No. CZ.03.1.51/0.0/0.0/15_02 8/0003571). \nThe objective of the project was to develop recommendations for action to advance gender equality in research and development for the state administration and other key national players in research policy-making (the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, the Research, Development and Innovation Council, the Czech Science Foundation, the Technology Agency of the CR).

Moreover, the document aims to serve government bodies responsible for gender equality agendas (the Gender Equality Department of the Government of the CR). The measures have been proposed on the assumption that for their successful implementation it is necessary to ensure synergy between the state administration and research and higher education institutions. Due emphasis is also placed on the role and responsibility of senior researchers.\nThe document is unique in that it builds on an in-depth analysis of the working conditions and barriers to career progression in research and development. It is the first study of the working conditions in research in the CR of such a comprehensive nature. The summary of the main findings is presented in the annexes to this document. This is a working document. Its aim is to encourage discussion about the measures proposed. We welcome your feedback, be it in the form of email or as part of face-to-face conversations.

Community property - illusion or reality? The allowance model through the eyes of women
Andreska, Zuzana ; Kobová, Ĺubica (advisor) ; Maříková, Hana (referee)
This diploma thesis concerns the issue of economic autonomy of women in marriage in light of the legal institute of community property. The thesis touches upon the relationship between reproductive and productive labour in today's society and its impact on economic autonomy of women. Using the method of feminist in-depth interview, the author analyses the phenomena of allowance system, which is related to the women's exit from the labour market. The aim of the thesis is to contribute to the economic autonomy of women through uncovering of mechanisms of the emergence, sustaining and rationalisation of the allowance system. The thesis' contribution stems from its analysis of the functioning of allowance system, which is specific for the control men have over family finances. As such, the allowance system deviates from the imperative of solidarity between spouses, which is legally embedded in the institute of community property. The conclusion of the thesis is that the perception of family as a solidary institution which functions on the basis of altruism is an example of ignorance of power hierarchy within families. As a result of this conclusion it is necessary to solve economic autonomy of women on the level of the society as a whole, not on the family level, by making reproductive and productive...

Vohlídalová, Marta ; Tuček, Milan (advisor) ; Maříková, Hana (referee)
The thesis deals with relationships between the labour market and the private, family and partnership life in the contemporary Czech society. The Czech Republic has undergone many changes since the year 1989. Labour market and family and private life are the domains that have been substantially affected be these changes. Attention is focused on the question how working people perceive the influence of the working life on their private and family life under new conditions existing on the labour market (such as increasing job mobility, working-hour flexibility, new ways of the work organisation, and rising unemployment). Another topics discussed in this work are the ways in which people solve questions o f a coordination of two working careers within a couple and the partnership life in a context of professional lives of partners. A comparison of the level of conflict experienced between the working and private life in several European countries is also performed. The present work is based on a quantitative analysis of the two data sources. The first part is based on the data collected in a study involving 5510 respondents, which was done in the Czech Republic in the year 2005. The second part is based on the European Social Survey (ESS) data collected in the years 2004 and 2005. Powered by TCPDF (www.tcpdf.org)

Beranová, Barbora ; Remr, Jiří (advisor) ; Maříková, Hana (referee)
The master thesis called "Harmonization of maternity and professional life of high- income women in Prague" is focused on usage and evaluation of maternity leave promotion. The main research hypothesis is that women are more interested in promotion from the employee side (in flexible forms of work) than from the state side (finance).

As another theoretical perspectives are used relevant researches and Czech and foreign literature review. In order to fulfill the aim of the master thesis were analyzed qualitative half- structured interviews between women from a base population. The conclusion, based on this research is that women from the base population are more interested in promotion from the employee side (in flexible forms of work) than on the promotion from the state side (finance).
Social aspects of the forced community in Terezin
Fictumová, Andrea ; Šalanda, Bohuslav (advisor) ; Maříková, Hana (referee)
This study deals with aspects of the everyday social reality of the forced community in the Terezin ghetto in 1941-1945. It is a microsociological introspection of the life of the prisoners that lived in the ghetto. It aims to define social factors that influenced the lives of people that were stigmatized, fought for their lives and lived in border-line situations. The research part of the study uses biographical method. It uses 10 recorded testimonials of survivors - former Terezin prisoners. The research was carried out by means of partly structured interviews. The questions dealt with internal and external factors that created the daily reality of this forced community. The aim was to map their subjective perception of life conditions, social ties, both negative and positive factors and further personal utterances of the narrators. The testimonies serve for better and deeper understanding of the Terezin reality. The factors that affected the community in a negative way included fear of the unknown, fear of loosing close friends and relatives, very bad life conditions that strongly affected the negative mind-set of people and loss of moral values. In contrast, the positive factors included culture and sports that were welcomed by the prisoners as they allowed them to shift aside gloomy thoughts....
Fashion and its Role in the Social Construction of Gender Boundaries
Polčová, Lenka ; Maříková, Hana (advisor) ; Pospíšilová, Marie (referee)
My bachelor thesis deals with the topic of "Fashion and its role in social construction of gender boundaries" and discusses the function of clothing in the establishment of gender indentities. As a theoretical foundation to my thesis were used the premises of symbolic interactionism from the theory of performativity by Judith Butler. According to symbolic interactionism the gender emerges by performative repetition (Butler 1993), which means that the wearing of certain style of clothing represents one of the ways by which gender is determined. On the other hand, it refuses the idea, that person would be able to attack the gender categories in subversive manner by himself. Feminity and masculinity represent cultural construct , which is nourished by the notion, that men and women have different innermost foundations, with what Butler fundamentally disagrees. The confusion of categories male/female is to great extent noticeable in fashion. The boundaries between female and male fashion are constantly crossed from both sides. Female and male joins together in androgynous fashion, which appears from the onset as possible escape from repressive power of regulative ideal, but it is questionable to what extent it is really hermaphrodite or gender-unloaded, and to what extent it follows the traditional...
