  3. The Invisible Fl'neuse. Women and the Literature of Modernity.Janet Wolff - 1985 - Theory, Culture and Society 2 (3):37-46.
    The literature of modernity, describing the fleeting, anonymous, ephemeral encounters of life in the metropolis, mainly accounts for the experiences of men. It ignores the concomitant separation of public and private spheres from the mid-nineteenth century, and the increasing segregation of the sexes around that separation. The influential writings of Baudelaire, Simmel, Benjamin and, more recently, Richard Sennett and Marshall Berman, by equating the modern with the public, thus fail to describe women's experience of modernity. The central figure (...)

    Women and Employee-Elected Board Members, and Their Contributions to Board Control Tasks.Morten Huse, Sabina Tacheva Nielsen & Inger Marie Hagen - 2009 - Journal of Business Ethics 89 (4):581-597.
    We present results from a study about women and employee-elected board members, and fill some of the gaps in the literature about their contribution to board effectiveness. The empirical data are from a unique data set of Norwegian firms. Board effectiveness is evaluated in relation to board control tasks, including board corporate social responsibility (CSR) involvement. We found that the contributions of women and employee-elected board members varied depending on the board tasks studied. In the article we (...)

    Between Quality of Life and Hope. Attitudes and Beliefs of Muslim Women Toward Withholding and Withdrawing Life-Sustaining Treatments.Chaïma Ahaddour, Stef Van den Branden & Bert Broeckaert - 2018 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 21 (3):347-361.
    The technological advances in medicine, including prolongation of life, have constituted several dilemmas at the end of life. In the context of the Belgian debates on end-of-life care, the views of Muslim women remain understudied. The aim of this article is fourfold. First, we seek to describe the beliefs and attitudes of middle-aged and elderly Moroccan Muslim women toward withholding and withdrawing life-sustaining treatments. Second, we aim to identify whether differences are observable among middle-aged and elderly women’s (...)

    Narratives of Arab Anglophone Women and the Articulation of a Major Discourse in a Minor Literature.Dalal Sarnou - 2014 - International Studies. Interdisciplinary Political and Cultural Journal 16 (1):65-81.
    “It is important to stress that a variety of positions with respect to feminism, nation, religion and identity are to be found in Anglophone Arab women’s writings. This being the case, it is doubtful whether, in discussing this literary production, much mileage is to be extracted from over emphasis of the notion of its being a conduit of ‘Third World subaltern women.’” Building on Geoffrey Nash’s statement and reflecting on Deleuze and Guattari’s conceptualization of minor literature and (...)

    Immigrant Women and Domestic Violence: Common Experiences in Different Countries.Olivia Salcido & Cecilia Menjívar - 2002 - Gender and Society 16 (6):898-920.
    In this article, the authors assess the still limited literature on domestic violence among immigrant women in major receiving countries so as to begin delineating a framework to explain how immigrant-specific factors exacerbate the already vulnerable position—as dictated by class, gender, and race—of immigrant women in domestic violence situations. First, a review of this scholarship shows that the incidence of domestic violence is not higher than it is in the native population but rather that the experiences of (...)

    Women’s Empowerment and Family Planning: A Review of the Literature[REVIEW]Ndola Prata, Ashley Fraser, Megan J. Huchko, Jessica D. Gipson, Mellissa Withers, Shayna Lewis, Erica J. Ciaraldi & Ushma D. Upadhyay - 2017 - Journal of Biosocial Science 49 (6):713-743.
    SummaryThis paper reviews the literature examining the relationship between women’s empowerment and contraceptive use, unmet need for contraception and related family planning topics in developing countries. Searches were conducted using PubMed, Popline and Web of Science search engines in May 2013 to examine literature published between January 1990 and December 2012. Among the 46 articles included in the review, the majority were conducted in South Asia. Household decision-making and mobility were the most commonly examined domains of (...)’s empowerment. Findings show that the relationship between empowerment and family planning is complex, with mixed positive and null associations. Consistently positive associations between empowerment and family planning outcomes were found for most family planning outcomes but those investigations represented fewer than two-fifths of the analyses. Current use of contraception was the most commonly studied family planning outcome, examined in more than half the analyses, but reviewed articles showed inconsistent findings. This review provides the first critical synthesis of the literature and assesses existing evidence between women’s empowerment and family planning use. (shrink)

  23. "Sex" and "Gender": Two Confused and Confusing Concepts in the "Women in Corporate Management" Literature[REVIEW]Shaheen Borna & Gwendolen White - 2003 - Journal of Business Ethics 47 (2):89 - 99.
    In this article we attempt to reduce the confusion surrounding the concepts of "sex" and "gender" in the literature of "Women in Corporate Management." We contend that the incorrect usage of these concepts not only creates confusion in the literature, but also casts a shadow over the research findings in this area. We offer specific recommendations for authors as means to reduce the confusion in future research.

    Men, Women, and Friendship:: What They Say, What They Do.Karen Walker - 1994 - Gender and Society 8 (2):246-265.
    Using data from 52 in-depth interviews with working-class and professional men and women, I examine gender differences in friendships. Men and women respond to global questions about friendship in culturally specific ways. Men focus on shared activities, and women focus on shared feelings. Responses to questions about specific friends, however, reveal more variation in same-sex friendships than the literature indicates. Men share feelings more, whereas women share feelings less; furthermore, the extent to which they do (...)

    Women Farmers in Developed Countries: A Literature Review.Jennifer A. Ball - 2020 - Agriculture and Human Values 37 (1):147-160.
    Very little research into women farmers in developed countries has been produced by economists, but much of what has been studied by scholars in other disciplines has economic implications. This article reviews such research produced by scholars in all disciplines to explore to what extent women farmers are becoming more equal to men farmers and to suggest further contributions to the literature. As examples, topics that has been widely researched in developing countries but have received almost no (...)

    Of Grim Witches and Showy Lady-Devils: Wealthy Women in Literature and Film.Veronika Schuchter - 2019 - Text Matters - a Journal of Literature, Theory and Culture 9 (9):50-65.
    Imagining super rich women in the real and fictional world has long been a struggle. Those few depictions that do exist are scattered across time periods and literary genres, reflecting the legal restrictions that, at different points in time, would not allow women to accumulate assets independent of the patriarchal forces in their lives. The scarcity of extremely wealthy women in literature and film is confirmed by Forbes magazine’s list of the fifteen richest fictional characters that (...)

  29. The New Woman and ‘The Dusky Strand’: The Place of Feminism and Women's Literature in Early Jamaican Nationalism.Leah Rosenberg - 2010 - Feminist Review 95 (1):45-63.
    This essay analyzes the prominent role played by first wave feminism and by women writers between 1898-1903 as the Jamaica Times articulated a broad-based, middle class nationalism and launched a campaign to establish a Jamaican national literature. Largely overlooked, this archival material is significant because it suggests a subtle yet significant modification of anglophone Caribbean feminist, literary and nationalist historiography: first wave feminism was not introduced to Jamaica exclusively through black nationalist organizations in the late nineteenth and early (...)

  30. Patterns of Dissonance: A Study of Women and Contemporary Philosophy.Rosi Braidotti - 1991 - Polity.
    This book is a brilliant and timely analysis of the complex issues raised by the relation between women and philosophy. It offers a critical account of a wide range of contemporary philosophical and feminist texts and it develops this account into an original project of critical feminist thought. Braidotti examines contemporary French philosophy as practised by men such as Foucault and Derrida, showing that they rely on a notion of 'the feminine' in order to undermine classical thought, which bears (...)

The Tuareg data reveals both common themes and inter- and intra-cultural variations in Muslim women’s dress, thereby challenging monolithic interpretations of women’s dress (...)

    Old Wives' Tales and Philosophical Delusions: On 'the Problem of Women and African Philosophy'.Louise du Toit - 2008 - South African Journal of Philosophy 27 (4):413-428.
    This article represents a response to ‘the problem of women and African philosophy', which refers mainly to the absence of strong women's and feminist voices within the discipline of African philosophy. I investigate the possibility that African women are not so much excluded from the institutionalized discipline of philosophy, as preferring fiction as a genre for intellectual expression. This hypothesis can be supported by some feminists who read the absolute prioritisation of abstraction and generalization over the concrete (...)

    Women Entrepreneurship In Developed And Emerging Market: Evidence From The Literature In Multidimensional Way.Dr Saima Tabassum Siddiqui, Asif Hussain Samo & Kainat Meraj - 2020 - Pakistan Journal of Gender Studies 20 (1):173-194.
    The concept of entrepreneurship is widely studied and acknowledged. Over the past three decades, scholarly interest in the field of women entrepreneurship has been expanded. The phenomena of women entrepreneurship are moving towards being more specific for researcher. The purpose of this study is to collate and present a detailed analysis of literature on women entrepreneurs. The paper uses qualitative methodology that is systematic literature review SLR approach in order to critically determine and explore (...) entrepreneurs for both emerging and developed market from January 2009 to December 2018 based on five dimensions, i.e. challenges, skills, stereotypes, motivations, and financial stability. This review paper concentrates on studies published in master journal list. The study summarizes the findings of 73 articles out of these all articles, 36 articles were on emerging market and remaining 37 articles were on developed market. Findings of the study suggest that women in developing countries should focus more on consistency in their efforts when they embark on the journey of business, as the challenges and stereotypes are usually manageable. The study provides comparative overview of women entrepreneurship. It brings together coherent research literature on women entrepreneurship from multiple dimensions and thus creates a concise body to knowledge. (shrink)
