  • The announcement of the disputed 2007 presidential election results in Kenya on December 27th, 2007 led to what could be described as the worst political crisis in Kenyan post-colonial history. This massacre claimed over 1000 lives of children, men, and women, and left about 600,000 Kenyans internally displaced.

  • The "Middle Eastern Muslim family" has long been described as a patriarchal unit, and it has been noted that Muslim family laws have served to reinforce patriarchal gender relations and women's subordinate position within the family. The persistence of patriarchy is a matter of debate, and some feminist theorists argue that industrialized societies are also patriarchal. Walby (1990,1996) distinguishes between the "private patriarchy" of the pre-modern family and social order and the "public patriarchy" of the state and labor market in industrial societies. In his work on South Korea, lie (1996) has distinguished between agrarian patriarchy and patriarchal capitalism. In this article I use the term patriarchy in its strict rather than liberal sense-that is, in terms of [John Caldwell]'s ...

This review and analysis will look cross culturally at both traditional arrangements and new expectations and strategies. The cases as seen in several contemporary societies, of grandparents caring for grandchildren will be highlighted in terms of res...
