En studie om personer med synnedsättning ur ett genusperspektiv

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Mittuniversitetet/Institutionen för humaniora och samhällsvetenskap

Sammanfattning: The purpose of my study is to investigate the treatment of individuals with a visual impairment in their work and studies based on constructs of femininity and masculinity. The method used in this study is qualitative, and it is a study based on interviews in which 7 informants with a visual impairment who have been interviewed as it is their perceived experiences that are the focus area of the study. The results that I have obtained in my study are that people with a visual impairment are treated differently by the environment and it depends on the gender to which one belongs, and in this study I have also concluded that the environmental assessments of the ability to work and learning ability of the visually impaired vary depending on the gender. This study shows how people with a visual impairment are assessed on the basis of their visual impairment, and not on the basis of their qualifications or competences in the work they have applied for or are working with. However, as these people become marginalized in the labor market, it is difficult for them to become involved in society, based on the perspective of the visually impaired, you feel that the environment assesses one's ability to work or learning ability before you even have the opportunity to show what you are able to do. This is assessed on the basis of the ignorance, fears and misunderstandings that society likes to attach to people with a visual impairment.
