Chilean Women's Reflections About Womanhood and Sexuality During Midlife in a Swedish or Chilean Context
University of Borås, School of Health Science.
2009 (English)In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 30, no 12, 1093-1110 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In order to learn about Chilean women's reflections about womanhood and sexuality during midlife, we held focus group discussions (FGDs) with middle-aged Chilean women living in Stockholm, Sweden, or in Santiago, Chile. We used thematic content analysis for the qualitative data. Emerging themes follow; societal expectations on women, perceptions about sexual relationships, and women's social stigmatization. The women had since childhood been strongly influenced by a gender-imbalanced world, which had made them socially, economically, and biologically at higher risk for exploitation during life. More focus should be directed to middle-aged women's life situation and promotion of gender equity in society.
