Dear researchers,
I'm going to look at gender roles in a few novels from a sociolinguistic standpoint. What approaches do you recommend to analyze such roles?
warm regards,
Relevant answer
Answer
Very good question. As I understand that there are six main theoretical approaches include: “(1) the welfare approach; (2) women in development (WID); (3) women and development (WAD); (4) gender and development (GAD); (5) the effectiveness approach (EA); and (6) mainstream gender equality (MGE). You can opt as per you study perspectives.

I want to analyze the characters of the Hindi language feature film, No One Killed Jessica, and by characters I mean all the characters in the film, irrespective of gender. So, I want to know if there is any sort of criteria or any rules to follow while analyzing a character? How to go about it? Like, what should be the first step for analyzing? Do I have to measure the character against something?
Please help.
Thank you
Relevant answer
Answer
As other colleagues suggested, everything depends on what you want to know. But from my sociology perspective, I would consider two paths:
- The characters as a content you want to analize. Thus, it is applying regular content analysis techniques which will give you a general and global view of the characters".
- Secondly, I would rather think to analyze the characters itselves as a creation coming from the director/productor/etc...From this perspective, the characters are viewed as discourse positions designed from other actors (you could also consider to open the analysis to these other actors to establish their role and interests on the creation of characters). I hope that is helpful and the best of luck with your research.

Hi everyone, the last part of my Ph.D. would aim to measure how stereotypes and personality influence men and women in choosing their educational and career paths. The main idea is that stereotypes represent external factors influencing the individual while personality is internal. Browsing online I could not find a survey/database from which to extract the information I need for the analysis. Does anyone have any advice? The analysis will focus on both Finland and Italy so ideally, the data should have also information on these two countries. Thanks in advance to everyone who will take part in this discussion. Any suggestions are more than welcome. Marco

I am working on a systematic review for my masters thesis. The systematic review will evaluate and assess vaginal microbicides research from a gender perspective.
I am currently looking at SGBA tools and checklists for the evaluation of gender integration/ sensitivity throughout the research process; however, the tools I am finding are more appropriate for research conducted on both men and women.
So please if anyone has any ideas/ tool/ checklists that are suitable for this project let me know. Thanks!

Ghose Bishwajit Thank you for your answer. The aim of the study is to evaluate whether or not the research process has taken into account all gender related variables that may hinder the real world application of VMs in sub-Saharan Africa. For instance, women have less power in relationships, low autonomy (in terms of freedom of movement, decision making, and allocation of funds), etc. In many VM trials and studies, the analysis did not stratify the sample by SES, age, gender dynamics between the women and her partner. Also, many acceptability studies have excluded men from the sample even though it was proven that women's ale partners play a major role in their adherence to the VM.
I hope this has clarified it a bit. Kindly let me know if you any ideas. Thanks!

Creating binaries - "Menstruating Women" vs "Semening Men" :
The women have been enslaved by creating exemplary binaries. Women are defined between binaries, like – Mother vs Whore; Virgin vs Vamp.
Being a student of Sociology, I also believe in being an Activist.
They have created a phrase “Menstruating Women”, so I have created a phrase “Semening Men”.
Let us use this phrase “Semening Men” in our discourses, debates and discussions.
One example –
Throughout 2018, the two words that remained hot with “semening” men are – “Cow” and “Menstruation”.
Is this the final mental limits of which “semening” men are capable of?
Please let me know your thoughts.

Interesting thread here. What do you think about the move to remove the word woman completely from these discussions and activism? I keep seeing activism that just calls women 'menstruators' or 'ovary-havers' 'cervix-havers' but refers to men as 'men'. This is being argued as a nod to gender ideology, but I cannot understand why removing the word woman is so prevalent whilst the word 'men' is still being retained in everything. Just wondered what you thought.

Hello!
I am running a survey for my dissertation about multi-level gender effects on the success of online fundraisers. I am looking at how gender impacts the size of a donation, with the groupings being Male or Female Donor, Male or Female Fundraiser, and Male or Female Donation Beneficiary (a total of 8 groups).
The DV is the size of donation, with the IV a range of Likert, Boolean, and other style questions such as levels of similarity with the fundariser, similarity with the donation beneficiary, social group composition of same gender or not, age of donor, nationality of donor, etc. The values are constrained to either 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 for Likert, T/F for Boolean, or 1, 2,...23, 24, 25 for donation size.
My only experience with regressions are linear time series regressions relating to the stock market, so I am unsure how I should be formating my data and how to use this type of data in either R, Stata, or SPSS (I don't care which program I use, but those are the ones I have a basic understanding of). Ideally I would like to be able to run a regression to see if there is 1) a gender combination that affects the size of donation including some form of interaction effect between the gender variables [this would use only the participant responses where a donation occurred] and 2) if there is a combination which makes a donation more likely [this would use all participant responses regardless if they donated or not]. From my research this means it shoul dbe an ordered regression, but don't know if it should be probit or logit.
A generic version of my regression would be something like:
Donation size = β1(Donor Gender * Fundraiser Gender*Beneficiary Gender) + β2(Age) + β3(Social Group Similar Gender) + ..... + ε
I appreciate any help you can give, whether that is the type of tests to run, how to code interaction effects and dummy variables, how to format my data in Excel to be used in these other programs, or anything else.
Thank you so much in advance!

Answer
Hi Audrey. I agree with Rob that your estimation strategy will largely depend on the type of the dependent variable. From your explanation, it seems like there are zero values in your dependent variable (i.e. for those who did not participate or donate) and there will be strictly positive values (i.e. any amount of donation). If i understood you correctly and this is the case, then maybe one of the censored regressions is a better option like Tobit or craggit. You can use Tobit to estimate conditional effects (i.e. for those who actually donated), and unconditional effects (for the whole sample - the participants and non-participants). You can do this with Probit but your dependent variable (donation size) has to be binary which is clearly not.
If your dependent variable is count (1,2,3,...25) variable then Poisson is a better choice. Ordered regressions (ordered probit or logit are probably not the right choice either as they are mainly for modeling ordinal dependent variables (i.e. dependent variable takes values like excellent, very good, good, not bad, bad, worse).

So i'm doing about the emotional problems males and females cope with after a relationship termination. I will use questionnaires but i am really struggling with what design to use, can someone help?
In order to crystalize your design, perhaps you can do the following:
  1. perform rigorous literature review on antecedents of emotional problems after relationship break-off
  2. select a theory, theories or frameworks that your research will underpin on
  3. develop your conceptual framework / research model e.g. what are & how many Independent Variables (IVs) and Dependent Variable (DV) i.e. emotional problem after break-off
  4. list down your hypotheses as suggested by Mary above
  5. perform also literature review on how to operationalize those IVs & DV i.e. develop their operational definitions & survey questionnaire used to measure respondents' opinion (note: you might also need to develop your own questionnaire if there is none available / suitable from your literature review)
Once the above design is completed, you can embark on data collect & then data analyses (also perform a pilot study first).  The types of statistical / data analyses used dependent on the above conceptual framework / research model & hypotheses.

I am trying to estimate how different forms household decision-making type (categorical): either by husband, wife or joint influences (or is associated) with the adoption of CSA (agricultural) practices. That is, I would want to know how each decision-making type may influence the likelihood of adoption of particular CSA practices
THE QUESTION I WANT TO ANSWER IS: How does intra-household decision-making influence the adoption of CSA practice?
The following  provides details on the survey and also to help you get my suggestions on how to achieve my objective:
1. Respondents (Husband and wife) were asked separately if they had adopted particular CSA practices (i.e. members of the household can adopt more than one CSA practice)
2. If in a household (respondent said YES) S/he is asked who (for both singular and plural) made the decision to adopt that particular practice. The various responses are categorical (1= husband alone, 2= wife alone, 3= Joint, 4= others)
3. Non-adopters were not asked about any decision-making (i.e. there are no responses to who made the decisions not to adopt when respondents report non-adoption), hence, in the decision-making variable, non-adopters responses are coded 0 (indicating no decision made)
4. I have used logit and probit model treating the decision-making variable (either decision were made by Husband alone, Wife alone, Joint or other family members) as categorical predictor against the adoption of each specific practice (Outcome)

Which one of the two claims below exposed is right, in the opinion of the experts in gender issues in social research in RG?
1) A gender analysis is not limited to the analysis of the women as object of research, but it is aimed to understand the social construction of gender and to discover the difference in the problem studied.
2) Women can be taken into account as one of the minority groups, such as they are thought in the feminist studies and queer theories, which go beyond the gender construction issue.
Relevant answer
Answer
Good afternoon Maria,
In my opinion the construction of gender dialetics by the social sciences, beyond a theory, is a form to distinguish societies levelings in, as you well say it, social categories. However I consider that gender differentiation should not be seen as social evolution, agreeing with Bussey and Bandura when they say: "Human differentiation on the basis of gender is a fundamental phenomenon that affects
virtually every aspect of people’s daily lives."
The "Gender Perspective in Social Research" should be a base for social criticism if seen as a differentiation factor, as well as a behaviour conduct.

What I would suggest is that you first consider your research lens and research questions. Any codebook and related code sheets must reflect that lens and those questions.

In the same line of research Hugenberg et al (2010) argue, that categorization and motivation to indivduate between invividuals affect own and other group perception. Put simply, once a person is categorized as belonging to an other group as once own, motivation to discriminate between out-group invividuals decreases and were perceived as more similar.

I am just back from the training meeting about testing invariance, and we were working on the example with gender groups and educational groups.
Professor Shalom Schwartz has published research in which he did such analysis for gender, unfortunately I do not remember its name

Thank you, Arin, we will measure the participants judgments about quotas. But we need some items to measure also the participants judgments (or perceptions) of beneficiaries' abilities, competence, or merit.

I am trying to investigate why women are loathe to orient towards oncoming pedestrians and men are willing to do open pass. It has been suggested that, women tend to protect their breast with arms across when avoiding a collision. Is there any evolutionary theory to support this assertion?
I will appreciate any relevant articles and previous studies on pedestrian avoidance behavior.
Thanks

Answer
Dear Khayrullin, 
Your point on the issue of left-right-handedness is quite interesting and a valid point especially; when some stats indicate a very high proportion of British citizens are left-handed. However, if it is a factor, it should also reflect on the passing behaviour of both sexes. It is worth exploring further though.
Thanks

I have some data collected from 400 high school students and need to analyze for age and gender based differences. Unfortunately, male samples account for 3/4 of my sample. I was planning to use chi-square tests on SPS. How will the gender skew affect the results? Suggestions and comments please. 
Relevant answer
Answer
Problem with the simple answer is that we expect a sex ratio closer to 50-50. The bias that is skewing the sex ratio may also introduce bias into the data for each sex. So we return to Ariel's question: "how was the sample collected?" This includes every detail, from who interacted with the students, how questions were asked, where they were asked. These factors will interact with social norms, possibly resulting in unintended bias. As Thomas said, it may also be nothing more than the result of having surveyed a population that is naturally skewed male.
The other problem is that the question asked by Aparnna involved "gender based differences." If I analyze the data separately, then I am reduced to evaluating main effects by looking for non-overlapping confidence intervals. This will reduce the number of journals that will accept the manuscript -- pick your ideal journal and look to see what they require for reporting of statistical tests.

BSRI is considered a sound research tool on gender traits. It dates from 1971 and is still held in high regard. But I can't find any results published over the years. It would be helpful in my research regarding individuation - in this case individuals evolving toward a greater masculine-feminine balance.
Relevant answer
Answer
Do you mean results in a study using this tool?  Or results that test the measure/tool for its validity, reliability, and other analysis to show that it is a sound research tool? 
There  is a volume that comes out every year with the title, The Mental Measurements Yearbook , which reviews test and measurements.  Those reviews are very structured analysis that "test" the test and include other statistics on each tool. 
Here is a website and it includes the: Bem Sex-Role Inventory, 9th MMY.  Your uiversity library probably has these volumes.
I hope this helps.

In many south Asian countries including India, Nepal, Bangladesh, women farmers are playing an important role in agriculture. With effects of climatic change more visible and severe than ever, women are evolving their own mechanisms to fight the after effects to mitigate the risk and uncertainty. What are your views on challenges faced by the women and strategies adopted by them to minimize the risk and uncertainty in agricultural production. Any links to studies on this topic are welcome.

Dear K.M. Singh,
This is a question of good education opportunities. Where the daughters of farmers can get good agricultural education, they can use environmentally friendly methods if they can afford them. Equal rights and democracy help to imprease the number of well trained woman farmers.

Recently a bearded transgender performer's victory in the Eurovision song contest, made me think about the validity of the concept of a "third gender", the Hijra of India, the "two spirits" of First Nations, etc. Other than the physical conversion (transsexualism) what shall we think about people who feel "in-between"?
Relevant answer
Answer
I think, it would be better to part from Butler's perspective of a broad variety of genders. Between "male" and "female" (and beyond), there is a infinite variety of possibilities of how to live gender and sexuality. So, the victory of Wurst may be a sign of the breaking down of the old perspective.

And if yes: how and (hypothetically) why? There are somewhat contradictory findings in this field. I am always rather sceptic about gender differences, though, as I suspect that there is a publication bias towards not reporting or not discussing the non-occurrence of gender differences.
Therefore I would like to know your opinion, the references you would rely on most, etc.
I am interested in gender differences on the most general level, i.e. do men and women already differ regarding the self-reports of valence, arousal, pleasant and unpleasant feelings.
Relevant answer
Answer
Der Katharina,
I think this new article then could be interesting for you as well:
Costa A, Foucart A, Hayakawa S, Aparici M, Apesteguia J, et al. (2014) Your Morals Depend on Language. PLoS ONE 9(4): e94842. doi:10.1371/journal.
pone.0094842
They, too, find effects of language (foreign vs. mother's tongue) on moral decisions and attribute it to stronger emotional involvement if reading in one's mother's tongue.
As for gender differences, I think all papers reporting some are worth a closer look: Often, the effect sizes are in fact small or negligible and the content effects by far outweigh them. This is at least what we have found, too.

I want to know the type of role women play in both the domestic as well as the private sphere and also how their domestic roles impact that of their private ones and vice versa. I am researching the participation of women in integrated water resource management and focusing more on the private sphere.
Relevant answer
Answer
Elias, is your study focusing of integrated water management or natural resource management? Integrated water management involves access to and use of water resources for multiple purposes. As highlighted by Brigette, women mainly involved in collecting water for domestic use while man are mainly involved in managing water for irrigation and livestock. however, with the change in economic conditions and climate change gender relations have shifted and it would be nice to see how these have changed in relation to water management both in private and domestic spheres? Power relations influence who has access to the water resources and utility. Women are less involved in decision making on water. I plan to conduct a similar study sometime next year. Good luck.

Need to focus on innovative approaches to getting gender back on the agenda : re-evaluate our strategies on how we can move from “gender fatigue” to gender energy(Kamberidou 2010, Kamberidou & Fabry 2011)
Relevant answer
Answer
Indeed Angela, in patriarchal societies it is a problem that is not isolated to the work place, but in all social institutions. Now with regard to the western or rather anglo-saxon conception of gender or the term gender vs. sex, the main goal is that of gender equity/social equality for both women and men. Integrating a gender perspective is an issue of integrating diversity into the system, as opposed to wasting it. Gender issues (in western societies, in the developed world) do not only concern women! Men have a gender as well. Men also confront social inequalities and discrimination. Gender studies, for example, are not women's studies, they do not focus exclusively on women, as men have a gender as well. Integrating a gender perspective refers to the process of assessing and reassessing the implications for both women and men of any program and action plan at all levels: social, economic, and political. It requires gender-specific interventions, policies, and practices that may target exclusively women or interventions that target men exclusively or even men and women together. In fact, the goal of integrating the gender dimension into the equation is to transform exclusionary or unequal social and institutional structures into equal and just ones for both women and men. For example, an intervention that targets both women and men is Get Online Week 2013, a pan-European awareness campaign empowering people to use technology and the internet- which ties in with the GrandCoalition for Digital Jobs officially launched at a conference in Brussels in early March 2013 - as over 20% Europeans of both genders are young, unemployed, and mostly unaware that by 2015, up to 900,000 vacancies for ICT-related jobs may remain open if jobseekers (men and women) do not acquire the right digital skills. (Kamberidou 2013) So we need to work together to achieve economic growth and sustainable development. Integrating a gender perspective means eliminating the wastage of talent –utilizing all human resources, the entire talent pool - and as a result, boosting innovation which is a prerequisite for economic growth and sustainable development.
