Trust and Choice of the Public – Women’s Leadership in Politics

August 4th, 2015 by Posted in Bình đẳng giới và Quyền của phụ nữ/ Gender Equality and Women Rights, Tài liệu xuất bản/Publications | No Comments »

Oxfam and CEPEW recently published the report “Trust and Choice of the Public – Women’s Leadership in Politics” which presents the outcomes of a study on public perception on women’s leadership in politics in Vietnam conducted in 2014. The study shows that a majority of the public have trust in women’s capacities in taking political leadership positions. However, their choice does not reflect their trust. What influenced their choice of selecting political leaders? Gender stereotypes and imposed expectations and criteria on leading women were identified as the main hindrances. Women are expected to fulfil their family duties and excel at work at the same time. In addition, women leaders are judged by how they look, what clothes they are wearing, which create double pressure on them. Surprisingly, gender stereotypes are highly prevalent among older and more educated groups, particularly among the civil servant groups who are considered more forward-looking. Hence, our recommendations call for changes in people’s awareness and institutional practice. Suggestions like changing the way mass media is portraying women leaders, and institutionalizing and implementing gender equality policies to enhance women’s political participation are critical to achieving changes in public perception on women’s leadership in politics in Vietnam.

Niềm tin và sự lựa chọn của công chúng – Nữ giới lãnh đạo trong hệ thống chính trị

August 4th, 2015 by Posted in Bình đẳng giới và Quyền của phụ nữ/ Gender Equality and Women Rights, Tài liệu xuất bản/Publications | No Comments »

Oxfam cùng với Trung tâm hỗ trợ giáo dục và nâng cao năng lực phụ nữ (CEPEW) vừa xuất bản báo cáo mang tên “Niềm tin và sự lựa chọn của công chúng – Nữ giới lãnh đạo trong hệ thống chính trị”, trình bày những kết quả của nghiên cứu về Quan điểm của công chúng đối với Phụ nữ tham gia chính trị tại Việt Nam được thực hiện vào năm 2014. Nghiên cứu đã cho thấy nhìn chung công chúng có niềm tin vào năng lực của phụ nữ đảm nhận vai trò lãnh đạo trong hệ thống chính trị. Tuy nhiên, quyết định lựa chọn các vị trí lãnh đạo của người dân lại không phản ánh niềm tin này của họ. Những yếu tố nào ảnh hưởng đến quyết định lựa chọn của công chúng? Định kiến giới, các tiêu chuẩn và kỳ vọng áp đặt lên phụ nữ làm lãnh đạo được xác định là những cản trở chủ yếu. Phụ nữ được kỳ vọng vừa giỏi giang trong công việc mà vẫn hoàn thành tốt các nghĩa vụ gia đình. Thêm vào đó, họ càng chịu nhiều áp lực khi bị đánh giá về cả ngoại hình, phong cách bên cạnh trình độ làm việc. Điều bất ngờ là nhóm dân chúng có học thức và lớn tuổi hơn lại có định kiến giới nặng nề hơn, thậm chí là cả nhóm công chức cán bộ được coi là có tư tưởng cấp tiến hơn cũng giữ định kiến này. Chính vì vậy, những khuyến nghị của chúng tôi kêu gọi sự thay đổi trong nhận thức của công chúng, cán bộ công chức và các đối mới trong áp dụng chính sách.  Các gợi ý như thay đổi cách truyền thông đại chúng mô tả nữ lãnh đạo, thể chế hóa và thực hiện các chính sách bình đẳng giới nhằm đảm bảo sự tham gia của phụ nữ trong hệ thống chính trị là rất cần thiết.

COALTION SUPPORT PROGRAMME PHASE II – Regional Sharing and Planning Workshop

July 28th, 2015 by Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

On July 9th and 10th, Oxfam and Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) hosted the Regional Sharing and Planning Workshop to discuss programme options and share lessons among the Coalition Support Programme (CSP) and similar multi-stakeholder initiatives in other Southeast Asian countries. The regional workshop is part of a series of evaluation and documentation activities being undertaken in 2015 to capture lessons learnt to date, summarise results from Phase I and plan for Phase II of the CSP. Workshop participants were representatives of the six Coalitions supported by the CSP, DFAT in Hanoi and from the Region, DFID in Hanoi, VCCI, national and regional CSO/coalition initiatives from Malaysia, the Philippines, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar, Oxfam in Vietnam, Thailand, Australia and Cambodia.

Key outcomes of group discussions included: (1) Coalition structure could be flexible depending on the context and the issue on which the coalition is working. A coalition should have a core group consisting of members with expertise and can be open for new member organisations to join over time; (2) Issues selected should be of public concern which coalition members have shared objective and voice in policy influencing opportunities; (3) Coalitions identity should be made known to maximize their impact rather than emphasizing the identities of individual members; and (4) Donor supports are expected to be long-term, flexible and not too prescriptive. Donors should play an intermediatory role and be part of the process.

Engaging private sector in multi-stakeholder coalitions should imply addressing issue(s) of common interest of private sector and coalition members. Different models of coalition and regional experiences were presented to contribute inputs for programme options. The outputs of the planning process for Phase II by December 2015 will include a Comparative Assessment of Lessons Learnt from Multi-stakeholder Processes (Aug-Sep), an Analysis of Potential Relationships between Country-based Coalitions and Regional Networks and Issues (Sep), Political Economy Analysis of Feasibility of New Coalition Topics (Oct), Design of CSP Phase II (Oct-Dec).

Ms. Claire Ireland

The Australian Counsellor for Development Cooperation to Vietnam, Ms. Claire Ireland highly appreciated the results and the great momentum created from Phase I and confirmed the Australian Government’s new commitment on engaging private sector in development, which she said was a “challenging area”.  Ms. Ireland reaffirmed DFAT’s continued support for the CSP and emphasised the importance of taking lessons learnt for the right programming for Phase II.
