Through Education: A Comparative Study Of Gender Equality In Schools In Brazil And The United States, Elizabeth Hilt
With a grant and a fun group of feminist scholars who were interested in studying cultural and legal Brazilian equality, I packed my suitcase and headed to Brazil for 10 days of intense research. I am a recent graduate of Marian University in Indianapolis, with a future as a high school psychology and government teacher, and as such I was interested in the question of gender equality within the classroom setting. I had originally set out to study the inclusion of women in the history curriculum and classroom specifically, but due to our schedule and the pull of the Brazilian ...
The Media's Impact On Beauty And The Sexualization Of Women, 2017 Marian University - Indianapolis
The Media's Impact On Beauty And The Sexualization Of Women, Maresa E. Kelly
This paper compares the sexualization of Brazilian women and women from the United States. By juxtaposing the standard of beauty in Brazil to the standard of beauty in the States, comparisons could be made between what men, women, and the media consider “beautiful”, and how the definition changes between these groups. In order to reach a conclusion, participant observation was done in various regions of Brazil, during which student interviews took place.
Queer People In Brazil And The United States: Bridging The Gap, 2017 Marian University - Indianapolis
Queer People In Brazil And The United States: Bridging The Gap, Kayla Bledsoe
The LGBT+ community is generally grouped into one big group with all the same needs by media, organizations, and people. However, LGBT+ people have different concerns and needs based on age, race, ability, and so many other identities to which they can also fall under. Additionally, gender and sexual diversity greatly differ in needs within the community. This research focuses on the history of social movements for, and politics concerning primarily cisgender women of a sexual minority (lesbian, bisexual, etc.) in America and Brazil. Traditional research methods were primarily used to discover the reality of queer people in America, such ...

The Effects Of Communication, Gender, And Sexism On Dating Initiations, Alexandra Marie Buscaglia
Masters Theses & Specialist Projects
The purpose of this study was to increase understanding of the initial screening process that occurs during dating interactions, and to measure the perceptions of different communication styles that individuals use during such interactions. A review of current literature focused on attractiveness of potential mates, ambivalent sexism theory, gender stereotypes, and communication theory. The present study examined how individuals view others’ approaches in initial dating interactions, and which of these approaches are most effective for increasing the target’s interest in spending time with the pursuer. A pilot study involving 45 undergraduate psychology students from Western Kentucky University was conducted ...
Personality Factors, Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior, And Sexual Fantasy As Predictors Of Paraphilic Disorder Intensity, 2017 Western Kentucky University
Personality Factors, Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior, And Sexual Fantasy As Predictors Of Paraphilic Disorder Intensity, Ethan Jack Edwards
Masters Theses & Specialist Projects
Researchers vary on their definitions of paraphilia. A difference exists between an individual possessing a paraphilia versus an individual possessing a paraphilic disorder. Hanson (2010) proposed a dimensional model of sexual deviance that includes a measure of intensity. However, research on sexual intensity has been lacking. A majority of existing research focuses on the potential risk factors of possessing a paraphilia or paraphilic disorder (e.g., criminality). There is less focus on whom in the population has the potential to develop a paraphilia; or which factors predict paraphilic behavior.
The Big Five personality factors (openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness ...
