Black feminism and intersectionality
On March 9, , a correction was made in the first paragraph of the sub-section entitled “Employment rate of mothers increases with age of the youngest child. This compared to Unemployment patterns by age, province, and reason are also considered, including Employment Insurance claims and beneficiaries. However, gender differences in labour market indicators among young and older women are considered separately at the end of this chapter.
Gender often overlaps with other social characteristics, such as visible minority status, Aboriginal status, immigrant status i. These social characteristics may intersect, creating diverse labour market experiences among women and men.
Similarly, if a Black woman is harmed because she is in an intersection, her injury to combine sex-based and race-based discrimination into a single category of address the particular manner in which Black women are subordinated.”
Ever heard of yellow fever? No, not the disease you can pick up when travelling to certain countries. I’m talking about when Caucasian men develop an acute sexual preference for East Asian women — even becoming a fetish, for some. Naturally, there are dating websites aplenty dedicated to ‘serving’ those men who have yellow fever, where the average East Asian women is increasingly being perceived as a desirable partner. In fact, the most recent figures from 2.
As a Chinese, single woman in the UK – where I have rarely come across racism — my East Asian friends and I have encountered a fair share of men with telltale signs of yellow fever. But it’s subtle, and of course, few would admit to surfing online dating sites for Chinese women, yet when the only girls they date are Chinese, then the probabilities are in their favour. Having said that, I’m surprised at what British men, both young and old, generally get away with when talking about East Asian women Chinese, Japanese, Korean etc.
How China’s one-child policy overhauled girls’ prospects. Miss Saigon, Prince Edward Theatre: ‘superbly slick’. Chinese New Year’s dirty ‘little woman’ secret. Kim Kardashian’s Hollywood app: an unadulterated horror. In Britain, while significant rates of intermarriage between the Chinese and white Caucasian population have demonstrated social integration, the trend is nevertheless heavily skewed towards Chinese women and white men, rather than the other way around.
Part of the bias is down to aesthetics, it would appear, as a study by Cardiff University in on facial attractiveness showed that East Asian women scored highest, while East Asian men came bottom of the pile interestingly, results for black and white individuals did not show discernible differences based on gender.

Sullivan, a Terry E. It is unknown if the effects of caffeine on glucose homeostasis are sex-specific and or dose-dependent. This study examined whether caffeine ingestion would disrupt glucose homeostasis in a dose-dependent or threshold manner. It also examined whether sex-specific responses to caffeine exist. It was hypothesized that women would have an exaggerated response to caffeine, and that caffeine would only impair glucose metabolism once a threshold was reached.
Twenty-four healthy volunteers 12 males, 12 females participated in 4 trials, in a crossover, randomized, and double-blind fashion. Glucose, insulin, C-peptide area under the curve AUC , and insulin sensitivity index data were fitted to a segmented linear model to determine dose—responses. There were no differences between sexes for any endpoints. Despite this exaggerated insulin response, glucose AUC increased by Keywords: caffeine , dose—response , sex-response , glucose tolerance , glucose , insulin , C-peptide.

Why were the bodies of King Saul and his sons burned instead of buried in 1 Samuel ? Since the Jews normally buried and did not burn or cremate their dead, this burning of the bodies of Saul and his sons raises the question as to why they did diffe Adam was the first man that God created, and he was very special. The woman went to Queenstown Polyclinic for a medical checkup on 9 September last year and waited for the clinic to open. Thus, Eve’s sin establishes that woman should not take the lead from man; that route, by the biblical example of our first parents, generally leads to problems.
When a Bible is listed as having multiple printing dates , it does NOT mean that it is a “hodge-podge” of different printings! However, in Bible teachings, marriage is an exclusive romantic and sexual relationship between husband and wife.

Pheromones are substances which are secreted to the outside by an individual and received by a second individual of the same species. Many examples exist in animals but their role in humans remains uncertain since adults have no functioning vomeronasal organ, which processes pheromone signals in animals. Yet pheromones can be detected by the olfactory system although humans under develop and underrate their smelling sense.
Pheromones may be present in all bodily secretions but most attention has been geared toward axillary sweat which contains the odorous androstenes. One of these steroidal compounds, androstadienone, is present at much higher concentrations in male sweat and can be detected by women, albeit with wide variation in sensitivity. Upper-lip application of a pharmacological dose of androstadienonein women results in improved mood and heightened focus – particularly to capture emotional information.
Indeed, some studies showed a beneficial effect of androstadienone on sexual desire and arousal. However, these effects were dependent on the context of the experiment, for example, on the presence of a male attendant. Preliminary evidence suggests that exposure to androstadienone in women promotes attractiveness ratings of potential mates. The senses play a pivotal role in the sexual response of women.

Trousers British English or pants American English first appear in recorded history among nomadic steppe-people in Western Europe. Archaeological evidence suggests that men and women alike wore pants in that cultural context. In many regions, this norm was enforced not only by social custom but also by law. There are, however, many historical cases of women wearing trousers in defiance of these norms, for a variety of reasons, including comfort, freedom of movement, fashion, disguise notably for runaway slaves  , attempts to evade the gender pay gap , and attempts to establish an empowered public identity for women.
Various US cities, in the 19th and 20th centuries, passed legislation barring women from wearing trousers. Representative among these was an law passed by San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors criminalizing appearing in public in “a dress not belonging to his or her sex“, although similar laws existed in Columbus, Ohio passed ; Chicago, Illinois passed ; Houston, Texas passed ; Orlando, Florida passed , and approximately two dozen other US cities. Additionally, existing laws such as anti-vagrancy statutes were pressed into service to ensure that women would dress in accord with the gender norms of the time.
This law was used to prosecute women for cross-dressing, on the grounds that their dressing outside of gender norms constituted a “disguise”. Snodgrass would be arrested again in Cleveland in , and French would be arrested again in New York in French reportedly broke with convention in order to pursue job opportunities open only to men: she claimed to the New York Daily Times that she could “get more wages” dressed as a man.

Parenting in South American and African Contexts. Parenting requires interpersonal skills and makes emotional demands Santrock, According to Santrock, most parents learn parenting practices from their own parents – some they accept and some they discard. The author argues that when parenting methods are passed on from one generation to the next, both desirable and undesirable practices are perpetuated.
These practices may be cultural values which have been passed on from one parent to another. Culture on the other hand is a way of life of a group of people- the behaviours, symbols, values, beliefs that people accept, not really thinking about them and are passed by mostly communication and imitation from one generation to another. With regards to African culture, people perceive most of its practices as something which is devilish in the sense that a lot of its practices are attributed to gods.
Some people especially Africans, who have not fully experienced the indigenous culture believe that to be too culturally aware makes one backward and or ancient. This is as a result of lack of knowledge of our cultural values and principles. In the African system, parenting is again perceived to take a lot of forms which is able to lead the child to be a responsible adult.
Though there are various parenting styles, there are ways in which the African parent brings up a child in order for the child to imbibe the cultural values of the land and also be a responsible adult. Some of these forms of parenting are through story telling folktales , the extended family, traditional rites and the mother’s care, attention and love.
One may ask; are these cultural practices still in vogue? This chapter is an attempt to take readers through some of the parental cultural practices in some African communities.
