Women's magazines play a variety of roles: they are forms of entertainment, sources of education and trade journals and historically are the precursors to today's Virtual Communities. The magazines allow for two-way communication between readers and writers, rather than the one-way communication of books. Women's magazines weren't always a medium for recycled, superficial news, nor were their readers always in the market for it. They used to be thoughtful, provoking, political and something completely different from what we pick up today. In the very early women's press, the contents were pred... View more info

Despite the fact that women's interest in politics is increasing and that almost all political parties have promised higher female representation in politics, women's organizations mostly appear to believe that these developments will not end in women deputies. Women's representation in politics is not linked to whether a country is rich or poor. Compared to men, women still face numerous obstacles when entering politics. In spite of the fact that countries around the world have recognized the under-representation of women in politics and started to adopt measures to address the deficit, the w... View more info

The term "women's human rights" does not refer simply to the theoretical approaches that women have used to transform human rights concepts, programs and agendas. In addition to being instrumental in the formulation of the conceptual challenges and demands levied by women, the idea of women's human rights has had immense impact as a tool for political activism. The concept of women's human rights has opened the way for women around the world to ask hard questions about the official inattention and general indifference to the widespread discrimination and violence that women experience ...

The term "leaders" refers to persons holding formal positions of leadership in complex organizations in industry, government, education, politics, the arts, sciences, and professions. Historically gender precluded most females from becoming leaders in such organizations as a result the assumptions that males were better suited than females for leadership roles was, until recently rarely questioned. Though females' early socialization and other obstacles may impede them from becoming leaders, those who do ascend do not behave significantly differently from men in the same kinds of posit...

On a similar note, it has been argued that the inclusion of women in computing will mitigate innovation-hindering effects such as group think by preventing the group from becoming too homogenized.

Kinship is a relationship between any entities that share a genealogical origin, through biological, cultural or historical descent. In anthropology the kinship system includes people related both by descent and marriage while usage in biology includes descent and mating. Human kinship relations through marriage are commonly called affinity in contrast to descent (also called consanguinity), although the two may overlap in marriages among those of common descent. Family relations as socio-cultural genealogy lead back to gods, animals that were in the area or natural phenomena. Kinship institut... View more info

The basic concept of the role of women remains, however, more-or-less unaltered. Atreyi Biswas evaluates the status of women in the Ramakatha traditions through a historical perspective.

Influential historiographics of anti-colonial nationalism suggest that women's cultural identities-laid out in codes by which they belong to their kin group and share in its collective future-are determined by the male elite's contentious relationship with imperialist modernity. The implication of such studies is that the new women's investment in her people's goals of gaining freedom from racial-masculinist domination and building independent nations inhibits her ability to self-actualize and intervene in patriarchal national history. Many feminist post-colonial scholars explore ways to theor... View more info

Although the early settlements in cyberspace have tended to be male-dominated, diversity does exist on the Internet. In fact, a 1994-95 study revealed that women comprise 34% of Internet users. Feminism, as it came of age in the 1960s, often equated technoscience with the Vietnam War and with forces in opposition to nature and life. Postmodern feminist theory of the 1980s, on the other hand, can be called technomania rather than technophobia because it extolled the notion that technology was creating a race of cyborgs.

This study provides a picture of the life styles of women both Christian and non-Christian in Goa (a tiny state in the west coast of India) during the Portuguese colonial rule. Customs, traditions and rituals dominated the life of the Goan women. The State and the Church played a significant role in upgrading their position. The Portuguese rule seemed to have made a difference to the status of women. As a result the conditions of women in Goa were far better than their counterparts elsewhere in India. Printed Pages: 166.

Cultural values become manifest in cultural norms and behaviors. Gender roles and the implications of these expectations on Asian women are particularly relevant. Traditional Asian gender roles prescribe for women to place the role of wife and mother above all others; men are expected to be the family breadwinner and spokesperson. Asian cultural values consequently encourage distinct spheres for men (e.g., work) and women (e.g., home) and a gendered household division of labor in which the burden of household duties such as housekeeping tasks and childcare rest heavily on women.

It has also brought great freedom to women, especially those living in traditionally conservative countries.
