Gender-based violence against women in Ghana. Perspectives from the University of Ghana
Mufunda, Svodai
Background: Gender-based violence against women is a global pandemic that violates human rights. This abuse is prevalent among women and girls and adversely impacts their physical well-being, empowerment, and social welfare. GBV against women is influenced by structural gender inequalities and GBV occurrence also widens gender inequalities. Objectives: The study sought to examine the socio-economic impact of GBV on women’s socio-economic status based on a study perspective from the University of Ghana’s Social Work master’s students. The study also sought to ascertain the prevalent forms of GBV against women in Ghana and identify achievements that have been made to protect women from GBV and also to assess legal frameworks and policies available to address GBV against women. Method: The study employed a mixed-method research design and utilized primary data through which semi-structured interviews or questionnaires were responded to by the study respondents. Purposive sampling was used in selecting the 98 respondents of this study. Results: The study reviewed that GBV against women is a serious human rights and development problem with lethal economic and social effects on women. The study highlighted that IPV is the most prevalent form of GBV suffered by women in Ghana. The study also identified the DVA of 2007 as one of the biggest achievements made toward addressing GBV in Ghana. However, several obstacles including poor law enforcement, cultural biases, lack of adequate infrastructure and resources, and poverty have reduced the effectiveness of legislation and institutions governing GBV against women in Ghana and these have also impeded GBV reduction and its effects on women.
Reprodukce na okraji: Morální ekonomie romské fertility
Szénássy, Edit ; Stöckelová, Tereza (advisor) ; Jakoubková Budilová, Lenka (referee) ; Šmídová, Iva (referee)
Situated at the intersections of reproduction, population politics, health care services, and marginality in Central Europe, this dissertation explores the diverse ways Romani women living in precarious circumstances demonstrate reproductive agency. In particular, it examines the ways their agency critically engages with the discourse of responsibilization (Rose 1996, 2007) on the affective and social levels in a context ruled by a moral regime that calls for reproductive governance (Morgan & Roberts, 2012, 2019). Discussion and analysis are based on long- term participant observation in a segregated Romani settlement in Slovakia, as well as a short- term observation of staff and patients at a maternity ward in the Czech Republic. The ethnographic methodology and analysis are inspired by critical medical anthropology and the anthropology of reproduction. Building on this mixed-method approach, the analysis focuses on the individual, communal, and societal aspects of reproductive decision-making. It discloses the significant material and moral constraints surrounding women's reproductive decisions and it shows that marginalized Roma women both revere and refuse the discourses of self- governance, responsibility, and accountability in their reproductive practices. The text tackles the economics of...

Maternity of homeless woman's
This bachelor's work is dedicated to a little discussed topic, which is pregnancy and motherhood of homeless women. These women move among us every day, but few people pay close attention to them and some, perhaps, pretend they don't exist. It is difficult to know why or what circumstances have just brought them this to life. On the basis of interviews, the main goal of this research was to determine which methods of social work within the social services framework have a positive influence on homeless women living with a child in moving them towards a normal way of life. Ideally, facilitating their long term independence of the social security system. In introducing the issue, I will focus on the problems that women or girls bring to the streets, the nature of their motherhood and pregnancy, which is mostly unplanned. I also focused on what future mothers have at starting point, what services they can use, both for themselves and for the unborn descendant. The work is then divided into a theoretical and practical parts. The theoretical part is further divided into sections that address the definition of basic concepts; short history of the forms of and causes that contribute to homelessness; and a brief discussion of social exclusion, which directly belong to this issue. The following chapter is devoted only to homeless women themselves. The theoretical part is the basis of the practical part, which follows and sets out the rationale for the choice of the research questions. A research tool consisting of 21 questions was created to answer these questions forming the main part of the semistructured interview. Given the purpose of the work, I considered it appropriate to choose qualitative research, which examines the issues in more depth. The research sample consists of 8 respondents who were intentionally chosen for the issue. The aim of this bachelor thesis is to highlight the problematics of homelessness, especially women's homelessness, to the general public. I do believe there is not enough attention to this issue. Homelessness is an extremely delicate matter in every society and dealing with it is partially on ability of perceiving it by the general public. It is necessary to talk about causes and consequences of homelessness. It is not possible to turn away from this topic and it is necessary to talk about it, write about it and also think about it.
The Life of Homeless Women in a Selected Region through the Eyes of Themselves
The bachelor thesis deals with the life of homeless women in České Budějovice. The main aim of the thesis is to present the various challenges that are related to the loss of housing, and to find out what the most common causes of homelessness of women in České Budějovice are. The practical part of this bachelor thesis is conducted through the qualitative research strategy. The method of questioning and the technique of semi-structured interview were used. The research sample consists of eight homeless women living in the area of the South Bohemian Region, specifically in České Budějovice. The research sample was selected using the snowball sampling method. The results of the interviews were collected and further processed using the open coding method. Through this method, ten categories with specific codes were created. The results of the research showed that the most common causes of homelessness of women in České Budějovice are domestic violence and unsatisfactory (dysfunctional) relationships with family. The communication partners also shared dissatisfaction with the current situation and stated that they wished to change their situation. It also became apparent that the communication partners consider the absence of stable housing to be the main problem. This bachelor thesis could serve, for example, as a source of information for students or as feedback for social service providers in České Budějovice

Female Characters and the Relationship of Women to Children in Roald Dahl's Children's Fiction
BUBLOVÁ, Kateřina
The aim of the Bachelor thesis is a literary analysis of the characteristics of female characters in Roald Dahl's work for children's readers. Roald Dahl became known as the author of grotesque prose for adults, and his work for children is characterized by black humour, hyperbole, grotesque elements and some controversy of his works (The Witches, George's Marvellous Medicine, etc). The work will firstly introduce Roald Dahl and his work in different categories of readers (children and adult readers) and then will deal with the topic of the author's anti-feminist approach to female characters, especially in Dahl's prose The Witches. The theoretical basis of the work will compare the concept of female characters in the classic fairy tale by Grimm Brothers (Bettelheim) and the characteristics of female characters in Dahl's work for children's readers. The practical part of the work will further assess the influence of role models and model characters on the child reader in Dahl's work for children, including possible controversies in the reading and interpretation. The role of humour, hyperbole and grotesque will be the subject of final analysis within my research as part of the Bachelor thesis.
