Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment in Academia: The Case of Armenia

Mirzoyan, Mikayel LU (2013) UTVK03 20131
Sociology
Abstract
The aim of the study is to analyze gender equality and women’s empowerment in Armenian academia over the past decade. For these purposes a Subjective Women’s Empowerment index has been developed as a result of data analysis from two small-sized surveys. The theoretical framework primarily draws upon the Human Capital and Subjective Well-being theories. Analysis of the statistical data has provided thought-provoking insights on the relationship of subjective and objective measures, which in some cases strongly differ. Thus, the findings on these conformities and discrepancies laid the foundation for further qualitative research analyzing the causal roots.
