writes a post — and her argument is not even as important as the miserable stress that her post conveys. Her argument is that being a work at home mom is not comparable to being a work out of the home mom; I’m not getting involved in this. Who cares as long as you’re earning money. But the details of her life make my blood pressure escalate and shows why many young women would be forgiven to not choosing to have children. A sample: Working moms. I scoff at the Internet’s idea of a working mom. Sorry Internets, but I do. I have been a working mom for the better part of three years; and by working I mean dragging ...
women live in a culture that is focused on the community, with the family as the main unit of society. It is in this framework of Philippine hierarchical structure, class differences, religious justifications, and living in a globally developing nation wherein Filipino women struggle for respect. Compared to other parts of Southeast Asia , women in Philippine society have always enjoyed a greater share of legal equality. 1 2 3 4 Cite error: There are tags on this page, but the references will not show without a {{Reflist}} template or a tag; see the .

Women and Work in Indonesia (Hardback) - Routledge
This book examines the meaning of work for women in contemporary Indonesia. It takes a broad definition of work in order to interrogate assumptions about work and economic activity, focusing on what women themselves see as their work, which includes not only paid employment, home life and child care, but also activities surrounding ritual, healing and religious life. It analyses the key issues, including the contrasts between ‘new’ and ‘old’ forms of work, the relationship between experiences of migration and work, and the ways in which religion – especially Islam - shapes perceptions and practice ... market research, surveys and trends

Women and Work
Historically, women have always worked, whether it was paid or unpaid labor. In the work force the public initially accepted women as teachers. Therefore, pioneering Oklahoma women worked as educators in Indian and Oklahoma territories. Representative of these women were missionary Ann Eliza (Worcester) Robertson, who taught at Park Hill and at Tullahassee, and Ann Wilson, who served as principal teacher of the Cherokee Female Seminary. Around the turn of the twentieth century Isabel Crawford worked with the Kiowa in southwestern Oklahoma Territory. Before public schools opened, women operated subscription schools, earning ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Women, Work and the Supreme Court
Periodically I write something that gets taken in a way that is a complete surprise to me. That’s what is happening with the essay, posted below, looking at the question of why successful women are less likely to be mothers. My goal was to look at why, 40 years into a feminist revolution, women so often face a choice between children and career, a choice men don’t seem to be making. Most of all I aimed to explore how the equation of a woman’s life has gotten more complicated, not less so, in the 30 years between Sandra Day O’Connor and Elena Kagan. It is not a piece about how mothers make better judges. They don’t. Yes, I quote ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Skydiving mothers from SC hope to get national attention
"We really are unique. Number one, we're all female and that's a big thing," said team captain Dani Bridges. "The other thing is, as we like to say, we're slightly older women." Bridges is 53. So is team member Kathy Stringer. "It's really, really fun to be with three other women and work on our skills in the sky," Stringer said.  The other two team members are 38 and 41. All four women are mothers. They train at Skydive Carolina Parachute Center in Chester, a place teeming with jumpers when the weather is nice. In a sport dominated by men, the girls are proud to stand out. "It is normally guys. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Are sexist jokes about women often told at your office?
As you know, we love interesting research about women and work and recently I found a study which showed sexist jokes told in law enforcement settings cause stress, not only for women but for their male colleagues too. The main researcher at Kansas State university, Don Kurtz theorised "that women's stress levels increased because the jokes were often belittling or sexually inappropriate while the jokes also potentially caused stress for men with a higher education. These men, whose perceptions on gender might have been challenged by their education, were perhaps less likely to exhibit sexist attitudes but were still ...
Women`s History: World History, ottoman empire, commercial cities
I'm sorry to say I know nothing about the Ottoman Empire but I found the following on google.  If you want more information, I suggest you talk to your local librarian. Women in the Ottoman Empire Women in the Ottoman Empire were given freedom. They had freedom to work where they wanted and freedom to own their land. In the Ottoman Empire women had better rights than the women throughout Europe and then America during the same time period.. Recently however, there was a movement by women to extend their rights to be equal to women. I chose to focus on Turkey as the modern Ottoman Empire because it was where the capital ...
