Women in migration : a third world focus by International Center for Research on Women( Book )

14 editions published in 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spurred in part by the apparent contradiction between recent data on the magnitude of autonomous female migration and the lack of acknowledgment of that data in recent literature, a 1979 study attempted to define women migrants in 46 Third World Countries in terms of age, marital status, socioeconomic status, factors motivating migration, and effects of migration. Because data from publications, national censuses, and studies frequently did not focus on autonomous female migrants, researchers constructed a sex differential migration index. While many regional differences existed in the areas studied (Africa, Asia, Central America, the Middle East, South America), female outmigration generally dominated only among migrants over age 50. Most female migrants were adolescent, in their early twenties, or over 50. Most were single and had less education than male migrants. A growing percentage migrated, often in step-wise fashion, for economic reasons. Having migrated to urban areas, many female migrants found themselves in low-paying, low status jobs. Researchers noted increased family responsibilities for female migrants and for rural wives of male migrants, and the weakening effect of serious economic dimensions of women's migration and on autonomous female migration.

First published in 1982, this collection was the result of an ambitious and wide-ranging, inter-disciplinary research programme conducted by the International Labour Office (ILO) on the relationship between women's roles and demographic change, with a view to influencing contemporary government and non-government policy and future research in the field. The ILO held an informal gathering of leading researchers in the fields of economics, anthropology, sociology and demography and this volume represents a unique and practically-orientated collection, offering valuable insights into contemporary perspectives on women's studies and population dynamics

Women and their professional future : an assessment of training needs and training programs in Morocco by Nadia Haggag Youssef( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the professional future of women in Morocco. There are five major sections. Section one provides background information about the report. An exploratory trip was made to Morocco to (1) investigate ways to promote the entry of a large number of women into the public sector and social service agencies and to upgrade those women who are currently employed into more responsible positions, and (2) identify local training organizations which do or can operate training programs for women. Section two describes the educational system of Morocco. There is a great deal of failure and withdrawal at all levels. Section three, entitled "Identification of Training Needs," deals first with common themes that emerged in discussions regarding particular areas of training for which there is national need and then identifies the particular segment of the female population which is in greatest need to participate in any projected training program. This is followed by a listing of some particular needs for training and supportive assistance which were articulated by specific organizations or individuals. Section four examines the opportunities for and constraints working against the promotion of women in the civil service. Emphasis is given in this discussion to existing mechanisms which might be maximized to work more favorably in the interest of women's upward mobility in the public sector. The report ends with a brief discussion in section five of what the policy implications might be for the different types of training programs. (Author/RM)

An evaluation of non-formal educational programs for women in Morocco : joint report by Nadia Haggag Youssef( Book )

3 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Morocco's existing non-formal education programs involving women (Foyers Feminins and Ouvroirs) cater to female adolescents from low-income families and are almost entirely oriented to the teaching of traditional feminine crafts. Efforts are being made by both programs to introduce non-craft training in areas related to the modern economic sector. Other government-sponsored non-formal educational programs involving women include Handicraft Training, Commercial Training, and Hotel Training. However, women are severely limited in access to these vocational training programs. Although Ouvroirs Training Centers are commended for their market-orientation, organization of trainees into production units, and reorientation in basic training objectives to upgrade the scholastic component, neither the Foyers Feminins program nor the Ouvroir Centers are fully responsive to changing social and economic conditions. Recommendations include: strengthening of Foyers Feminins and Ouvroir curricula to make them more responsive to both remedial education needs and economic prospects of female adolescents; expansion of the current vocational training system to extend industrial training to both sexes; expansion of commercial training opportunities for women; and establishment of special training programs for rural women in agriculture-related fields.
