2.2 Theoretical Framework 2.2.1 Gender Stereotypes: Masculinity and Femininity Brannon (2004), defines gender stereotype as beliefs about the psychological traits and characteristics of, as well as the activities appropriate to, men or women. Gender roles are interpreted by behaviours, but gender stereotypes are about the beliefs, views and attitudes towards masculinity and femininity. Therefore, gender stereotypes are very influential; they impact conceptualizations of women and men and establish social categories for each gender. These categories represent what people think, and even when beliefs vary from reality, the beliefs can be very powerful forces in judgments of self and others. He further classifies gender stereotype in two categories
Wollstonecraft blamed the upbringing and education of women for creating their limited expectations by the dominant males surrounding them. Wollstonecraft believed that both male and female donated to equality. She took women's sizeable power over men for granted, and determined that both would need education to ensure the necessary changes in social attitudes towards feminism. Her main article was called 'A Vindication of the Rights of Woman'. Wollstonecraft insists that all women should have an education that is equivalent to their position in society.
At most it suggests distal inﬂuence by males, with the proximal inﬂuences on speciﬁc women’s and girls’ sexuality being female. General Discussion The cultural suppression of female sexuality is of considerable interest both in its own right and as an important instance of cultural inﬂuence over sexual behavior. On the basis of previous writings, we identiﬁed two major theories regarding the source of this suppression. One of them depicted men as conspiring to suppress female sexuality, as a way of controlling women, ensuring peace and order in society, and reducing the risk of wifely inﬁdelity. The other theory depicted women as cooperating to restrict each other’s sexuality, mainly as a way of ensuring that the exchange of sex for other
The second model of gender, which I call “categorical theory”, treats women and men as pre-formed categories. This approach often appeals, explicitly or implicitly, to the biological difference of the sexes as the explanation of social behaviour. The focus is on some relation between the categories, which is external to their constitution as categories. This is, for instance, the logical structure underlying most discussion of equal employment opportunity. It is also found in much of the discussion of sexual harassment and gender violence.
Mills (1995:21) is of the opinion that words could only be sexist depending on the context. However, she argues for the importance of analysing texts at a word-level by stating that certain word-uses reflect gender differences. The tradition of viewing men as the norm in language is evident at word-level by the use of generic words. Generic words are often the same word that is used when describing the masculine variant (Pauwels 2003:553). Mills (1995:87-89) states that the most common examples are when “he” and “man” are used for referring to both women and men.
The purpose of the study is to bring together different streams of RH research, namely on unsafe abortion, sex selective abortions and the adverse socio-economic effects these have on women and society in India. Reproductive health services in India (and in other parts of the world) are an important indicator of national response to women’s needs and the public health infrastructure (or the lack thereof), and it is imperative (and useful!) to take into consideration global advocacy in order to validate arguments for Comprehensive Abortion Care and to evidence a case against gender disparity. The specific objectives of this discursive analysis are to provide: 1. Increased clarity about the status of medical termination of pregnancies in
