WOMEN'S INTERNET USAGE ACROSS UNITED KINGDOM AND MALAYSIA ab 79 EURO A COMPARATIVE STUDY ACROSS CONTINENTS
The book explores one of the most critical concepts in gender theories. It attempts to understand the 'agency' of the diasporic subjects. It locates agency in the personal narratives of two generations of Bangladeshi immigrant women in the United Kingdom (UK). The author problematizes the liberal notion of autonomy which considers religion as an obstacle to women's agency. She uncouples agency from resistance, choice and the provision of change without nullifying the latter concepts within agency. The book defines agency as the strategies' that women use to lead their lives in different ways. One of the central arguments of this book is that there is none without agency, nor is someone with more agency or with less agency. Everyone has agency, but everyone has different forms of agency. This is an important book for the academics, gender specialists, development practitioners and policymakers who are interested in 'gender and migration' issues.
Women's rights advancement continues to uncover and seek to redress gender-related human rights violations like domestic violence which is the subject of this study. The book examines how the U.S. deals with this problem. The definition of membership in a particular social group which is the Refugee Convention ground for the protection of domestic violence is, at best, problematic. In an effort to ensure that the definition is not too encompassing, jurists have frequently adopted conflicting interpretations of the 1951 Refugee Convention and domestic law like in the U.S.. But the definitions in various countries like New Zealand, Canada and United Kingdom show that convergence on a particular definition is possible. Although the U.S. pioneered the definition of membership in a particular social group, they have not honored this definition, and they should return to using it. This will go a long way in reinforcing Obama administration's commitment to defending America's ideals that "still light the world". This book will be especially useful to those determining refugee status, including governments, UNHCR, NGOs and academics, or anyone else interested in promoting women's rights.
The revolution in information technology has resulted in innovations that are having increasingly important effects on the life of their users, in both their personal and work lives. In particular, the Internet and associated applications such as email and the World Wide Web have had profound impacts over the last twenty or so years that they have been in widespread use, raising issues about various types of digital divide, including that between more and less developed nations. This thesis reports a study carried out on two continents, Europe and Asia, to compare and contrast the adoption of these innovations in a roughly comparable context, that of a University department. Interviews were carried out with 27 women drawn from administrative and academic staff in the University of Brighton (UK) and Kolej Universiti Teknikal Kebangsaan (Malaysia). The results were analysed under the following themes: 1. Differential email usage patterns, 2. Differential web usage patterns, 3. Affective issues around the use of email and Web, 4. Perceptions of the role of the Internet in everyday life, 5. Computer-Mediated and Non-Computer-Mediated communication
Master's Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Sociology - Law, Delinquency, Abnormal Behavior, grade: Distinction, Liverpool John Moores University (School of Law), course: Criminal Justice, language: English, abstract: This thesis employs qualitative methods to examine the subjective experiences of 9 South Asian females in the United Kingdom, all with varying exposure to honour based violence and the criminal justice system. Recurrent themes emerge from their accounts to suggest that abusive acts arise out of a multiplicity of cultural circumstances influenced by power and gender relations. Interdisciplinary theoretical analysis in criminology, criminal justice, sociology, law, cultural studies, psychology and political science compliment the research, with the interplay between contradictory discourses neo-liberalism and neo-conservatism demonstrating how the volatile and pensive climates of multiculturalism embedded in contemporary issues of terrorism, sexuality and patriarchy, fracture social relations in the dichotomy of belonging and identity. The notion of honour is explored, seen both as a tool to constrain women's independence and as a catalyst for violence when notions of family and community norms are challenged. Case descriptions from the UK are employed to illuminate how the concept of honour is used in practice, as well as highlighting problems with accountability and the lack of civil and criminal remedies that fail to provide women with adequate protection whilst covertly legitimating male violence. Recommendations include holistic responses in the provision of training for criminal justice bodies, the creation of guidelines and legislation specific to honour based violence, and the development of specialist voluntary services.
The boy-love (BL) manga is a Japanese-style comic strip that features the homoerotic relationships between the male heroes. Since its burgeoning in the 1970s, the genre is predominately created and consumed by Japanese women and has expanded its popularity to other countries including the United States, the United Kingdom and the mainland China. The article examines the tradition of presenting male beauty and sexuality in the Japanese history of art, illuminates the influence of such tradition on Japanese women's culture, interprets the cross- cultural readership of non-Japanese women by conducting a case study on Chinese female readers, and addresses the factors that lead to this particular transnational cultural phenomenon.
