  • Accra turns lives around: female migrant traders and their empowerment
           experiences in Accra, Ghana.

    • Authors: Charlotte Wrigley Asante
      First page: 341
      Abstract: This paper examines young female migrants working as petty traders in the Accra Metropolitan Area. It discusses the processes through which female migrant traders as economic actors have used migration and trading as pathways to empower themselves through an analysis of their control over material and non-material resources, their choices in life and their ability to influence the direction of change. The author argues that young female migrants must not be looked at only in the context of vulnerability but rather seen as agents of change and people who can change their life circumstances, that of their families and make life choices. Facilitation of measures by relevant stakeholders to support the efforts of these female migrant traders as positive agents of change is recommended.

  • Gender biased representation in learning materials in Nigeria educational

    • Authors: Abolaji Samuel Mustapha
      First page: 368
      Abstract: Educational processes and practices have long been recognised as reproducing those gender relations that society endorses – its gender ideology. In this study, we examine educational materials that are used in Nigerian educational system for the gender ideology that they tend to reflect and reinforce. Content analysis and discourse mode were used to analyse seven widely used English Language textbooks for Junior Secondary School students in Nigeria. Findings reveal over-representation of males in the public sphere, especially in a range of professions, politics, requisite qualities, accomplishments, and contributions, on the one hand. Women, on the other hand, are overrepresented in the private sphere of home, as mothers and wives. Thus, males are rendered more visible in the public sphere than females; the latter are rendered more visible in the home sphere than males who are rarely represented in that domain. These findings indicate gender-biased learning materials that might be inimical to achieving gender equality in and through education consequently suggesting that these learning materials might be long overdue for reform to reflect gender fairness that is in consonance with Nigeria’s National Gender Policy goals.

  • Islamic attitudes and the support for Gender Equality and Democracy in
           Seven Arab Countries, and the role of anti-­‐Western feelings

    • Authors: Niels Spierings
      First page: 423
      Abstract: In the societal and scientific discussions about the support for democracy and gender equality in the Arab Middle East, this study engages the triangular theory, which predicts that Islamic orientations influence gender equality attitudes and democracy negatively, and attitudes towards gender equality are also expected to lead to more democratic support, partly channelling the influence of Islam. This theory was tested on Arab Barometer data for seven countries, including three different dimensions of Islamic-religious identity: affiliation, piety, and political-Islamist attitudes. The analyses roughly back the triangular model, but for democratic support only the Islamist values seem important, partly working through economic gender equality attitudes. Attitudes towards women’s position in politics and education seem unrelated to democratic support. In addition, this study applies the gender and postcolonial concept of ‘othering’ to the triangular model. Theoretically it predicts that in the current neo-colonial era, anti-Western feelings might create more Islamic and less democracy and gender equal attitudes simultaneously, making Islam’s impact partly spurious. Empirically, this is modestly supported for the Islamist-democracy link only. However, anti-Western feelings do relate to gender equality, democratic support, and religious attitudes, and deserves more attention when studying democracy and gender equality in the Arab Middle East.
