WOMAN DECISION

Salah satu keinginan yang diperjuangkan oleh gerakan perempuan adalah bertambahnya pemimpin perempuan, terbukanya kesempatan bagi perempuan untuk mengambil bagian dalam pengambilan keputusan, yang selama ini pimpinan atau manajer hampir selalu didominasi oleh laki-­‐ laki. Perempuan memang mempunyai peluang untuk memegang peran melihat jumlahnya yang cukup besar yang bila diikuti dengan kualitas dan kemampuan, akan menjadi suatu potensi pembangunan yang kuat. Namun pada kenyataanya, perempuan masih selalu dianggap sebagai orang kedua (subordinat) dari berbagai bidang. Sementara seorang pemimpin dikatakan baik dan berhasil manakala mampu mengambil keputusan yang rasional dan bijaksana, tanpa melihat gender.

Yukl (1998) mengemukakan bahwa pengambilan keputusan berhubungan erat dengan gaya dan tekhnik kepemimpinan. Pengambilan keputusan dapat dianggap sebagai suatu hasil atau keluaran dari proses mental atau kognitif yang membawa pada pemilihan suatu jalur tindakan di antara beberapa alternatif yang tersedia. Setiap proses pengambilan keputusan selalu menghasilkan satu pilihan final. Keluarannya bisa berupa suatu tindakan (aksi) atau…...

Empowering Woman

...in terms of educations; drive women to become more politically active and more informed how to exercise their legal rights. What I found fascinating there are societies and cultures that limit career opportunities for women to what they believe are socially acceptable occupations. Empowering woman would allow them the ability to choose their own career paths, and this empowerment has far reaching effects on the economic. Some regions of the world often reinforce the traditional roles for woman and deny woman equal participant in society. The Fourth World Committee believes empowering women’s participation in decision making improves family’s welfare. Empowered educated women tend to have healthier families; so granting women their empowerment goes beyond the reproductive roles that some countries slant for women. Despite success in empowering women, issues still exist in all areas of life; they range from cultural bias, political discrimination and fear of lost economics. Women in developing countries work more hours than men and are paid far less. Women in Muslim countries deal with cultural religion that takes precedence as law. Women in this region don’t make decision on size of family, when the family should be started or the ability to fulfill their aspirations outside the house without the approval of their husbands or father. If you’re a suppose of equality like I am think about this – women in Muslim region need permission to travel and requesting loans. ......

Woman Is Overrated

...to space, from politics to football. They are everywhere and can do everything or, at least they think so, a man can. One may think that this is a good sign of cooperation between men and women. But is it in reality? It’s a man’s world and women should take their dirty hands off our business. In most of the ancient societies women were treated very badly. They were seen as scums. They couldn’t own a property or had individual freedom to get married. They were forced to walk behind their husbands and widows couldn’t remarry. They were inferior to men and source of temptation and evil. According to Greek mythology it was a woman called Pandora who opened the box that Zeus gave to her and brought plague and unhappiness to mankind. There are many other famous sayings that discredit women. Among these are; • Woman, you are the devil’s gateway.” Tertullian • Woman is the gate of the devil, the path of wickedness, the sting of the serpent, in a word a perilous object. St. Jerome • In fact, even though the man was created outside of paradise, he is found to be superior. Ambrose the bishop of Milan • Women are on earth to bear children. If they die in childbearing, it matters not; that is all they are here to do. Martin Luther Male dominancy went on until the industrial revolution. With the industrial revolution people left their farms and started moving to cities where they worked in big factories together with other people.

Safety of Woman

...Being in the 21st century, with technology and world so advanced, we still talk about this subject, “Are Women Safe, in India, especially?” With surveys and understandings of what is happening around us, it is time that the country joins hands together to realize that – ‘Women are NOT SAFE in any means in India’. There have many cases that have been reported and many unreported for the torture a woman undergoes, yet there has been nothing done to change the law or the system to the way a woman is being looked at. Women have been advancing, progressing and have proved that they can beat men in any sector they are in. Be it sports, arts, science, politics, service or for that matter any where, she has stood at par with what a man could do. Yet, she still fights for equality. No matter what, the old thoughts and upbringing culture still lay cluttered in the minds of men that women should not be above men, but below them. It is sad to understand that women are the better halves of the society, yet they are the ones who face the maximum tortures in many ways in their lives. Time has changed, yet attitude towards women have never been changed. To understand better, one has to get to the root cause of the problem. It has all started ages ago, where men are thought to be gods and powerful and women to be just like slaves for household works. Even today, leave alone villages where people are uneducated, the educated society or who claims to be in the high class society,......

Woman Entrepreunership

...managers perceived that women’s family loyalty and tradition can subsequently interfere in co-operate decision making. However when it comes to men, the issue is not likely to be highlighted since women is often seen relocating with her husband or has a minimal role in protesting against her spouse’s decisions Kumra & Vinni (2008). However some influential women made it to the top despite of co-operate cultural barrier. Marissa Mayer became the youngest CEO at Yahoo Enterprise. As she had served Google for couple of years she realized she couldn’t make a change in her career so she decided to try to establish her career to the next level in other companies. The most striking fact was that she was pregnant at that point of time. But she pursued her work career shortly after the delivery. This situation explains that with regard to natural or situational circumstances women struggle more than the men to enjoy a successful career. Thus men are often perceived to experience an easy climb onto the co-operate ladder than the women. Co-operate giants sometimes requests or offer the working women a chance to prove their self worth provided in working at higher co-operate levels. However in every business trade, a price is involved. The business context expects women to absorb masculine characteristics such as vision –oriented, being independent and adamant. If a woman does not adopt the masculine norm in their work behavior, she is automatically framed as an......

An Amazing Woman

...Collinsville Building and Loan, but now she works at Federal Community Bank in Collinsville. She is a very brilliant woman with a wide vocabulary. I love talking to her just because I love to hear the difference in the language use between her and me. She has a very wide vocabulary and I use a lot of slang terms. You can definitely see the difference in the generations. She is the kind of person that doesn’t judge a book by its cover. She gets to know someone first and even after that she doesn’t judge anybody. She tells me all the time that life is too short to have enemies so just be friends with everybody and if your personalities don’t click then find someone else. I try to live my life like that, but sometimes I catch myself still judging people. She has taught me a lot of what I know today. When you first meet my grandma, she always looks really nice and some say she looks high maintenance. She tells me that she is not high maintenance; she just knows what she wants. She and I are really close because we are a lot alike. My dad was an only child, so my grandma never got to have a daughter so in a way she treats me like I’m her child. She takes me shopping for my birthday and Christmas, or if I am in desperate need of something and I don’t have money at that time. I love going shopping with her, because I am a very indecisive person and she helps me make my decisions. When I try clothes on sometimes I don’t know whether I like it or not, and she is not afraid to tell......

A Woman of Standards

...A Woman of Standards Traditionally considered a subservient sex, the female role has only recently been allowed to surface under the scrutiny of the public eye. In the decades before it, women are undermined and repressed by the men that govern their very essence of being. Men, according to Jean-Jacque Rousseau in his piece Émile, do not require the presence of a woman in his life to retain his position of power, yet by the “laws of nature” women without a man has no control over her own social situation (257). Literature in the both the Enlightenment and Romantic eras help illuminate these ideas by enforcing a significant emphasis on the role and dress of the properly educated female and how that affects, or cannot affect, their standing in society. Elaborating on his previous point, Rousseau points out that, “everything that characterizes sex should be respected as established by nature” (256). The differences in both temperament and character of men and women would likewise indicate how their education ought to be in a natural balance against each other, specializing in different but similar actions (Rousseau 256). To better reinforce his theory, Rousseau challenges mothers to “try to educate them [their daughters] like men. They will be quite willing. But the more they resemble men the less will be their power over men, and the greater their own subjection” (256). The more womanly a female is, the better off she will be. If she retains her proper role, she can only...

The Evolving Woman

...existence of the woman is suspended during marriage." This is according to a 1765 law established by Sir William Blackstone an English barrister, and American law followed this principle thereby the wife "belonged" to the husband. These were the times that women lived through and the conditions they lived with during the early part of the nineteenth century. As I move forward making mention of a woman named Mary Wollstonecraft who has been called a forward-thinking feminist. She was a woman that was years ahead of her time. Her writing, A Vindication of Rights of Men (1790) is one of the most important documents in the history of women's rights. Mary’s views were primarily concerned with the whole woman as an individual and about rights. Mary was a participant in and observer of an outstanding series of social revolutions. This may have been the major reason why she held such radical views. Mary's goal was to indicate the injustices in the treatment of women and attempt to correct them (Wollstonecraft). Centuries have passed since Mary's time and remarkable changes have been made in the world of woman's rights. 1998 marked the 150th Anniversary of a movement by women to achieve full civil rights in this country. Women have not been the passive beneficiaries of changes in laws and human nature; women needed to work aggressively to gain anything and all they could. A convention to discuss the social, civil, and the religious condition and rights of woman......

Sorrowful Woman

...Sorrowful Woman 1. FIRST RESPONSE. How did you respond to the excerpt from A SECRET SORROW and to “A Sorrowful Woman”? Do you like one more than the other? Is one of the women – Faye or Godwin’s unnamed wife – more likable than the other? Why do you think you respond the way you do to the characters and the stories – is your response intellectual, emotional, a result of authorial intent, a mix of these, or something else entirely? Both writings were very well written and very enjoyable to read. “The Sorrowful Woman” and A Secret Sorrow were similar, although they were very different, due to the inner sorrow they both faced. I enjoyed reading A Secret Sorrow more than “The Sorrowful Woman” due to the fact that I was able to somewhat feel what Godwin’s unnamed wife was feeling. I responded to the characters in an emotional way. I found myself able to sympathize with both Faye and Godwin’s unnamed wife. They both have very deep issues, but being a mother myself, makes me have more empathy for Faye. I could not imagine what it would be to want to push my child or husband, nor could I imagine not being able to have a child of my own. 2. Describe what you found appealing in each story. Can you point to passages in both that strike you as especially well written or interesting? Was there anything in either story that did not appeal to you? Why? In A Secret Sorrow, I found Kai’s love for Faye most appealing. He did not look at Faye’s inability to have children not as a......

... up from less than 1 percent in l950. Since the 1990s, only about 30 women have served as heads of state, although an increasing number have been in powerful nations such as the United Kingdom, India, Germany, and Chile.[xi] Comprehensive international data is unavailable for women’s representation in leadership roles in business and the professions, but the limited information that has been compiled suggests ample room for progress. For example, across Europe, women make up only about a third of high-level decision makers, including legislators, senior government officials, and business managers.[xii] Only 8 percent of directors and 5 percent of top executives in the 200 largest companies are female. In some of the most powerful nations, including Germany, Japan, and Great Britain, the figures are still worse.[xiii] Not a single woman figured in a recent Fortune magazine survey of the 25 highest-paying CEO’s in Europe, and in some countries, no woman has ever headed a large global corporation.[xiv] In many nations in Asia, Africa, and the Mideast, women have difficulty walking unescorted or working in any setting outside their homes or fields, let alone ascending a leadership ladder.[xv] Despite significant national variations, the global workforce is highly gender-segregated and gender-stratified, and progress toward equity at the highest levels has been slow and uneven. [xvi] This chapter explores the reasons for these persistent and pervasive......

The Woman Rebel

..."The Woman Rebel" and The Fight for Birth Control During fourteen years experience as a trained nurse, I found that a great percentage of women's diseases were due to ignorance of the means to prevent conception. I found that quackery was thriving on this ignorance, and that thousands of abortions were being performed each year-- principally upon the women of the working class. Since the laws deter reliable and expert surgeons from performing abortions, working women have always been thrown into the hands of the incompetent, with fatal results. The deaths from abortions mount very high. I found that physicians and nurses were dealing with these symptoms rather than their causes, and I decided to help remove the chief cause by imparting knowledge to prevent conception, in defiance of existing laws and their extreme penalty. I sent out a call to the proletarian women of America to assist me in this work, and their answers came by the thousands. I started The Woman Rebel early in 1914. The first issue of the magazine was suppressed. Seven issues out of nine were suppressed, and although sent out as first-class mail, the editions were confiscated. The newspapers--even the most radical-- declined to give this official tyranny any publicity. In August, 1914, a Federal Grand Jury returned three indictments against me, based on articles in the March, May and July issues of The Woman Rebel. The articles branded as "obscene" merely discussed the question and contained no......

Woman Equilty

... or an obligation, to treat other people with respect; human beings have dignity, and we must take that dignity into consideration when dealing with them. We also expect others to respect our dignity when they deal with us”(Mosser,2013). It is only humane to treat women as equal as they carried most of the responsibility of a household per 20th-century. Women have been looked at as inferior to men. Just properly for them to use and control. The hierarchy of man believes women are spoken to without the voice to be heard. The women had job positions that were assigned to such as cooking food, washing clothes, and cleaning their homes. In this era education was not a function of importance to a household. Society dictated the role of a woman as the perception was embedded. Women cannot even dream of questioning the role they played in society until the middle of the 1800s. Is it that man fears women and their abilities? “The injustice from an economic viewpoint is gender discrimination also stunts growth as it prevents countries from reaching their maximum productivity potential. Even though women constitute 40% of the global work force, there are still many who are unpaid family workers in the informal and for the ones that are paid are well below their male counterparts”(Kamrany Nake, Robinson Catherine, 2012).

That Woman Cried

...That Woman Cried Written by KyuSe7en501 Note: Forgive me if I ain’t good in writing. T_T Twenty- fourth of January a woman appeared before my eyes. She was crying, really, really hard. I didn’t know what to do, I was at a total loss of words. Since then, I started wondering why women cry; are they just fond of crying, or, do they cry for something men don’t understand? As a man myself I want to know the answer. Not that I love to interfere with their sorrows but I just want to have my curiosity get answered. Do they cry for no reason? Some people say women are beyond emotional. They cry because their hearts are soft, they also waste tears because they are partly weak, in comparison with men. I thought those were enough for me to get my mouth closed. I thought those were the best answers for my questions. But then I realized I could discover it myself, and learn things up through women. Months have passed since the day I found that woman crying; I finally got to see her again in a restaurant. She wasn’t crying at all, nor was she sad. She was all smiling --- so beautifully. Her wide smile made my heart filled with wonderfulness; She also had her hair pony tailed which made her long slender neck appear publicly. Those assets were so nice to see that I wanted to talk to her and get to know her better. She was so beautiful like a goddess. Upon my amazement followed the complete sense of surprise. A man, with a child by his side, got an appearance toward the woman,......

Woman Entreprenuere

...the analysis of network-formation, organization and the actions of female entrepreneurs − and the ensuing results on a higher political level − we may be able to explain the conflicts surrounding the development of special policies aimed at “female” enterprise. Expected outcomes and results On a short-term basis, we may contribute to new knowledge of the conditions of entrepreneurship, from a political and historical perspective. Within what political frameworks and structures do female entrepreneurs act, and what obstacles do they encounter? On a long-term basis we aspire to identify discriminating structures and institutional frameworks within political organizations, decision-making areas and the 6 mass-media. Our claim is that the combined studies of gender, media, policy-making and decision-making processes will reveal further structures and conditions with implications for female entrepreneurship. Through the highlighting and analysis of female participation in political processes we hope to improve future conditions for female entrepreneurs. Research design The project will make use of quantitative as well as qualitative sources and methods, including interviews, organizational protocols and minutes, state investigations, material from political parties and newspaper material.
