Iranian women working in broadcast media: motivations, challenges and achievements
Ghasemi, Asemeh (2014) Iranian women working in broadcast media: motivations, challenges and achievements. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This research is premised on the investigation of Muslim women working in the Iranian Radio and Television Organisation (IRIB). The study is structured on a number of principal questions: why these women joined IRIB and how they managed the reactions of sceptical family members; how they construct the meaning of womanhood in relation to work, family and motherhood; what challenges these women encounter in the workplace; and how they negotiate and persevere to overcome those challenges, achieve success and make changes in a male-dominated organisation.
