Factors impacting on menstrual hygiene and their implications for health promotion( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Background: In the lives of women, puberty is marked by the onset of menarche. From this stage onwards until menopause, reproductive health and menstrual hygiene are important aspects of women’s lives. In Zambia’s Western Province, the natural process of menstruation is a taboo and dealt with secretly. Information and knowledge about menstruation and menstrual hygiene among adolescent girls is inadequate. This paper explores the factors influencing the understanding, experiences and practices of menstrual hygiene among adolescent girls in Mongu District, Western Province of Zambia. Methods: An explorative study design was used by means of six focus group discussions conducted with 51 respondents, aged 13–20 years, from three secondary schools. Their age at menarche was 11–15. For data analysis thematic content analysis was used. Results: The paper shows that the girls suffer from poor menstrual hygiene, originating from lack of knowledge, culture and tradition, and socio-economic and environmental constraints, leading to inconveniences, humiliation and stress. This leads to reduced school attendance and poor academic performance, or even drop outs, and ultimately infringes upon the girls’ human rights. Conclusion: To address these shortcomings, a ‘super setting approach’ is recommended, in which a Health Promoting School could improve the girls’ individual and group needs, and a community setting which would address the broader socio-economic, cultural and environmental conditions. This would enable creating a supportive environment for the girls to manage their periods. To successfully utilize the approach, all stakeholders (parents, teachers, children, governments and communities) should cooperate to generate context-specific solutions for creating safe menstrual care, and better and dignified conditions for adolescent girls. Therefore, this calls for comprehensive, strident advocacy for policy changes at national level, and mediation and involvement at community level
Coming of age? Women's sexual and reproductive health after twenty-one years of democracy in South Africa( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: This paper is a sequel to a 2004 article that reviewed South Africa's introduction of new sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and rights laws, policies and programmes, a decade into democracy. Similarly to the previous article, this paper focuses on key areas of women's SRH: contraception and fertility, abortion, maternal health, HIV, cervical and breast cancer and sexual violence. In the last decade, South Africa has retained and expanded its sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) policies in the areas of abortion, contraception, youth and HIV treatment (with the largest antiretroviral treatment programme in the world). These are positive examples within the SRHR policy arena. These improvements include fewer unsafe abortions, AIDS deaths and vertical HIV transmission, as well as the public provision of a human papillomavirus vaccine to prevent cervical cancer. However, persistent socio-economic inequities and gender inequality continue to profoundly affect South African women's SRHR. The state shows mixed success over the past two decades in advancing measurable SRH social justice outcomes, and in confronting and ameliorating social norms that undermine SRHR. Résumé: Cet article fait suite à une publication de 2004 qui examinait l'introduction de nouvelles lois, politiques et programmes de santé et droits sexuels et génésiques en Afrique du sud, dix ans après l'avènement de la démocratie. Comme en 2004, l'article est axé sur les principaux domaines de la santé sexuelle et génésique des femmes: contraception et fécondité, avortement, santé maternelle, VIH, cancer du sein et du col de l'utérus, et violence sexuelle. Au cours de la dernière décennie, l'Afrique du sud a conservé et élargi ses politiques de santé et de droits sexuels et génésiques dans les domaines de l'avortement, de la contraception, des jeunes et du traitement du VIH (avec le plus grand programme de traitement antirétroviral au monde). Il s'agit là d'exemples positifs dans le domaine des politiques de santé et droits sexuels et génésiques. Ces améliorations incluent un recul des avortements à risque, des décès dus au sida et de la transmission verticale du VIH, de même que l'administration dans le secteur public d'un vaccin contre le papillomavirus humain afin de prévenir le cancer du col de l'utérus. Néanmoins, la persistance des inégalités socio-économiques et de genre continued'influencer profondément la santé et les droits sexuels et génésiques des femmes sud-africaines. L'État affiche des succès nuancés ces vingt dernières années pour relever les résultats mesurables de justice sociale dans le domaine de la santé et des droits sexuels et génésiques, et pour confronter et améliorer les normes sociales qui minent ce secteur. Resumen: Este artículo es la continuación de un artículo redactado en el año 2004, que revisó la introducción en Sudáfrica de nuevos programas, leyes y políticas de salud y derechos sexuales y reproductivos (SSR y DD. SS. RR.), tras una décadade democracia. De manera similar al artículo de 2004, este artículo se enfoca en las áreas clave de la SSR de las mujeres: anticoncepción y fertilidad, aborto, salud materna, VIH, cáncer del cérvix y de mama, y violencia sexual. En la última década, Sudáfrica ha conservado y ampliado sus políticas referentes a la salud y los derechos sexuales y reproductivos en las áreas de aborto, anticoncepción, juventud y tratamiento del VIH (con el mayor programa de tratamiento antirretroviral del mundo). Estos son ejemplos positivos en el campo de las políticas sobre SSR/DD. SS. RR. Estas mejoras incluyen un menor número de abortos inseguros, muertes por SIDA y transmisión del VIH, así como la provisión pública de una vacuna contra el virus del papiloma humano para prevenir el cáncer cervical. Sin embargo, persistentes inequidades socioeconómicas y desigualdad de género continúan afectando profundamente la SSR/DD. SS. RR. de las mujeres sudafricanas. El estado muestra un éxito desigual en las últimas dos décadas en promover resultados mensurables de justicia social en SSR y en confrontar y mejorar las normas sociales que debilitan la SSR/DD. SS.

Experiences of women's center professionals by Colleen Marie Riggle( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Despite the over half-century history of campus-based women's centers, little research has investigated the work experiences of directors of such centers. This qualitative study used narrative analysis to investigate the work experiences of women's center professionals in a director role in a student affairs division. Bolman and Deal's (2013) Four Framework Approach to leadership provided the conceptual framework to explore the experiences of campus-based women's center professionals. Three themes emerged from the participants' stories: program development, student interactions, and staff size. Program development was central to participants' role by offering educational programs and support to women students. Students who identify as LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer), feminist, and student organizations, were overwhelmingly significant to the work experience of women's center professionals. Almost all participants shared a small staff size experience as common. Participants with varying personal demographics and years of student affairs experience in different types of institutions all shared stories of successful, salient, and challenging experiences. Finally, the study found that some but not all participants engaged in positive self-care practices in an effort to establish a sustainable work/life balance
Exploring the lived experiences of homeless college students : alumni reflections about persistence by India Lucretia Blackburn( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Homeless students who attend college often find it difficult to persist to graduation. The purpose of this phenomenological research study was to explore the phenomenon of college students who experienced homelessness and illustrate the essence of homeless college students' experiences by eliciting and examining the factors that contribute to homeless college students' persistence to graduation. Seven formerly homeless college student alumni participated by providing their description of the factors that supported their persistence to graduation. This study found five themes related to how the participants experienced homelessness while pursuing an education, and how the institutional environment contributed to their ability to persist in college. The themes included: the institutional obligation to homeless college students; the campus environment; emotional support; the strengths of homeless college students; and the needs of homeless college students. Using these themes as a guide, the study identified recommendations to support homeless college students' persistence and academic success. The recommendations included providing greater institutional support, the importance of identifying an institutional agent, making financial resources available, and extending the hours for campus offices and services. It was recommended that future studies explore identified barriers to persistence for homeless college students, along with their tenacity, financial literacy, fear of disclosure, use of first person language to describe this population and graduation rates. This study contributes to much needed literature on the homeless college student
Strong enough to bear the children, then get back to business : the experiences of Black mothers in higher education doctoral programs at predominantly White institutions by Jennifer A'Lise Mitchell( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Very little literature informs our knowledge regarding the experiences of Black mother doctoral students at predominantly White institutions (PWIs) as it relates to race and gender. Researchers have identified that Black women doctoral studies report different experience due to their race and gender (Gardner, 2008; Patton, 2009; Sol©đrzano, Ceja, & Yosso, 2000; Winkle-Wagner, 2009). The experiences of Black mothers and their educational experiences in doctoral programs in higher education at PWIs is often unnoticed. This research explored the lived experiences of Black mothers enrolled in higher education programs at PWIs. Situated in Black feminist thought (Collins, 2009) and a non-deficit approach (Harper, 2010), this study illustrated how the experiences of Black mother doctoral students successfully navigated and persisted through doctoral study. Using semi-structured interviews the author identified three themes that influence the persistence and success of Black mothers in doctoral programs in higher education. The three core themes identified were: 1) Socialization, 2) Development of resiliency and self-worth, and 3) Utilization of familial, personal, and academic supports

"It feels nice to be able to share and be heard" : supporting veganism as an avowed identity in college students by Rose Lane Tahash( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Encouragement of social identity acceptance and exploration during college is present for many students but, for some, is not the accepted norm and unwelcome. Much like students who choose to adopt a religious identity, veganism is a salient social identity for many people. College students who are vegan have not been studied in-depth in terms of how they experience college campuses in relation to this minority social identity. Understanding how college students who are vegan experience college is of use to higher education to support and life up this avowed lifestyle choice and identity
