In 1987, more than a decade before the dawn of queer theory, Ifi Amadiume wrote Male Daughters, Female Husbands, to critical acclaim. This compelling and highly original book frees the subject position of 'husband' from its affiliation with men, and goes on to do the same for other masculine attributes, dislocating sex, gender and sexual orientation. Boldly arguing that the notion of gender, as constructed in Western feminist discourse, did not exist in Africa before the colonial imposition of a dichotomous understanding of sexual difference, Male Daughters, Female Husbands examines the structures in African society that enabled people to achieve power, showing that roles were not rigidly masculinized nor feminized. At a time when gender and queer theory are viewed by some as being stuck in an identity-politics rut, this outstanding study not only warns against the danger of projecting a very specific, Western notion of difference onto other cultures, but calls us to question the very concept of gender itself.

This extraordinary book combines social history, anthropology, religion, politics, women's studies to chart a genealogy of class transformation in the 20th century. Using the idea of a collectivist, humanist culture of traditional African matriarchal heritage, Ifi Amadiume contrasts daughters of the Goddess to a corrupt and oppressive culture of imperialism that she argues is the heritage of contemporary elite-led women's organizations. She examines, analyzes and critiques histories, concerns and activities of such organizations in Nigeria, making comparisons with those in Britain and South Africa as well as international movements.

Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich BWL - Controlling, Note: keine, , 19 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In jüngster Zeit taucht in der Literatur im Zusammenhang mit Wissensmanagement der Begriff Wissenscontrolling auf. Es werden dabei zwar immer wieder einige Aufgaben und Funktionen von Wissenscontrolling wie das Setzen von Wissenszielen und die Überprüfung deren Erfüllung angesprochen, es gibt jedoch noch kaum in sich geschlossene Ansätze und Konzeptionen für ein Wissenscontrolling. Aus diesem Grund wird im folgenden Abschnitt, ausgehend von einer bestehenden Controlling-Konzeption, ein Wissenscontrolling-Ansatz entwickelt. Zu diesem Zweck soll zu Beginn ein kurzer Überblick über die gängigen Controllingauffassungen in der Literatur und Praxis gegeben werden. Aufbauend auf koordinationsorientierten Controlling-Konzeptionen wird dann ein Ansatz für das Wissenscontrolling entwickelt. Dabei wird zuerst Wissenscontrolling in den Rahmen des Wissensmanagements und des Managementsystems der Unternehmung eingeordnet, um anschließend ausgehend von den Aufgaben des Wissensmanagements die Funktionen und Aufgaben des Wissenscontrolling abzuleiten. Nach einer Betrachtung der Ausgestaltung von Wissenscontrolling als Bereichscontrolling soll dann ein Ansatz zur Herleitung eines übergreifenden Wissenscontrollinginstruments in Form eines Kennzahlensystems entwickelt werden.

Es ist verdammt schwer, eine Frau zu sein. Caitlin Moran kann ein Lied davon singen. Als Teenager kämpfte sie mit unförmigen Damenbinden, rostigen Nassrasierern und schlechten Pornos, als Erwachsene scheitert sie grandios am Ideal der modernen Frau. Die ist schön und schlank, hat Kind und Karriere und ist natürlich immer komplett epiliert. Blödsinn, meint Caitlin Moran. Wir dürfen fett, faul und behaart sein, Hauptsache, wir haben Spaß, einen tragfähigen BH und die gleichen Rechte wie Männer. Alles, was ein Mann tun kann, darf eine Frau auch. Und gerne mit den Männern zusammen – denn Feminismus ohne Männer ist todlangweilig.
