Questions related to Gender Analysis
Hello Women leaders of tomorrow,
Hope you are having a lovely start to this year. You all have a very unique experience in your life, especially in workplaces. I, thus, want to know about your experiences when you are at your college, or offices.
I am trying to do a study to analyse your experiences and would love if you could spare a few minutes of your time to fill our survey out. Your insight will be greatly appreciated and would help in our understanding of your perceptions.

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?
If I’m looking at language variation, and expecting a gender difference between ‘style’ and ‘content’, and how does that interact with different meanings of a specific terms used by male or female? i.e. one would be more content-ful than the other?

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!
I am trying to find some theoretical evidence for the fact that on personal-self construal level western nations(egalitarian) are less stereotypical when it comes to gender roles, if compared to eastern nations , but i couldn’t . Can you please help me in this regard and recommend some reads.
I found : own gender beliefs is higher (vs. lower) in eastern (vs. western) countries when considering other-stereotyping and when social comparison is salient, but the reverse was found when considering self-reporting, that is self-stereotyping.
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.
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!
Hi everyone, I'm writing a dissertation about portrayal of women in newspaper before independence (1926-1927) using discourse analysis. I'm using Discursive Psychology as a framework but had been rejected by panel because it's for spoken discourse. One of the panel suggest to use positive discourse. I try to find out about it but not so much contribute to my research. Any suggestions of journal & extra reading would be appreciated! Thank you!

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.

I have recently been made aware of a possible unexpected gender pattern involving Twitter - It may be the case than many females like to see personal information mixed with professional posts whereas males want them compartmentalized. Not sure if this is true but it made me wonder if there are other possible gender differences. I have observed, for example, a recent list of "supposed" education technology leaders promoted by a blog, only to find 80-90% of the leaders were male? Your thoughts?

I need help identifying a scale (see below). A former research assistant of mine incorrectly labeled this scale as Roccas et al.'s (2008) Measure of Identification with Groups.

1. I have a lot in common with other lesbians.
2. I have strong ties to other lesbians.
3. I find it difficult to form a bond with other lesbians.
4. I don't feel a strong sense of being connected to other lesbians.

I am doing a paper discussing the sexual assaults that have occurred on university grounds. It has been suggested that I also look at the decisions makers in relation to the implementation of policy and follow-up investigations to such events. As far as I can see many of these decision are made by men, and the majority of the security force staff are a ratio of 8:1 (or higher). When I look at research papers discussing security process they appear to be all written by men, and yet the papers discussing sexual assaults are written by women.

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.

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"?
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.
