  • “Women in groups can help each and learn from each other”: The role of
           homosocial practices within women’s social networks in building local
           gender contracts

    • Authors: Natasha Alexandra Webster, Martina Angela Caretta
      Pages: 1072 - 1097
      Abstract: Feminist scholars struggle to articulate gender relations in different contexts. Using the concept of local gender contract - a place specific agreement of gender relations, we explore how women’s networks challenge or shift gender contracts in their communities. Based on two empirical case studies of women´s groups from Eastern Africa and Thai migrants in Sweden, we show gender contracts are challenged through women’s homosocial activities. We highlight tensions between gender contracts and the women’s goals revealing a complicated process of assent and resistance. This study expands gender contract theoretically and provides a way to understand vulnerable women’s activities.

  • "I Find that What I Do Is at Total Odds..." Holistic Wellness in a Woman
           Leader Working in a Male- dominated Engineering Profession

    • Authors: Claude Helene Mayer
      Pages: 1098 - 1125
      Abstract: To explore holistic wellness in depth, single, longitudinal case studies are needed. This article explores the holistic wellness of a woman leader in the male-dominated profession of Engineering, based on the holistic wellness model (HWM). The article focuses on the question of how holistic wellness is constructed by this outstanding individual working in the challenging Australian Engineering field.The study is grounded in Dilthey's modern hermeneutics and applies a single case study design using an in-depth interview, conversations on a regular basis and observation over a period of 18 months.Findings show that the woman leader, working in the male-dominated global Australian global Engineering profession, builds and bases her holistic wellness on life tasks (work and leisure, self-direction, spirituality, friendship and love) and life forces (family, religion, community and business and industry) which are part of the holistic wellness model. Life tasks and life forces support her as she tackles challenges in life, and provide her with the coping mechanisms she needs as a woman leader in Engineering.

  • Gender, Identity, and Language Use in Web Discussion Forum and Mobile
           Phone Txt Messages

    • Authors: Chaka Chaka
      Pages: 1126 - 1151
      Abstract: This study explored and compared both online and txt (text) messaging gender and identity construction and language use among adult males and females. The online gender and identity construction and language use concerned adult males and females who participated in a web discussion forum (WDF) while the txt messaging gender and identity construction and language use related to adult male and female users of mobile technologies from South Africa. The specific WDF serving as a focal point for the study was, whereas the specific mobile technologies on which the study focused were mobile phones (MPs). Online and MP txt messaging gender and identity construction and language use were examined in terms of the disclosure of personal information, sexual identity, emotive features and semantic themes (Huffaker and Calvert 2005). Some of the findings of this study are as follows: both females and males investigated here tended to construct their identities both similarly and differently depending on the form of technology they employed; in both the WDF and MP messages, more females tended to employ emoticons than did males and the same was true of the emotive traits related to expressive language; the two genders engaged in intimate topics in varying degrees; and both genders seemed to employ passive and cooperative language (and accommodating language to some degree) very nearly similarly.

    • Authors: Vasco Hernán Vargas Muñoz, Andrea María Virginia King Domínguez
      Pages: 1152 - 1183
      Abstract: El presente estudio tuvo por objetivo validar el contenido de un instrumento de evaluación para los ámbitos gestión de personas y ambiente de trabajo incluidos en la Norma Chilena NCh3262/2012 sobre Sistema de Gestión de Igualdad de Género, Conciliación de la Vida Laboral, Familiar y Personal basado en la aplicación de un juicio de expertos bajo la variante del método delphi. Para ello, se diseñó un cuestionario con preguntas abiertas bajo la modalidad de selección múltiple, las cuales fueron sometidas a validación por un panel de expertos/as conformado por 6 profesionales que trabajan en el área de recursos humanos implementando la norma. Dicha validación se realizó a través de 2 circulaciones sucesivas considerando los atributos claridad, relevancia y coherencia para cada pregunta, tomando en cuenta para el primer atributo el Rango Intercuartílico Relativo (RIR), en tanto que la relevancia se evaluó a través del Índice de Validez de Contenido (IVC) y la coherencia por medio de la prueba estadística no paramétrica Q de Cocharn.
