You have a PhD in psychology so are worth taking seriously, but before we all pack up and emigrate to the Netherlands, you mentioned that your book title isn’t quite true. As of december 2020, only 57.4% of indicators needed to monitor the SDGs from a gender perspective were available. In addition, many areas – such as gender and poverty, physical and sexual harassment, women’s access to assets , and gender and the environment – lack comparable methodologies for reguar monitoring.

  • Taller than average men had more children overall, and more children that survived, while shorter men were less likely to reproduce.
  • Dutch women retained their own last name when they married.
  • Peggy Bouva and Maartje Duin traveled to Suriname together to visit a former sugar plantation once owned by Dutch nobility.
  • In a previous study we translated the MADM and MORi according to WHO-guidelines and adapted both measures to the Dutch healthcare system .
  • The Atlantic slave trade was central to the economy and development of the colony.

We ask experts to recommend the five best books in their subject and explain their selection in an interview. I think this idea, that you can be free, but not at other people’s expense, is a very Dutch sentiment. Lots of hands were needed in the labour market and women got their chance. That’s referred to, by some historians, as the first feminist revolution.

These measurement scores could optimize future maternal healthcare since it will help healthcare professionals to be more reflective about their care provision including their communication skills. For maternal health care providers, the results can help to acknowledge women’s autonomy during labour and birth, especially during situations with referrals or complications and when continuity of care is under threat. Women’s right to decision making is an essential aspect of respectful maternity care provision, and should be secured as best as possible in any circumstance in order to achieve a positive birth experience. Valid measures to assess women’s autonomy, respect and overall childbirth experience are highly relevant for research purposes as well as for clinical settings. Measured experiences can be used as input to develop and optimize maternal care. Therefore this study aims to translate the CEQ2.0 into the Dutch language and evaluate the psychometric properties of the Dutch versions of the MADM, MORi and CEQ2.0. Since this is the first study that requested women to complete the MADM and MORi for each healthcare provider that attended them in the intrapartum period, we evaluated the acceptiblity and clarity of both measures as well.

“Hopefully she can build off her success in both cross country and track and field. We also want to see if she can do something in the mile or 3K indoors.” Karwan Fatah-Black, a historian at Leiden University who specializes in the Dutch colonial era, tells Duin that talking about reparations isn’t just about the money. It’s about acknowledging that slavery has warped society. “For me, as a descendant of enslaved people, it’s about just telling the stories so we all know what the history is — and we all know how it is linked to our current society.” The women travel together to Suriname to visit the old Dutch sugar plantation, now an oil refinery.

With descriptive statistics the clarity on items on the MADM and MORi as well a general remarks were analysed. All statistical analyses were performed with SPSS Statistics 25.0 (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL). In a previous study we translated the MADM and MORi according to WHO-guidelines and adapted both measures to the Dutch healthcare system . Afterwards both measures were evaluated on their psychometric properties . The results of this study supported the feasiblity, reliability and knowngroup validity of the MADM and MORi in pregnant women . Dutch maternity care is divided into midwife-led care and obstetrician-led care. Under midwife-led care, pregnant women at low risk of complications are cared for by autonomous midwives in the community, throughout the prenatal, intrapartum and postpartum periods.

Taller than average men had more children overall, and more children that survived, while shorter men were less likely to reproduce. The smallest people were in Brabant and Limburg, who were on average 3 centimetres shorter than the tallest at the other end of the country in Groningen and Friesland. Interestingly, both men and women in the Netherlands are getting heavier and taller since 1981, according to Statistics Netherlands health survey. Dutchmen are now an average of 1.81 meters tall and women 1.67 meters. The story of a woman who navigated social and legal customs to gain freedom from slavery for herself and her family. The negative impact of English law on the status of women is apparent from studying the court cases involving women in both Fort Orange and New Amsterdam specifically during this transitional period from Dutch to English law.

She eventually finds their first names on colonial-era inventory lists, some “crossed off like objects,” she says, after they died. During a visit to Suriname, Peggy Bouva pours almond syrup from a dried gourd as part of a prayer for Philida, Johanna and Rosalina Bouva, three ancestors enslaved by the Dutch. Bouva spent two years researching her family’s history together with Dutch radio producer Maartje Duin, whose ancestor held stock in the plantation where Bouva’s relatives where enslaved. Part of the reason lies in the social organization of the Netherlands, which offers women greater control over their lives than that of France or Japan. That is because Dutch women, according to a book just released in the Netherlands, don’t get depressed.

To report overall median scores of the included population and subgroups who differed on maternal characteristics, we selected at random a MADM or MORi score if women completed two or three measures. The CEQ2.0 scores were reported by weighted mean with standard deviation , the scores were reported with two decimal places . Women, who had two or three maternal health care providers attending at birth, gave community care midwives statistical significant higher scores on the MADM and MORi compared with a clinical midwife or obstetrician . This pattern of decreased MADM and MORi scores was observed for each pregnancy and birth characteristic. The available Dutch versions of the MADM and MORi were adapted to assess experiences in the intrapartum period. The CEQ2.0 was translated by using forward-backward procedures.
