Gender equality, HIV/AIDS, and marriage
The overarching goal of this book is to increase our understanding of how marriage impacts the fight against women’s inequality and HIV/AIDS, and how the HIV/AIDS and gender equality discourse is taken up by married teachers in Uganda. Teachers act as role models and spearhead the HIV/AIDS and gender equality campaigns in schools and therefore their positioning impacts how they convey the content to young people. The assumption is that the current HIV/AIDS infection trends and subsequent reports on women’s vulnerability within the marriage, has direct impact on the education of young people on these issues. This book explores the teachers’ lived experiences touching on issues of their conceptions of gender equality, domestic violence, and the applicability of HIV/AIDS and gender equality knowledge in real life situations like marriage. Scholars and educators will find this book full of rich narrative on teachers, their lives, and practice.
