  • Inclusion of Women in Science. Long-term strategies for alone or with
           partners’ women

    • Authors: Ana M. González Ramos
      Pages: 459 - 482
      Abstract: Throughout history the division of gender roles has been a serious impediment for women working in science. Although they never desisted from conducting research, firstly as amateur and later as professional, they stood outside of scientific institutions and even now they hold low positions of ladder career. Women are finally in research institutions but they still need to make great efforts to achieve recognition from their colleagues and gatekeepers. Using the biographies of some contemporary scientific women, the objective of this work is to discover the role of partners at women’s professional advancement. Their partners’ role can supports, interferes or outlines professional decisions of women. This work also compares different cohorts of women scientist since a long-term approach that underlines social changes in Spanish society. Findings reveal that women need to plan very carefully work-life balance because some of the most important milestones coincide in the life-course. Social expectations regarding gender roles also mold women’s decisions even when they are professionals and totally independents. The role of partners if they both collaborate, family background, financial status, childcare facilities, workplace environments and gender policies also contribute to success of women in professional careers.

  • Gender and Careers in Astrophysical Science

    • Authors: Fabio Gaspani
      Pages: 483 - 508
      Abstract: The hard recognition of women-scientists' role is a central issue for national and supra-national institutions and organizations. Despite the growing access of women in scientific fields of study, the female presence in scientific institutes and equal career opportunities are struggling to establish themselves. These institutes refer to a gendered organizational structure able to reproduce differences in status of women and men. Focusing on the astrophysical sector, the article summarizes the results of a qualitative research that explores the role that gender plays in career paths. In fact, social and cultural practices related to gender can be considered as interpretative keys through which investigate the process of stratification and mobility and the power relations in the workplace. Within organizations, the way in which women-scientists define themselves is the result of processes that interactively act on different levels and spheres of life, and are linked to social norms and representations related to gender roles. Only re-defining the relationships that women have established with the political and social order of the scientific environment gender equality can be achieved.

  • Children Exposed to Intimate Partner Violence Against Women in Spain. A
           quantitative analysis

    • Authors: Eva Espinar-Ruiz, Begoña López-Monsalve
      Pages: 509 - 529
      Abstract: A growing number of authors have been suggesting the necessary incorporation of children in the analysis of gender violence and, specifically, in the analysis of intimate partner violence against women (IPV). Such incorporation would be relevant not only for reducing children's invisibility and vulnerability, but also for achieving a better understanding of the characteristics and dynamics of IPV. Based on these considerations, we present in this paper the results of a secondary analysis applied to the data obtained in the last Spanish Survey on Violence Against Women. The available information allows us to analyze: 1) the presence of children exposed to IPV, 2) the relationship between this presence and the probability of reporting the violence, and 3) women's perception about the parental role of the aggressors.

  • What's Critical Feminism doing in a field like Teacher Education?

    • Authors: Jennifer Gale de Saxe
      Pages: 530 - 555
      Abstract: This manuscript looks at the role that critical feminism may have within the teacher education community. The author looks at the many components that are incorporated within critical feminism, and how we may look to such a scholarship as a way to think differently about ourselves as prospective and current teachers. Throughout the manuscript, the author brings in many diverse scholars, and demonstrates how their work complements the many components of critical feminism. Specifically, the author looks to the practice of self –reflexivity, and how this practice can be strengthened through the many characteristics that encompass a critical feminist theory. The manuscript concludes with a brief discussion of considering the potential contributions that critical feminism may have within the field of teacher education.
