Common missteps in designing gender equality initiatives - and how to avoid them

Trying to “fix” women rather than systems. Failing to go beyond describing the numbers. Being overly optimistic about progress. These are three missteps that are often made when designing and implementing gender equality initiatives.

In this special talk hosted by the King’s Global Institute for Women’s Leadership and King’s Business School, Professor Michelle Ryan, director of our sister institute at the Australian National University, analysed these common missteps and revealed findings from new research that proposes alternative ways of approaching gender equality initiatives.

About Michelle

Professor Michelle Ryan is a world-renowned gender equality expert, Professor of Social and Organisational Psychology, and the inaugural Director of the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership at the Australian National University.

Her work centres on understanding the psychological processes underlying workplace gender inequality and designing and implementing innovative and evidence-based interventions to increase gender equality.

Michelle, along with her colleague Professor Alex Haslam, coined the term “glass cliff” – the phenomenon that describes how women and members of other minority groups are often placed in risky leadership positions, where the chances of failure are higher than usual.

Informed and safe, or blamed and at risk? Examining the merits and limits of domestic violence disclosure schemes in Australia and New Zealand

Informed and safe, or blamed and at risk? Examining the merits and limits of domestic violence disclosure schemes in Australia and New Zealand | Women and Gender Studies | Scoop.it
This project represents the first study in Australia and New Zealand to examine the degree to which a domestic violence disclosure scheme (DVDS) provides an effective intervention for victim-survivors of intimate partner violence in enhancing their safety. The findings from this project are relevant to current policy discussions and evaluations of the DVDS in all Australian states and territories, as well as in comparable international jurisdictions, including New Zealand, Canada, the United States, Scotland, England and Wales.

Ruby Rich’s Dream Library: Feminist Memory-Keeping as an Archive of Affective Mnemonic Practices

Ruby Rich’s Dream Library: Feminist Memory-Keeping as an Archive of Affective Mnemonic Practices | Women and Gender Studies | Scoop.it
In the so-called West, feminist activists and scholars have long been traumatised by the erasure of their histories via dominant patriarchal narratives, which has served as an impediment to the intergenerational transmission of feminist knowledge. Recently, while acknowledging the very real and ongoing impact of this historical omission, some feminists have issued a call to turn away from a narrative of women’s history as ‘serial forgetting’ and towards an acknowledgement of the affirmative capacity of feminist remembering. At the same time, memory theorist Ann Rigney has advocated for a ‘positive turn’ in memory studies, away from what she perceives to be the field’s gravitation towards trauma and instead towards an analysis of life’s positive legacies. In this article, I combine both approaches to investigate one feminist memory-keeper’s archive, analysing what it reveals about ‘the mechanisms by which positive attachments are transmitted across space and time’. Throughout her life, little-known ‘between-the-waves’ Australian feminist Ruby Rich (1888–1988) performed multiple intersecting activist activities. While she created feminist memories through her work for various political organisations, she also collected, stored and transmitted feminist memories through her campaign for a dedicated space for women’s collections in the National Library of Australia. Propelled by fear of loss and inspired by hope for remembering, Rich constructed a brand of archival activism that was both educational and emotional. In this paper, I examine the strategies Rich employed to try to realise her dream of effecting intellectual and affective bonds between future feminists and their predecessors.

Jack and Eve: two women in love and at war with Wendy Moore

Join Wendy Moore as she reveals the remarkable story of the unconventional love and loyalty of Vera ‘Jack’ Holme and Evelina Haverfield, suffragettes, life partners and trailblazing feminists who carved radical new paths for women during the First World War.

Description:

Vera ‘Jack’ Holme and Evelina Haverfield were suffragettes, life partners and trailblazing feminists who carved radical new paths for women during the First World War. Jack worked as a cross-dressing actress before becoming official chauffeur to Emmeline Pankhurst. Eve, the daughter of an English baron, was 14 years older. They met in 1909, fell in love and threw themselves into suffragette action, enduring prison for the cause. When war began, Eve co-founded pioneering organisations to recruit women for war work. Then together they travelled to Serbia, Russia and Romania to run field hospitals for allied soldiers and drive ambulances at huge risk to their lives. Wendy Moore reveals a remarkable story of unconventional love and loyalty.

The Lassies Are No Feart Understanding violence between girls

The Lassies Are No Feart Understanding violence between girls | Women and Gender Studies | Scoop.it

No Knives Better Lives has published a report on violence between girls in Scotland. The report explores the experiences of girls and young women with interpersonal violence, through focus groups and interviews with 16 young women and 4 practitioners. Findings show: disrespect towards family and friends was a common trigger of violence; perceptions of limited support from adults led young women to solving conflict or bullying with violence; young women were both ‘viewers’ and ‘producers’ of harmful content online; and daily exposure to violent content online led to desensitisation

Intersections between violence against children and violence against women

Intersections between violence against children and violence against women | Women and Gender Studies | Scoop.it

There is growing global recognition of the intersections between violence against women and violence against children. The current evidence shows intersections between intimate partner violence against women and violence against children by parents or caregivers, but limited evidence is available on the links between other forms of violence against women and violence against children. Both violence against women by their (male) intimate partners and violence against children by parents or caregivers are widespread globally. This report describes the process used to determine the priorities for research on the intersections between violence against children and violence against women, and the top 10 research questions identified.
