Effectiveness Of Female American Managers During Foreign Assignments

- Charles M. Vance and Yongsun Paik conducted a survey about the “effectiveness of female American managers in foreign assignments” (“Where Do American Women face their biggest obstacle”, Vance, Paik 102). The goal of the survey was to figure out if the U.S. selection bias actually corresponded with the thoughts of host countries. Vance and Paik came up with two hypotheses: “H1: Business managers in the assigned countries would not hold American women to their own countries’ culturally-driven norms and expectations that restrict female involvement in business interactions H2: American managers at corporate headquarters tend to hold lower expectations about the potential career success” (Vanc...   [tags: Female, Male, Expatriate, Sex]

Individuals have traditional roles that they play which are based on the historical performance of their gender. Although very rigid, these traditional roles are frequently transferred, resulting in an altered and undefinable identity that exists beyond the boundaries of gender. These transgressions into the neuter role are characterized by a departure from the normal roles of society which, if successful, complete the gender transference and allow the individual to live within a new set of boundaries....   [tags: Coquette Female]

Firstly, Dyer mentions that “the penis is also the symbol of male potency, the magic and mystery of the phallus, the endowment that appears to legitimate male power” (Dyer 2013, 113). That is to say, the penis is considered the ultimate force of dominance for men, although it is said that the penis is “far more commonly the soft, vulnerable charm of male genitals” (Dyer 2013, 113)....   [tags: Gender, Gender role, Sexual intercourse, Female]

The elusiveness of these women gives them a two-dimensional quality and makes the invocation of these female figures seem like its sole function in the poem is to be an instrument through which Wordsworth can convey his beliefs....   [tags: Poetry, William Wordsworth, Woman, Female]
