Comparison of Feminine Gender Norms among Spanish and American College Women  [PDF]
María del Pilar Sánchez-López, Isabel Cuéllar-Flores
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2011.24047
Abstract: This article describes the psychometric characteristics of the Conformity to Feminine Norms Inventory (CFNI; Mahalik et al., 2005) in a group of Spanish college women (n = 383), and explores cross-cultural differences in feminine role norms. Factor analysis reveals a profile similar to the one obtained in the USA and, albeit differing in some aspects, in general it supports the authors’ proposed structure. Reliability and corelations between sub- scales were adequate. Participants endorsed less traditional views toward 4 of the 8 feminine norms of the CFNI and reported significantly less conformity than comparable American students. Only the Domestic norm re- ceived greater endorsement by Spanish women in this group. The findings support the suitability of the CFNI for use in the Spanish group and establish an empirical base for future studies of Spanish femininity. Cross-country differences are discussed.

Abstract: backgrounds: since the immigrant population is increasing in our country and our zone of health, and has a higher incidence of cervix cancer, so, the possibility considers of knowing which is the situation of the screening of cancer of cervix in this population and comparing it with the local population. objective: to compare the percentage of accomplishment of vaginal cytology between the latin american immigrant population and the local population of a primary health care center. design: cross-sectional descriptive observacional study. material and methods: in an urban center of health, we studied the sample of 153 latin american women immigrants and 153 spanish women (aged paired sample) of 18 to 65 years, on which socio-demographics data and on the attendance to the primary health care center and the accomplishment of cytologies and frequency took shelter. the data by percent comparison and chi square test were analyzed. results: there were significant differences between both groups in the percentage of women that had been made cytology (25.5% immigrants as opposed to 43.8% non immigrants). also between that they had not been made it (58.8% as opposed to 41.2%). in the different aged intervals only there were differences in the one of 30 to 39 years. conclusions: since the immigrants women present/display a smaller percentage of accomplishment of cytology we would have to consider the way to improve this cover in this immigrant population, since when having one more a higher incidence of cervix cancer can be benefited more from the sifting program that the spanish population.
La actividad laboral de las mujeres en Espa?a: Retos económicos y sociales del sistema impositivo y de seguridad social
Villagómez,Elizabeth;
Gaceta Laboral , 2005,
Abstract: this article describes the situation of women in the spanish labour market and links this situation to the existing social security and taxation systems in spain. the low participation rates, in relation to the european union averages, as well as high unemployment rates, and higher instability in the labour market in general have been identified as the main reason for low fertility rates of women in spain and also in other european union countries such as italy. the lack of participation or discontinuous participation in the labour market and the strength of the traditional gender division of labour in the household is an obstacle for women's full access to economic and social rights as workers. the higher dependency of women on non-contributive benefits and the lack of social services for the care of children and dependent adults result in a system that can be described as giving women "a choice" but without any state support. although the extended family culture in spain is very strong, recent social trends such as the increase in the age of the mother at first birth, urbanization, ageing of society and a high influx of immigrants is putting strains on women and promoting the need to make rather urgent reforms that are sensitive to this situation.

Estudios filológicos , 2011, DOI: 10.4067/S0071-17132011000100006
Abstract: three aspects of the works of leonor lópez de córdoba, constanza de castilla and teresa de cartagena, the most important women writers in castille during the middle ages, have been taken into account by critics and are to be analysed here: doubts about the authorship, the feminine audience and religious models. the important role of the notary in leonor lópez de córdoba's memories, the plagiarism in teresa de cartagena's arboleda de los enfermos, the feminine audience in constanza de castilla's libro de devociones y oficios, and the virgin maria as the main character, will be some questions that we are going to explore in this paper.
Los estudios históricos sobre las mujeres en la historiografía espa?ola: Notas sobre su evolución y perspectivas
Cid López,Rosa María;
La aljaba , 2006,
Abstract: this essay deals with the development of history research on women and its influence on spanish historiography. the peculiar nature of the political situation of contemporary spain has slowed down the progress of feminism and, consequently, any interest in research on women. however, spanish women historians make use of methods of analysis and theoretical frameworks that are similar to those employed by our foreign - especially european - colleagues. a representative example of that would be the debate that has emerged between those who support the idea of a social history of women versus those in favour of a history of gender relations, among others. special attention is paid to the work of the pioneers in introducing women as objects of historical analysis and as well as to the journal arenal and to aeihm (the spanish association for the research on women's history). all of them show the vitality of history research on women in spanish research centres.
La matanza de los inocentes: Intelectuales cubanas en defensa del ni?o espa?ol
BINNS,NIALL;
Anuario Colombiano de Historia Social y de la Cultura , 2011,
Abstract: the article studies the impact that the spanish civil war and, specifically, the images of children killed during the air raids on madrid and other republican cities had on seven cuban women intellectuals. these images, disseminated by the press and cinema newsreels, recur obsessively in the writings of mariblanca sabas alomá, serafina nú?ez, berta arocena, mirta aguirre, fina garcía marruz, emma pérez, and teté casuso. following the prestigious example of gabriela mistral, these cuban intellectuals appeal to their "maternal" sensibility in order to express their compassion and justify their indignation and political activism in defense of spanish children.

Abstract: introduction: we studied the differences on physical fitness, fatness and cardiovascular profile in spanish and moroccan women. material and methods: the study comprised 63 and 58 women aged 45-65 years from south of spain and north of morocco, respectively. we assessed fitness and body composition using standard procedures. we also assessed resting heart rate (rhr), blood pressure, fasting glucose, total cholesterol, ldl-cholesterol, hdl-cholesterol and triglycerides. results and discussion: moroccan women had a better performance in the main health-related physical fitness components, i.e. higher levels of cardiorespiratory fitness (p = 0.01) and (lower-body) muscular strength (p < 0.001). diastolic blood pressure (p = 0.004), rhr and total cholesterol (both p = 0.04) were lower in moroccan women. no differences were observed in the prevalence of metabolic syndrome. conclusions: the women from morocco had a healthier fitness and cardiovascular profile than the women from spain. further research on physical fitness and other health indicators in understudied populations is needed.
