  • Are the Dispossessed More Battered'

    • Authors: Yamini V. John et al.
      Abstract: Intimate partner domestic violence hinders the well-being and development of women and transfers its ill effects intergenerationally. It is widely reported that economic fallback options help women escape intimate partner violence (IPV), enhance their ability to recuperate, and enable economic opportunity and independence. This study attempts to understand and re-examine the link between intimate partner domestic violence and the ownership of property among women in 14 districts of the Southern Indian state, Kerala. The Women Protection Officers of Kerala (WPO) served as resourceful informants. These officers are the first action force to facilitate domestic violence complaints under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 India. Primary data has been collected through interviews with WPOs. Six practising advocates shared information on the cases where they restored ownership of assets and facilitated locating the women for the twelve case studies. The findings reveal how women get dispossessed of their assets and are further subjected to domestic violence for want of assets. Women who managed to hold on to their assets were found to overcome and recuperate from domestic violence, and autonomous ownership of these assets boosted their self-esteem and recovery. The paper highlights the need for revisiting policy decisions regarding the property rights of women.

  • Exploring Gender Dynamics in Rural Tuna Fishing Communities in the Lagonoy
           Gulf, Philippines

    • Authors: Astrid Ocampo et al.
      Abstract: Women’s contributions to rural fisheries in the Philippines are often overlooked and unrecognized. The “invisibility” of women is primarily a factor of prevailing traditional views on fishing as a male-occupied industry. Gaps in understanding the role of women in the sector may risk implementing interventions that poorly capture their needs as important players in the fisheries value chain. Developing holistic and integrated solutions becomes crucial as rural fishing communities are highly vulnerable to food and economic insecurity, aggravated by external crises and a rapidly changing climate. This study identifies and assesses the factors and motivations on the gender dynamics in the rural tuna fishing communities in the Lagonoy Gulf, Philippines. Focus-group discussions and key-informant interviews were conducted with 120 male and female respondents across six (6) of the 15 municipalities in the Lagonoy Gulf, tuna federation leaders, and female group savings association officers. Results of the study emphasize the traditional heteronormative structures that still influence household and community dynamics in Lagonoy Gulf. Women are active as ancillary workers, holding key responsibilities in marketing the harvest to local traders and markets and engaging in profit-saving activities. However, these roles are seen only as support and are not recognized to merit the participation of women in community decision-making. This perception also reflects disparities at the household level, where women are expected to assume household and childcare work. However, women recognize these functions as a source of empowerment, upholding their skill to handle multiple occupations to service their devotion to their family. They also highly regard their skill in financial custodianship, seeking means to address their family’s financial problems. Lack of opportunities for women equally bears unhealthy expectations for men to remain the breadwinner despite struggles to reap economic benefits. Both men and women in Lagonoy Gulf echo the aspiration for women to earn to help address family poverty. This study emphasizes the need for institutional support to ensure gender-based strategies in the communities, including opening pathways for women to secure decent work and increasing their participation in local fisheries governance.

  • Moms Too Soon: Status and Challenges of Teenage Mothers--Implications for
           Exension

    • Authors: Jacinta Pueyo
      Abstract: Teenage pregnancy is a worldwide phenomenon that affects girls as young as 10. The present qualitative study answers these questions: what are the lived experiences of young mothers at the University of Southern Mindanao' and what are the challenges faced by these young mothers' The phenomenological research design was used in this study. Due to data saturation, a total of twenty-five data sources were involved in the study. The transcribed data were coded and inductively analyzed to determine the themes and sub-themes that described the lived experiences of the girls. Thematic themes include 1. Coming of Age: The Metamorphosis, 2. Becoming a Mother, 3. Supportive Mechanism, and 4. Rebuilding Dreams through Education: Grit and Gut. Cultural and social practices include: liberal and loose relationships, easy acceptance of teenage pregnancy by the family, curiosity, and technology use. Their challenges were physiological, psychological, and financial. It is recommended that the results may be translated into an extension program that will benefit the young people at the University of Southern Mindanao.

  • Rethinking Gender in Translation

    • Authors: Khaoula Jaoudi
      Abstract: The mediator between people all over the world is language, and translation is the means by which we can cross borders. Translation can play an important role in moving towards a common livable world of coexistence and transnationality. Feminist translation theory emerged from the shared struggle women and translation experience; it criticizes the concepts that place both women and translation at the bottom of the literary and social scale. “La liberation des femmes passé par le language” is a famous saying among women of the 1970s feminist movement which indicates that women must be first liberated from language. And since translation is made of language, it is considered by feminist thought to be the best field in which they can nourish language. A critique of sexism in language goes through several stages: it corrects the vocabulary, examines the feminine symbols in language, and gives voice to gender in language since gendered language is responsible for creating misinterpretations. Hence, in this paper, I am going to examine the intersection between feminism and translation. I will investigate how feminist translation can give birth to reformist recreations of an original text that is dominantly masculine by recovering the feminine that is obscured and made invisible by masculine grammar. In addition, I will also discuss how translation gives another life to the original text by using different strategies to make gender visible in the text’s language so that women can be heard. Finally, I am going to discuss women’s translation of the sacred by comparing two feminist translations of the Quran.

  • Women's Struggles in the Kashmiri Militancy War

    • Authors: Devina Neogi
      Abstract: Kashmir is located in the northern part of India in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Kashmir has been a hotbed of violence since India’s independence. For the past 51 years, there has been an intense conflict between the locals of Kashmir and India’s Military Force, which has directly or indirectly affected the lives of millions of people. One of the most affected communities is the women in Kashmir. History provides us with the scare chronicle of gendered experiences in political violence. Women's experiences bring to light the heterogeneity of the experiences of subgroups caught in a conflict situation. Over time, the women of Kashmir have fought a long battle against the military. Further, the women of Kashmir have been hit by physical violence by both security and the military forces. This research paper tries to understand the struggle of women during the military war in the state of Kashmir. In this research paper, a critical analysis of reported incidents and cases has been studied to understand the struggle of women in the Kashmir valley. This paper examines the accounts of violence among women in Kashmir through the same lens by reviewing relevant literature. The research paper aims to propose policy interventions through findings from secondary literature.

  • The Sexual Politics of the Manusmriti: A Critical Analysis with Sexual and
           Reproductive Health Rights Perspectives

    • Authors: Naseera N. M. et al.
      Abstract: The choice of women for reproduction and their free expression of sexuality in India are not separate from religious or cultural beliefs. The ancient legal text, The Manusmriti and its law codes had a significant role in creating the Brahmanic Patriarchy, the caste system, and the heteronormative structures of Ancient India. Under the British, the text became instrumental in constructing a complex system of jurisprudence in which ‘general law’ was supplemented by ‘personal law’ determined by one’s religious affiliation. The present study using the qualitative research method, analyses the sexual politics of The Manusmriti from women’s Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (SRH Rights) perspective. Instead of the original Sanskrit text, the English translation of The Manusmriti by Wendy Doniger and Brian. K. Smith was taken for the textual analysis and attempted an interpretive analysis of the specific verses coming under the selected six categories. Several of the Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights of women related to the right to bodily integrity, marriage rights, right to contraception, right to divorce, etc., are denied as per the injunctions prescribed in the text. Women are portrayed as sexually promiscuous, secret, sly, and out to capture men. Their bodies are frequently objectified and more often devalued as eliciting disgust. The authors connect the implications of the findings with the present status of women’s sexual and reproductive rights in Indian society and highlight the need for re-reading the religious and cultural texts with a human rights /gender perspective.

  • "You Cannot e What You Cannot See": The Lived Experiences of Women
           Teaching Digital Literacy in Bosnia & Herzegovina and Germany

    • Authors: Lorraine J. Hayman
      Abstract: This timely paper provides empirical evidence on the lived experiences of ten women from eight nationalities in Bosnia & Herzegovina and Germany, who voluntarily taught girls and women digital skills in 2020. I situated this multi-case feminist study within the digital skills gender divide phenomenon. I collected qualitative data through surveys and interviews with the teachers, remote observations of their digital skills lessons, and analysis of programme documents, including curricula. In this paper, I discuss two research questions: (1) “What motivated the women to teach digital literacy'” and (2) “Why do the teachers think the digital skills gender divide exists'” The hybrid approach to data coding and thematic analysis indicated that the teachers were motivated to teach digital literacy to support their students’ self-development and use digital skills in their daily lives. The teachers at the school in Germany were also motivated by advancing their social capital and societal integration, as six of the eight women teaching in Germany were migrants. The teachers from Bosnia & Herzegovina were motivated by overcoming the systemic gender inequality that the digital skills gender divide encapsulates. The teachers also identified various personal, community, and societal causes of the digital skills gender divide. On the micro-level, they noted that girls engage in risk avoidance behaviour from a young age, limiting their digital skills development. On the meso-level, women lack exposure to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) within their families and communities. On the macro-level, the teachers in Bosnia & Herzegovina highlighted that girls living in urban areas could access ICT more often than those living in rural areas. This paper offers resolutions to the digital skills gender divide, concluded from the teachers’ evidence, such as educational opportunities, gender diversity hiring in technical roles in the ICT sector, and policy development to underpin solutions and incentivise compliance. This paper is my contribution to centralising in the scholarship the lived experiences and perspectives of diverse women who are at the forefront of the digital skills gender divide.

  • Introduction to the Special Issue: Transnational Feminisms: Contexts,
           Collaborations, Contestations--Toward a Liveable Planet

    • Authors: Bhushan Sharma et al.
      Abstract: The prime goal of feminism is to raise consciousness and bring about transformation for a gender-equitable world. The movement has continuously been broadening its perspective and undergoing transitions, producing ‘cartographies of knowledge and power’ (Alexander and Mohanty 2015). As the creation of feminist epistemology and knowledge exchange is key to this process, The International Institute of Knowledge Management (TIIKM) has taken the initiative to organize the World Conference on Women Studies (WCWS) every year.The 7th WCWS was organized amidst the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic that took place online from the 20th to 22nd of May 2021. The theme of the conference—“Transnational Feminisms: Contexts, Collaborations, Contestations: Toward a Liveable Planet”—draws from postcolonial feminist theories and transnational feminist practice that is involved in activist movements across the globe that work together to comprehend the role of gender, race, class, sexuality, and the state in critiquing and resisting patriarchal structures and capitalist powers. Transnational feminists focus on the diverse experiences of women who live within, between, and at the margins of nation-states around the globe; they rise above the boundaries and speak to a wider intersecting force impacting gendered relationships and experiences. According to Margaret A. McLaren (2017), transnational feminism results in ‘decolonizing feminism’ and Sylvanna M. Falcón (2016) calls it a ‘Paradigm for Decolonizing the Practice of Research.’

  • An Empirical Analysis of Life Satisfaction in Adolescent Development in
           High- and Middle-income Countries

    • Authors: Amirreza Kazemikhasragh
      Abstract: The income discrepancies in high- and middle-income countries increases stress, limitations in access to social resources, and aggravates health situations. The empirical analysis of this experimental study studies the relationship between parental income inequality in early life and health and life satisfaction of adolescents. This study uses empirical data from the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) to study school-age children health behaviour symptoms in high- and middle-income countries in the years 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014. The research uses macro variables and the income inequality index from the World Bank. The analysis of the Gini coefficient was carried out among high- and middle-income countries. In this sense, the results show that income gaps prevail in households, directly impacting adolescent development. Therefore, improving inequality remains the pending issue in most high- and middle-income countries and meets the poverty reduction goals established by the SDGs of the 2030 agenda. This research aims to reduce the existing gaps in addressing income inequality.

  • Tobacco Farming, Addiction, Promotion of Gender Equality, Well-being and
           Monopoly of the Indian Market

    • Authors: Ranjit Singha et al.
      Abstract: Women's land rights are still suppressed in India because men hold most of the land, and men decide what crops to grow. Tobacco use and farming are both detriments to one’s health. It causes cancer, and cancer treatment is unavailable in the majority of India's remote areas. On the other hand, tobacco is grown in remote regions of India, and cancer hospitals are concentrated in major cities. There are eight states in India's north-eastern region, but only one cancer treatment facility in Guwahati, Assam. There is a need for new cancer hospitals in the north-eastern part of the country, where there is just one cancer hospital for eight states. Mindfulness training and tobacco harmful effects awareness education should be integrated into the educational curriculum and community centres. The school curriculum should include more mindfulness and psychoeducation about tobacco's detrimental effects. The pandemic situation in India and elsewhere make any community-based response difficult right now. Some parts of India, such as A&I Island, the North-Eastern region of India, and J&K, lack high-speed internet connectivity; therefore, radio, television, audio CDs, audio files, recorded videos, reading materials, and cell phones may be the best ways to reach out. Internet-based outreach is another option. A non-governmental organisation (NGO) or other organisation would be required to create regional language reading material, audio files, and video files. Given the global pandemic crisis, such programmes must be put in place as soon as possible. A team of specialists, regional language experts, local cultural experts, and volunteers would be needed to achieve these objectives.

  • Diverging Women on the Mommy Track to the Career Track

    • Authors: Sunaina Arora et al.
      Abstract: The review paper discusses the Mommy Track phenomenon and interventions required to bring women back on the career track. It collates the literature to understand the Mommy Track phenomenon from organisations and economic perspectives. The Mommy Track is a path which is taken by high performing women to take a career break in order to rear children. The idea is to switch back to career tracks when childcare duties require less time. Gender parity initiatives have tried to bridge male and female labour gaps to bring back women to career tracks. Changes in government interventions, organisation policies, and individual attitudes will create an equitable future for all. Policy makers should keep an eye on protecting the issues of the Mommy Track with laws to help women come back to career tracks, with a focus on parental leave, family friendly policies, hour work policies, and regulated childcare.

  • Social Inclusion, Equality, Leadership, and Diversity to Attain
           Sustainable Development Goal 5 in the Indian Banking Industry

    • Authors: Surjit Singha et al.
      Abstract: The UN SDG 5 aspires to end all kinds of bigotry and abuse of women, although gender bias still exists in India. Most bank employees are men; few women hold senior positions in India's banking industry because of the country's early history of limiting chances for women to enter the profession. The solution to this is to hire women in leadership positions from international locations if the banking sector opens. The development of the banking industry in India relies on the best talent. The banking sector must open its position for multinational expatriates to maintain diversity and bring forth the inclusivity of a multi-talented global workforce. The concept of liberalization, privatization, and globalization in the Indian context is limited. Privatization and globalization can only be anticipated if they have a multicultural workforce within the country and globally.

  • Entrepreneurial Competencies in Graduate Students from Mexico: A Gender
           Perspective

    • Authors: Eduardo R. Diaz
      Abstract: Mexico faces a gender gap in opportunity entrepreneurship. Part of the problem is the masculine approach to business education in graduate programs. This research uses data from 173 female and male graduate students to compare self-efficacy levels in entrepreneurship and leadership. The data were collected under a cross-sectional, survey research design. Findings suggest that there were no statistically significant differences between females and males in five entrepreneurship and two leadership dimensions. Statistically significant differences were identified in one entrepreneurship dimension: initiating relationships with investors. A key takeaway is that females undervalue their ability to secure funds for entrepreneurial purposes.

  • Are Unpaid Women Willing to Work in the Labour Market' Evidence from
           India

    • Authors: Krishna M.
      Abstract: India has set an ambitious target of achieving a US$5 trillion economy by 2025. However, a steady increase, perhaps even more rapid in recent years, in women’s participation in unpaid domestic work poses a grave threat to India’s economic development. Significantly, the extent of women’s participation in unpaid domestic work ballooned in India, recording a quantum leap from 200 million in 2004–05 to 287 million in 2017–18. The main aim of this paper is to examine the role of socio-economic factors in explaining the willingness of unpaid women to undertake work in the labour market, using data from unit-level records of employment and unemployment and labour force surveys. This study shows that, despite engaging in routine household chores, about one-third of unpaid women are willing to take up work in the labour market. Moreover, the majority of women engaged in unpaid domestic work in India have no choice but to do this work due to the socio-economic constraints. From a policy perspective, governments should encourage unpaid women who are willing to participate in the labour market to do so, by reinforcing gender-focused measures such as provision of basic facilities, public childcare, easy access to credit facilities for entrepreneurial activities, and invigorating technical education and vocational training.

  • Competencias de Estudiantes Universitarios Griegos para una Práctica
           Sostenible de la Igualdad de Género

    • Authors: Ioanna Kitta et al.
      Abstract: La educación para el desarrollo sostenible de la igualdad de género ha sido conceptualizada como un vehículo para la adquisición de competencias y el mantenimiento sostenible de la igualdad y equidad en el mundo. Sin embargo, a pesar del compromiso de los gobiernos e instituciones de educación superior a facilitar la formación necesaria, los egresados universitarios salen del sistema sin las competencias necesarias para un ejercicio y desarrollo profesional sensible al género. El propósito del presente estudio fue explorar el nivel de competencia en cuestiones de género examinando la eficacia percibida para una práctica sostenible de la igualdad de maestros en preservicio al término de sus estudios de grado. Con este fin, en primer lugar, se adaptó y validó la versión griega de la escala TEGEP (Teacher Efficacy for a Gender Equality Practice) y, en segundo lugar, se describieron y compararon los conocimientos, habilidades y actitudes asociadas a la educación en igualdad de género adquiridos al término de su formación por titulación y sexo. Los participantes fueron 1194 estudiantes de nueve universidades públicas griegas y cuatro titulaciones (maestros de educación primaria, de educación física, de filología griega y de ciencias) seleccionados deliberadamente, quienes respondieron a una encuesta en línea. Su edad oscilaba entre 20 y 53 años y en su mayoría eran mujeres (79%) de origen griego (98.20%). Los análisis factoriales exploratorios y confirmatorios, simples y multigrupo, apoyaron una estructura factorial de 21 ítems que explica el 63.61% de la varianza, así como unos indicadores de ajuste al modelo comparables a los de la versión española de la TEGEP demostrando que la versión griega del instrumento tiene propiedades psicométricas adecuadas (buena consistencia interna, validez de constructo e invarianza factorial aceptables) para medir y evaluar las competencias en género adquiridas por los estudiantes al término de su formación. Los resultados se discuten en términos de necesidades de reforma curricular en el contexto de una educación para el desarrollo sostenible de la igualdad de género (ODS 4.7 y ODS 5).

  • Non-sexist Language in Vacancy Titles: A Proposal for Drafting and
           Translation in International Organisations

    • Authors: María López Medel
      Abstract: Current and past research confirms the existence of a gender gap that prevents women from earning the same salaries as men, having equal access to typically male sectors, and climbing the professional ladder to the highest positions of management. The separation of the sexes often starts at home or at school, with girls being led to choices of gender-stereotypical careers or domestic life. This needs to be tackled from various angles, and one tool for this is non-sexist language. Sexist language makes women invisible and secondary by referring to them in the masculine and has been proven to negatively affect women in different ways, especially in employment. The United Nations includes best practices and strategies for non-sexist language in the Sustainable Development Goal number 5: “achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.” For the EU’s European Institute for Gender Equality, the goal of non-sexist language is to eliminate the ambiguous masculine and expressions that discriminate. Despite a concerted but inconsistent effort to eradicate sexist language by governments and international organisations, discrepancies in gender expression between languages do not necessarily require the application of different techniques. In an analysis of job vacancy titles of two international organisations, a variety of gender options was observed, with some languages showing a higher proportion of neutral-language forms. Our proposal for non-sexist drafting and translation of job advertisements calls for the systematic use of both genders alphabetically with variable profession nouns, and the use of the gender initials (f/m) after invariable, collective, and metonymic nouns, also in pronominal-gender languages like English. We believe that making women visible in vacancy titles will encourage female applications and establish mental connections that make women relate to the posts. Although gender specification of job advertisements might not be the only solution to closing the gender gap, it could contribute to the betterment of women in employment. More studies are necessary to show the advantages of applying non-sexist language in vacancies for the advancement of women in the labour market together with the adoption of simple rules in drafting and translation.

  • Women and Entrepreneurship in Nigeria: What Role Does Social Inclusion
           Play'

    • Authors: Ezebuilo R. UKWUEZE
      Abstract: Women’s participation in business enterprises has attracted much attention from policy makers, researchers, NGOs, politicians, the government sector, and international agencies. This is because it has been identified that women’s involvement in income generation tends to boost family income, support children’s education, improve health of family members, provide food, build assets for the family, and contribute to general development of economies. However, women have not been performing these roles due to constraints placed consciously or inadvertently on women by society, limiting them from engaging in income-earning ventures, especially in developing countries like Nigeria. Even those who wish to venture into economic activities face both economic and non-economic challenges limiting their enterprise. These challenges exclude women from being involved in economic activities. This study is poised to: investigate the role of social inclusion on female owned businesses in Nigeria, examine the impact of economic factors that inhibit female-owned businesses in Nigeria, and investigate the non-economic factors affecting the involvement of Nigerian women in business entrepreneurship. The data for this study will be sourced from the World Bank’s Global Findex database (2017), while the logistic regression model will be used for analysis. Findings from the study shows that the number of female account holders, financial institutional accounts in rural areas, grants or loans to startup businesses, rural and household size were all found to be positively and significantly influencing women owned businesses in Nigeria It is recommended that the government needs to set up more viable grant and loans schemes targeted particularly to female entrepreneurs both at the rural and urban areas so as to encourage more female businesses in Nigeria.

  • Does Entrepreneur Gender Matter for Entrepreneurial Motivation: Answers
           from Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) of Assam

    • Authors: Ankita Sarmah et al.
      Abstract: With regard to SGD-5, this study attempts to examine the association between entrepreneur’s gender and their entrepreneurial motivation and to discover if entrepreneur’s gender influences the motivation. The study further tries to see if entrepreneurial motivation varies on the grounds of entrepreneur’s gender. Based on a qualitative approach, the study uses interview data of 320 MSME entrepreneurs from Assam, India. Two hypotheses—there is no association between entrepreneur’s gender and the entrepreneurial motivation (H01) and there is no significant difference between the mean rank of male and female entrepreneurs with respect to their motivational factors (H02)—are postulated and tested using Chi-Square and Mann Whitney test respectively. The Chi-Square and Cramer’s V test findings corroborate a strong, positive, and significant association between (H01) entrepreneur’s gender and their entrepreneurial motivations and further the Mann Whitney analysis acknowledged that motivational factors significantly vary across entrepreneur’s gender (H02) refuting the earlier studies. Due to society’s gender perceptions, the relationship between entrepreneurial motivations and entrepreneurship differs between males and females. Men are relatively more drawn towards entrepreneurship than women. Male entrepreneurs are largely the outcome of force (46.9%), create (26.9%), and chance (26.3%) while females are of chance (55.6%), force (30.6%), and create (13.8%) motivational factors. From a policy perspective, female empowering policies should be of two-fold viz., first to economically strengthen them and second to spread awareness about their legal rights.

  • Elementos de Impulso y Barreras en el Camino de las Mujeres Ejecutivas a
           la alta Dirección Empresarial en España

    • Authors: Virginia Ríos
      Abstract: Después de una revisión bibliográfica de estudios e investigaciones anteriores que aportan un análisis sobre los factores que impulsan el liderazgo de las mujeres en altos cargos empresariales, así como aquellos que lo impiden, se analizan las entrevistas a seis altas directivas y consejeras de empresas españolas para reflexionar sobre los temas que atañen a su desarrollo profesional hacia la alta dirección, el cual incide en el cumplimiento del Objetivo de Desarrollo Sostenible No. 5 Lograr la igualdad entre los géneros y empoderar a todas las mujeres y las niñas. La principal conclusión de este estudio es que llegar a la cumbre de las organizaciones puede ser visto como una circunstancia excepcional en la actualidad, si tenemos en cuenta la gran cantidad de factores estructurales que influyen en las carreras de las mujeres y que han de confluir para que esto sea posible: su ambición y autoestima, su esfuerzo profesional, una preparación y formación continua, una red social de apoyo sólida; así como la constante superación a la inercia patriarcal que existe en las organizaciones en forma de sesgos consientes e inconscientes. En las entrevistas se observa una desvinculación de los roles de género cuando se afrontan los retos profesionales, si bien las entrevistadas reconocen las barreras que pueden existir para las mujeres que aspiran a posiciones más altas de liderazgo. Finalmente proponemos futuras líneas de investigación que podrían ayudar a complementar nuestro análisis.
