1. Akiyoshi, Mito. "Women Are Women Are Women? : The Effects of Tertiary Education on Japanese Women’s Employment Status and Career Aspirations" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, TBA, New York, New York City, Aug 11, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2018-09-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p183943_index.html>

Abstract: Statistics indicate a wide gap in educational attainment between men and women in Japan, particularly in comparison with other industrialized countries.
Data supports that in Japan, women who settle on a "pink-collar" career often attain higher economic standing through marriage than those who accept a traditionally male-dominated professional job. There exists a perception that investment in human capital is not a rational choice for women given the persistent gender inequality in the labor market. But the picture of gender-imbalanced educational participation has been changing over the past few decades. The college enrollment rate for women doubled between 1992 and 2004 from 17% to 35%. What are the implications of the increase of college-educated women for labor relations? How do female workers with tertiary education differ from their colleagues with high-school diploma or less? Using a high-quality dataset collected by the Japanese government, the present study finds that women with college education differ markedly from women with lower educational attainment in their employment status and career aspirations. At the same time, the present study also finds that the effects of variables that have been associated with women's lower labor market participation rates are present for college-educated women as well.

"Laboring in Intimacy: Labor Relations and Intimacy among Black Women and White Women in Nineteenth-Century African American Women’s Narratives" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, Denver, CO, <Not Available>. 2018-09-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p429453_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: The narratives of Mattie J. Jackson, Elizabeth Keckley, Louisa Picquet, and Eliza Potter, all set in major U. S. cities, demonstrate Black women as agents of their own labor, exploiting urban spaces that afforded interactions with multiple clients, employers, and slaveowners, interactions that yielded freedom, agency, and economic sustenance. Of equal importance, these narratives document relations between Black and white women in the urban cultural landscape where Black women’s labor commands white women’s wealth, sometimes their respect but rarely their regard as equals. This presentation exposes the complex exchange and the machinations Black women performed to succeed in these environments.

"The Women’s Magazine Diet: A Content Analysis of Nutrition and Fitness Articles in Women’s and Women’s Health Magazines" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, Le Centre Sheraton, Montreal, Canada, Aug 06, 2014 Online <PDF>. 2018-09-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p744223_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: This content analysis quantifies frames, topics, and sources in fitness and nutrition articles (n = 423) published by women’s magazines (Cosmopolitan, Redbook, and Glamour) and women’s health magazines (Health, Shape, and Self) as defined by Standard Rate and Data Service. It also compares frames, topics, and sources against focuses of magazines’ mission statements (health, beauty/fashion, and lifestyle/hybrid). Chi-squares demonstrate there are statistically significant differences in content by magazines’ SRDS genre but not by mission statements.

"Working Women and Work-Family Conflicts: A Comparison of Women of Color and White Women" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Hilton San Francisco & Renaissance Parc 55 Hotel, San Francisco, CA,, Aug 14, 2004 Online <.PDF>. 2018-09-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p110120_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: This exploratory quantitative study uses stratification theory to examine the effect of micro-level and
macro-level factors on conflicts between work and family for women of color and white women. Using GSS data, the
authors explore women’s individual characteristics, human capital factors, and social structure to try to
understand the number and type of conflicts working women experience. Data analysis shows that women of color
were much more likely than white women to be in one-earner households; conversely, white women were much more
likely to be in two-earner households. Evidence of a race-segregated labor force also emerged. Regression
analysis suggests that predictive factors for number and type of conflicts women experience are different for
women of color than for white women.
