  • Undermining Dichotomies: Women and the Peace Process in Afghanistan

    • Authors: Marissa Virginia Quie
      Pages: 1187 - 1207
      Abstract: This paper interrogates the equation of women and peace through the prism of the Afghanistan Peace and Reintegration Program (APRP). The Programme was initiated in 2010 and is scheduled to continue through 2018. It is designed to create the conditions for inclusion of the insurgency within the democratic system and provide a roadmap for peace. The APRP builds on one of the central justifications of the war: the liberation of Afghan women. It requires gender mainstreaming in accordance with United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 and subsequent Resolutions, so as to include women in all stages of the process. The APRP underscores inevitable tensions between international and local standards that purport to ensure women’s interests are protected in peacebuilding. The effort to impose gender mainstreaming on the peace process is emblematic of this tension. I argue that this effort has yielded partial gains for women who have internalized international perspectives on women’s rights, but it signifies the exclusion of those who do not. UNSCRs 1325, 1820, 1888, 1889, 1960, 2106, and 2122 assume symmetry in the positions of men and women: but fail to address the complex ways in which gender is perceived by power relations within particular societies. Considering men and women as though they confront similar obstacles reifies disparities between them. Formal numerical inclusion in the APRP, as in other political processes, has not and cannot ensure changed practices.

  • Violencia de pareja contra las mujeres en México: una mirada a la
           atención del sector salud desde una perspectiva interseccional

    • Authors: Anahely Medrano Buenrostro, Martha Miranda Muñoz, Victor Manuel Figueras Zanabria
      Pages: 1231 - 1262
      Abstract: En México, la violencia contra las mujeres es una pandemia social. La mayor parte de esta violencia se genera en el ámbito doméstico, comúnmente a manos de sus parejas. El abanico de acciones que el gobierno, y la sociedad en general, pueden poner en práctica para atender este problema es amplio; particularmente, el desempeño del sector salud en esta labor es fundamental. Ante la persistencia de este problema, el análisis de la forma en que el sector salud ha respondido al mismo resulta indispensable para diseñar políticas públicas más efectivas. El objetivo de este trabajo es analizar las diferencias en el trato que reciben las mujeres víctimas de violencia en diferentes entidades del sector salud en México, desde una perspectiva interseccional. Para ello, se realiza análisis cuantitativo con base en los datos de ENDIREH 2011. Los resultados muestran que persisten serios problemas de atención a mujeres violentadas en el sector salud. Estos problemas son generalizados entre distintos grupos de mujeres; no hay diferencias sustanciales  entre las que están en condición de pobreza o son indígenas. Estos resultados advierten sobre las implicaciones de las deficiencias registradas por parte de las instituciones públicas para el bienestar de mujeres que sufren violencia.

  • Employment, Motherhood and Wellbeing: A Discourse on the Trio within
           Public Organisations in Southwest Nigeria

    • Authors: Babatunde Joshua Omotosho
      Pages: 1263 - 1287
      Abstract: African women in public service experience some issues in their bid to juggle between their jobs and parenting; however, not much is available within the literature to explain these dynamics. This study seeks to document this by understanding their experiences, the coping strategies adopted and the implications on the respondents’ wellbeing and that of their children. For quantitative data, a total number of one hundred and sixty questionnaires were purposively administered to mothers with infants working within the selected organizations and complemented with twenty in-depth interview schedules. Findings: a majority (40.0 percent) of the respondents were aged 31-40 years. About 73.0 percent claimed their challenges include how to combine paid employment with motherhood while 26 .9 percent attributed it to finance. Respondents mentioned that their children experience diarrhoea and malaria (22.2 percent), loss of appetite and weakness (23.1 percent) while they are away to work. On the part of the mothers, 62.3 percent claimed that their major challenges are stress and in ability to focus on their work. Respondents further argued that child spacing (7.5 percent) and support from husband (17.5 percent) are part of their coping mechanisms. Working mothers need a more conducive atmosphere for career development and parenting.
