CLSU 2006-05: Reproductive and Productive Roles of CLSU Women Administrators

Twenty women administrators from the Central Luzon State University (CLSU), Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija served as data source about their reproductive and productive roles while functioning as administrators. They represent one-fourth of the total number of women employees with administrative functions in the university. Means and percentages were used for the descriptive data analysis. These were gathered using self-administered questionnaires. Results showed that the career women studied were mostly Ph. D. degree holders. They did not favor the traditional roles of father and mother as sole breadwinner and housekeeper; they believe that husband and wife should share both productive and reproductive responsibilities. Four domestic tasks such as cooking food, marketing of commodities, attending to children’s needs, and analyzing financial needs are regularly assumed by the women. The average time devoted to the family by the career women was 28 hours a week, 7 hours longer than that of their husband. This indicates that women assumed more reproductive roles and longer working hours than men. The women studied have multi-faceted productive roles such as educators, administrators, researchers, trainers, writers or editors, and extension service providers. As educators, the women managers served as professors in the undergraduate and graduate levels producing professionals like teachers, agriculturists, biologists, environmentalists, rural/development specialists, food technologists, or garment technologists. As administrators, they direct planning, implementation and evaluation of their programs and activities to ensure its effective management and operations. As researchers, they perform varied roles such as project leader, researcher, or coordinator. As trainers, they take the lead role in training proposal preparation, implementation, documentation and report preparation. As writer and editor, they have authored books, manuals, syllabi and packaged some instructional materials into video tapes and compact disk. Six opportunities and benefits such as linkages with government and non-government institutions, attendance to trainings, access to technical experts, release of funding support, and publication of books and other materials were commonly derived by the career women as they play their reproductive roles. Limited financial support from the organization was the major problem they encountered.
