Extension of Working Lives in the Czech Republic: Employee Situation. Policy brief DAISIE project
Křížková, Alena ; Dudová, Radka ; Pospíšilová, Marie ; Heřmanová, Marie
This policy brief summarises research project results examining ageing conditions across three sectors: transport, healthcare and banking. It aims to respond to the still insufficient discussion on the needs and opportunities of women and men of pre-retirement age and in the process of retirement in the Czech labour market. Gender and age inequalities accumulate over the life course resulting in significantly lower pensions for women compared to men or making it impossible to retire with a decent pension. Uniform retirement ages does not suit everyone equally. The organisation of work in specific occupations has specific negative effects on the health of older women and men. Changes in profession, position or working time in pre-retirement age is not easily obtainable. The policy brief suggests recommendations for state and policy makers, employers as well as good practice examples. Also published in Czech:
Fathers'motivations for the presence at childbirth and their experiences in the sociological perspective
Krajíčková, Michaela ; Dudová, Radka (advisor) ; Lupač, Petr (referee)
This theses focuses on finding out the reasons for fathers to be present at childbirth and how they experience childbirth. These goals are viewed from a sociological point of view and therefore the topic is connected with sociological theories and also society's view of the father at birth. The theoretical part also mentions the development of society in terms of fathers at childbirth and related changes in society in connection with intensive fatherhood. The empirical part uses an interpretive phenomenological analysis in the form of a qualitative interview, which is important for a better understanding of respondents. It was found out what are the motives of fathers to go to birth, how they perceive the presence of fathers and how they experience the birth itself. The thesis discusses the influence of personality characteristics on the motives and experiences of fathers based on the information obtained. This research is exploratory and is perceived as a preliminary research for, in the future, quantitative research, which will develop the obtained information and results and thus it will be possible to find out possible connections between the motives for presence at birth and personality characteristics. Based on the information obtained from the interviews, we could say that the most common...
Gender barriers carried out while using shared mobility services
Housová, Viktorie ; Dudová, Radka (advisor) ; Sládek, Jan (referee)
This bachelor thesis focuses on questions of gender inequalities in the field of shared mobility. From statistics of the companies, which run such services is evident, that the users are mostly men. Aim of this thesis was to find out, which barriers do women have to face while using these services. Qualitative research was used as a method to find out these barriers. These interviews were carried out as half-structured and were done with five participants of different ages, education and different opinions on shared mobility and transportation around the city. From the data analysis came out individual topics, that represent barriers for using shared scooters by women. Under these topics fall (non)experience with driving single-track vehicles, care, mobile application, transport in Prague, ownership of a vehicle and availability of the scooter in vicinity. The conclusion of this study is, there is a need of more researches to be carried out. These researches should help confirm the existing barriers which have been identified and also identify new gender barriers in the field of shared mobility and mikromobility.
Menstruation in the area of paid work
Poncarová, Petra ; Dudová, Radka (advisor) ; Lupač, Petr (referee)
(in English) This thesis deals with how women experience and interpret menstruation in the world of paid work. First, the theoretical basis concerning menstruating bodies in society and the position of women in the workplace in connection with menstruation is presented. Through exploratory research and grounded theory method, the work seeks to capture, primarily on the basis of answers obtained from qualitative interviews, how Czech women cope with menstruation in the workplace. The main research question is "How do women experience and interpret menstruation in the world of paid work?" Secondary research questions are "Do women experience discrimination during work because of menstruation?" and "Do women think that menstruation limits their work performance?" The responses from the communication partners show that women face a number of obstacles in doing their paid work, which can discriminate them. Furthermore, it has been found that menstruation more or less restricts women in their work performance. And the thesis focuses, among other things, on how women talk about menstruation in their work environments.

Pfeiferová, Štěpánka ; Šubrt, Jiří (advisor) ; Dudová, Radka (referee)
The thesis "Women in the Role of Breadwinners and Care-takers: Work and Family Strategies of Single Mothers. Qualitative Inquiry" was written on the bases of a qualitative inquiry concerning the mutual relationship of single mother's work and private lives which is a part of the research "The Context of Changes in the Labour Market and Forms of Private, Family and Partner Life in Czech Society", carried out by the Gender and Sociology Department of the Institute of Sociology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. The first part tries to survey the important labour market changes and the most distinctive family behaviour trends after 1989. The analytic part has as its subject to observe the mutual relationship of the changes within the two fields on a particular group of single mothers. To seize the problem, the method of semi-structured qualitative interviews was used, completed by a statistical analysis of previous representative survey data. The procedures applied should have helped to find an answer to the two key questions: In which way the current labour market demands reflect in the partnerships' fragility and How the single mothers' family situation affects their work behaviour. It reveals that structural changes of the labour market are closely related to the family-life modifications. It...
Cloning, expression and purification of human AKR1C3
Dudová, Radka ; Wsól, Vladimír (advisor) ; Novotná, Eva (referee)
Charles University in Prague Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové Department of Biochemical Sciences Candidate: Dudová Radka Supervisor: Prof. Ing. Vladimír Wsól, Ph.D Title of diploma thesis: Cloning, expression and purification of human AKR1C3 The purification of the vector pOTB7 containing the coding sequence ( CDS ) of aldo-keto reductase 1C3 ( AKR1C3 ) in Escherichia coli ( E.coli ) cells was performed by an alkaline lysis method. The coding sequence was then amplified by polymerase chain reaction. Result accuracy of the demonstrated step was shown by verification of the size of the synthesized fragment and by a restrictive analysis with the restriction endonuclease PvuII. In the second step, the coding sequence was ligated into the Topo 2.1 vector which was transformed into competent E. coli cells. The cells were multiplied and Topo 2.1 vector with the inserted code sequence was obtained by the alkaline lysis method. The result was verified by comparing of the size of the Topo 2.1 vector without inserted CDS and the vector Topo 2.1 with the CDS on an agarose gel and the subsequent restrictive analysis with the restriction endonuclease HindIII. The coding sequence was verified by the sequenation. There was also carried out the subcloning of the CDS from the Topo 2.1 vector into the express...
Mother-infant bonding - a historical comparison
Slezáková, Zdeňka ; Dudová, Radka (advisor) ; Šmídová, Olga (referee)
Bonding is an emotional and biological process that creates a bond between a mother and her child and is among others important for easier breastfeeding, faster recovery of the mother etc. It is important to support it by an early contact between the mother and her newborn child. The diploma thesis aims to compare the discourse regarding mother-infant bonding and its support in our country around the year of 1980, when the rooming-in system appears, up to the present, with the milestone between 1998 and 2000, when the Centre of Active Birth was established as a result of changes in birth care that occurred then and which started to offer a different kind of care from the model that was known and used in the Czech Republic at that time. Emphasis will be put on the development of the discourse, changes in birth and after-birth care it has brought and changes of its participants and the role which women have as receivers of care. The theoretic part introduces the relatively little-known term 'bonding' and its support from the biological and social points of view, then discourse analysis will be applied in the methodological and experimental parts of the thesis. Analysed materials included media communication both in printed and electronic forms available at each analysed period. Keywords:...
The Experience of New Social Media
Farrier, Ellie ; Dudová, Radka (advisor) ; Německý, Marek (referee)
-The Experience of New Social Media Communication with friends and family around the world is something that American expats in Prague have much experience with. Throughout this study, the author has attempted to relate in-depth user experiences with social media to both new media and historical sociology concepts, in order to better understand how social media is used and understood. The phenomenological research conducted focuses on varied user experiences of four Americans expats currently living in Prague, Czech Republic. The experiences explored begin with the respondents' adolescent experiences with social media and the internet, and continue through their current age as young adults. The sources used to interpret and understand these user experiences range from Erving Goffman and Pierre Bourdieu, to Marshall McLuhan and Karl Marx. The author's goal in the study was to test how both historical and new media theories hold true to concrete user experiences with social media and the internet. Keywords: user experience, media, technology, phenomenological research, social media, communication
