The sexual/gender differentiation—are the boundaries of gender struggle?

Pubblicato online: 05 Jun 2020
Pagine: 9 - 20

Astratto

Abstract

The author is discussing issues concerning gender differentiation in the sphere of economy, social roles and its cultural and biological roots.

Self-identification in the context of original concept of feminine type of personality in contemporary photography #widurskiwoman

Pubblicato online: 05 Jun 2020
Pagine: 29 - 38

Astratto

Abstract

For a long time, recalling the broadest spectrum of art, including literature, painting, sculpture and all works created in the field of artistic creation, there was a connection that defined (in the context of cultural capital) human existence on the social, physical and spiritual level. Nowadays, feminist circles draw attention to the influence and significance of the way of portraying women and men in post-modernity, fighting against stereotypical patterns of gender roles. The concept of #widurskiwoman photography is a representation of women subject to expressive emancipation, aware of their sensuality, illustrating at the same time the perfection of the human body, where the essential features and values presented in them are hidden under the daily ritual of applying the often-undefined mask.

Sensory processing disorders in women or why a lady cannot be a lady

Pubblicato online: 05 Jun 2020
Pagine: 39 - 49

Astratto

Abstract

Why my daughter does not like it when I am braiding her hair? Why does she not want to put on a dress again, in which she looks so beautiful? Instead of acting like a little lady, she runs, bumps into people, falls, ruining her tights and a new skirt? Why is my daughter not like my friend’s daughter? Mothers of girls who have problems with sensory processing often ask the above questions. They would like their daughters to have the resemblance of little ladies. This article will discuss the issues in sensory processing disorders in girls and women that affect the way they function, and the way other people perceive them. In this article, “lady” will be understood as a woman who is refined, polite, and well-spoken.

The Queen Bee Syndrome. The paradox of women discrimination on the labour market

Pubblicato online: 05 Jun 2020
Pagine: 51 - 61

Astratto

Abstract

Nowadays, women are present in all spheres of life and legislation gives them the same rights as men. We can therefore speak about the emancipation of women for whom new areas of social life have become available, especially the area of education and the labour market. However, despite the fact that gender equality is officially enforced in Western countries, we can still notice certain forms of discrimination against women, in particular related to their functioning in the labour market. The unequal access of women to managerial positions is just one of the many examples. Paradoxically, this access is sometimes hampered by women holding high positions who are not willing to help their younger colleagues in achieving professional promotion. The aim of this article is to present and explain the occurrence of this negative phenomenon, which will be referred to as the Queen Bee Syndrome.

Cosplay in the perspective of rape culture. Context, origins and conditions

Pubblicato online: 05 Jun 2020
Pagine: 63 - 73

Astratto

Abstract

Many people do not have the knowledge on what cosplay is, even less about its positive correlation with the rape culture we live in. It’s hard to disagree that the modern world is heavily influenced by the pop culture, current reality is based upon it, and so it cannot be omitted in such important things as education. Cosplay, as a generally new trend is heavily rooted in it and as such it’s connected to the battle for equality, emancipation, sexism and many movements which are part of video games. Patriarchal influences and rooted patterns found in our cultural circle have impact on the appearance of costumes, which we wear; supply and demand with the addition of consumerism and hedonism dictate the look of created characters and cosplays characters which are most popular. Situations which demands attention are ones, where we breach someone’s personal space, where molestation of rape occurs. Aspects which help here will be proper upbringing and education, which apart of implementing basic culture and its patterns will also sensitize towards the problems of sexual abuse. The issue here does not lie in the character models, scarce costumes or the unfair fight for equality, its indoctrination or inappropriate approach, but teaching respect and enjoying the phenomena which is cosplay.

Arms proliferation and the crisis of cult supremacy and insecurity in Ogoniland Nigeria

Pubblicato online: 05 Jun 2020
Pagine: 75 - 95

Astratto

Abstract

This study examined the nexus between arms proliferation and the crisis of cult supremacy and insecurity in Ogoniland of Rivers State. It adopted the Anomie Theory as propounded by Emile Durkheim and Strain Theory of Crime by Robert Merton. The central thrust of these theories is that attention is focused on the relationship between a person’s socio economic condition and the possibility that the person would commit either crime or delinquency. The study argues that the vulnerable economically misbalance youth population took advantage of the porous nature of the waterways and engaged in arms struggle in the area. This is due to the lack of functional institutional framework to regulate the trade in illicit arms especially in the Niger Delta region, which is responsible for the influx of small arms and light weapon into the hands of non-state actors. This has generated persistent crises and insecurity among communities and the different cult groups over territorial supremacy in Ogoniland. The study also reveals that the political actors in the area equally mastermind cult related crisis for the purpose of political dominance. The study posits that only structured and sustainable policies and empowerment programmes can help to reduce cult crisis and insecurity in Ogoniland of Rivers state. The study recommends that government should initiate a functional strategy of controlling the trade in small arms and light weapons. Equally security at the borders and along the waterways in Ogoniland should be strengthened to check in inflow of arms.

Women empowerment and domestic violence in selected Nigerian video films

Pubblicato online: 05 Jun 2020
Pagine: 97 - 123

Astratto

Abstract

The concept of women empowerment in the society is as vital as the empowerment of their male counterparts. Studies have shown that when people are empowered, they become strong, independent and less vulnerable or susceptible to anybody or group of persons. This study in the film medium is extremely crucial, since it will help in redirecting the minds of the society against domestic violence against the women. This is because it aids the development of the society positively. This study applies textual analysis as a methodological tool to examine how the feminine gender is represented in the popular Nigerian film industry called Nollywood. Among the video-films analyzed are: Michael Jaja’s Thanks for Coming and Gallant Babes. The study applied the purposive sampling technique to arrive at these video-films and observes that the female folks are empowered; there will be less domestic violence, since empowerment brings about freedom, realization, and power to resist and confront enemies. It discovers that domestic violence can be physical, economic, psychological, emotional, etc., thereby having serious negative consequences on the women. Some of the representations on women here revolve around some demeaning attitudes towards the women folks, subjecting them to perpetual ridicule; such as being domestic servants, mischievous prostitutes or others that at best paint a negative picture of the Nigerian woman in the society. Except women are empowered, they will continually experience domestic violence, regular abuses, etc. This research did not deny that instances abound where women are also invested with super-human virtues as in some woman-warrior films, the concern here however to advocate for women empowerment in Nollywood which lead to the eradication of domestic violence. Hence, it argues, that rather than continue to perpetuate old fashioned inhumanity on the women, filmmakers and producers should flow with the tide of presenting women in better light that express their resourcefulness to the society.
