Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This report highlights, what Turkish and Pakistani immigrants in Denmark's stances are on gender roles, and whether or not some families in these minority groups consciously choose the women to become stay-at-home wives as a consequence of their traditional gender roles. We will also come with a suggestion as to how the Danish population majority regards a presence in the labour market as a part of an individual sense of identity and belonging in society. Afterwards we will analyse, if a possible disconnection to the labour market by the Turkish and Pakistani minority groups is a result of the perspective on gender roles, and if the individuals in these groups therefore have a hard time understanding the Danish work values. Similarly we will evaluate whether or not the Danish population majority is able to obtain benevolence and tolerance of the Turkish and Pakistani cultures, if all the groups most often seek out communities that share their culture and therefore only obtain minimum interaction with other groups. In the analysis we evaluate that the immigrant groups often have a traditional division of labour regarding responsibility and work in the household, but only in certain cases this shows as a lacking of presence in the labour market for the women. On the other hand we see a tendency for the second generation of the Turkish and Pakistani groups to be getting more similar to the ethnic Danes' focus on equality between the genders on many levels, also regarding the presence in the labour market.
