Engendering Hope: Women’s (Dis)engagement in Change in Afghanistan

Engendering Hope: Women’s (Dis)engagement in Change in Afghanistan Afghan women’s human rights are a crucial concern for the international community and the government in Afghanistan. Framed by hope theory, this study captured Afghan women’s understandings of recent realities, particularly those focused on expanding women’s roles in Afghan life and community. Based on focus groups with 107 women conducted in 10 different locations, findings reveal that many Afghan females are conditioned into self-perceptions that may undermine their capacity to believe they are worthy of human rights, education, and freedom from oppression. A discussion on agency, pathways, sociocultural influences, and education for hope in Afghan women’s future is presented. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Adult Learning SAGE

Abstract

Afghan women’s human rights are a crucial concern for the international community and the government in Afghanistan. Framed by hope theory, this study captured Afghan women’s understandings of recent realities, particularly those focused on expanding women’s roles in Afghan life and community. Based on focus groups with 107 women conducted in 10 different locations, findings reveal that many Afghan females are conditioned into self-perceptions that may undermine their capacity to believe they are worthy of human rights, education, and freedom from oppression. A discussion on agency, pathways, sociocultural influences, and education for hope in Afghan women’s future is presented.
