Paper instructions:
A Western-based non-governmental organization (NGO – Non-governmental Organization) (e.g., Amnesty International, UNICEF, Doctors without Borders, Green Peace) plans to sponsor a large campaign aimed at increasing the number of women in the workforce of a traditional (gender-conservative) developing country, citing world opinion that women are often treated as “second class citizens” in this country.
Although there has been limited impetus or support for this campaign generated by the individuals of the country itself (both male and female), the NGO still plans to implement the campaign.
Analyze the potential impact of this plan from the side of the NGO and the individuals in the country, using ethnocentrism as related to the deficit and difference models and culture conflict related to gender socialization (gender roles, gender stereotypes, sex-role ideology).  Remember to include some discussion from both the side of the NGO and the individuals within the country, those for and against (remember, ethnocentrism can work both ways!).
