Women’s coping in various spheres in society: Challenges and opportunities

About this Research Topic

Women operate in various parts of society and organizations which have become extremely diverse in terms of culture, language, gender roles, competencies, and abilities. They also experience many challenges and stressful events that may affect their mental health but, at the same time, also create opportunities both for the development of an individual and the development of society as a whole.

Gender biases lead to gatekeeping, keeping women out of certain social spheres. Women need to deal with highly challenging situations in local and global settings. It has been argued that different core attributes might be helpful in dealing with complex and diverse settings, such as curiosity, international experience, international management development, cross-cultural training, and intercultural sensitivity, as well as constructive development and psychological capital. Others have mentioned that the key to managing a multi-cultural world is a passion for diversity, intercultural empathy, and diplomacy.

This special issue will explore women's behaviors in various cultural contexts. We aim to demonstrate different ways in which women encounter, experience, and cope with stressful and challenging environments and events in various social spheres. Contributing articles will demonstrate how these experiences lead to women’s distress on one hand and growth, resilience, and leadership on the other hand.

Themes:

• Experiences of women in various spheres in societies such as (but not limited to) workplace, educational spheres, health domains, army, etc. – Challenges and opportunities.
• Women’s ways of coping and coping mechanisms
• Women’s leadership
• Women’s actions and reactions to various encounters
• Minority women and their special challenges
• Women and diversity management
• Women’s skill development
• Women’s resilience
• Women trauma and violence
• Women and health (mental and physical)

Types of manuscripts:

Original Research, Systematic Review, Review, Mini Review, Policy and Practice Reviews, Hypothesis and Theory, Perspective, Case Report, Community Case Study, Data Report, Policy Brief, Brief Research Report
