  • Disagreement about Division of Household Labour and Experiences of
           Work-Family Conflict in Different Gender Regimes
    • Authors: Mikael Nordenmark
      Abstract: This article focuses on the level of disagreement about how to divide household labour as well as on the experience of work-family conflicts among cohabiting women and men living in different gender regimes. The German speaking countries Germany, Switzerland and Austria represent a typical conservative gender regime while the Scandinavian countries Sweden, Denmark and Norway are representatives of a typical egalitarian gender regime. The data used comes from the International Social Survey Program 2002. Results support the notion that people living in a context characterised by an egalitarian gender regime to a higher extent report disagreement about the division of household work and work-family conflict than people living in a context characterised by a more traditional gender regime. The results indicate that these differences can be explained by the fact that people in an egalitarian gender regime have a more egalitarian gender ideology than people in a more conservative context.

  • The Interracial Sublime: Gender and Race in Charlotte Dacre’s
    • Authors: Pramod K. Nayar
      Abstract: This essay argues that Charlotte Dacre’s Zofloya (1806) presents an interracial sublime in the form of the dissolution of the European home/family. Dacre, I suggest, traces this dissolution to the European woman’s assertion of agency by stepping outside spatial, familial, racial and sexual boundaries. In the first section it examines the crisis of European domesticity where the family and the parent/s fail in their responsibilities toward the children. In section two I suggest that within the dissolving home/family we see the European woman, Victoria, subverting further the dissolution. The arrival of the Moor within the house compounds the blurring of hierarchies and ordering. In the final section I trace the features of the interracial sublime. I conclude by proposing that Dacre’s interracial sublime serves the purpose of demonstrating the permeability of European borders – a permeability that wreaks disaster. Dacre’s tale therefore ultimately functions as a caution against the woman’s emancipated and agential actions.

  • Equality of Opportunities at Spanish Universities': Learning from the
    • Authors: Marta García Lastra, Belén Díaz Díaz
      Abstract: The relationship between women anduniversities began in Spain little more than a century ago, the moment in whichthe first female students enrolled on university courses- women who decided tobreak with the taboos of their era and to accede to this education level. Fromthat moment onward, the incorporation of women in the university sphere hasbeen a continual process that has been accompanied, in the last few decades, bymeasures based on the principle of equal opportunities between men and women.In this article we present a historical review of the presence of women in theSpanish university sphere, and the case of the measures taken by one specificuniversity (the University of Cantabria) in the wake of this principle. Weconsider that in order to recognise the wide- reaching effect of the arrival ofthese kinds of actions, it is necessary to know the important process of changeundergone in the higher education of women in the last one hundred years.

  • New Forms of Exploitation: The Synthesis of Mis-recognition and
    • Authors: Edeltraud Hanappi-Egger
      Abstract: Diversity and inclusion have become major topics in current political and economic thinking. While some practical progress has been made in combating the stigmatization and marginalization of historically discriminated groups, mal-distribution of economic resources persists. In order to devise a conceptual framework which incorporates dimensions of diversity (with respect to social categories) and equality (in terms of economically justifiable distribution of income and wealth), the paper will review the current debate on diversity and its role with respect to exploitation. It will be examined how the economic logic of Western capitalist systems is re-established in diversity studies, and suggestions for from a feminist point of view politically more astute economic approaches are proposed.
