Women in Mauritania : the effects of drought and migration on their economic status and implications for development programs by Melinda Smale( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to indicate potential income-generating programs for women, 67 women in the river region and selected sites in the Assaba and the Guidimakha were interviewed in 1980 to illuminate effects of the 1970s-80s drought and male migration on Mauritanian women. Hypotheses were based on the drought causing unprecedented disruption to Mauritanian society, women (through male migration) either being abandoned or de-facto heads of households, and the desire of Mauritanian women (whose problems could be presented under one common rubric) for income-generating activities. The focus on income generation and current measures of women's status met obstacles in cultural definitions of work, wealth, and other economic indices. Ultimately the fundamental unit of analysis chosen was the household production unit (galle) and camp. Neither drought nor migration is new to Mauritanian society, and each production system has adapted, after its own fashion, to migration. While cultural and social customs inhibit Mauritanian women from advancing rapidly as income producers, a new household division of labor is forming, although women's control over the products of their labor is evolving more slowly. Findings are region-specific and should not be generalized to the whole population; interviews reported at the end of the document went through two stages of translation and should not always be accepted literally.

Access of rural girls to primary education in the Third World : state of art, obstacles, and policy recommendations by Constantina Safilios-Rothschild( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Third World, women's literacy and access to primary education lags behind that of men, and the situation is more accentuated for rural than for urban women. In general, rural women have lower literacy than rural men and than urban women. Because a considerable percentage of girls enrolled in primary school are over 14 years old, marriage, pregnancy, and loss of interest in school often prevent graduation from primary school. Rural girls' access to formal education is the key to their integration into the development efforts of their countries and to better employment and marital options. Primary school education also provides rural women with the option of migration to urban areas. Obstacles to rural women's access to elementary education include: numerous household and childcare responsibilities; competing involvement in productive activities; parents' negative attitudes toward daughters' education; parents' limited financial and educational resources; shortage of schools; shortage of women school teachers and negative attitudes of male teachers; malnutrition and chronic infections; and educational sex-segregation. Policies which would increase access of low income boys and girls to primary education are needed. Additionally, policies directed specifically toward rural girls are needed to increase the probability that girls and boys will benefit equally. (Author/CM)
