I selected this article because I find it interesting that Uganda, an LDC in Africa is among one of the 126 countries to possibly reach Gender equality in schools by 2015. This is good because that means there will be more girls educated, and the improvement of gender equality in other facets of the country and others around it may follow suit soon.
This article is interesting to me (and therefore attracted me because of this) because it shows the real situation in countries (in this case Iran) that say they are improving gender equality, but really aren't.
This article interested me because it went into some statistics and facts about micro-financing in Africa, and it also shares some possibilities if micro-financing were offered to more and more people everywhere, in a similar way to HTS.
This article, like many others, including HTS, focuses on improving girls' education around the world (in Pakistan in this article). This article also claims that this will decrease terrorism, which is a reason that I selected the article.
Most of the 50 Yemeni women accused of murder in 2012 were arrested for killing their husbands, the country’s ministry of interior has announced. The killings are deemed by many a desperate reaction to rampant gender inequality in the country.

I read this article because of its relevance to HTS. It states that men and boys need to be educated and worked with to end gender inequalities and violences, even though it goes against social norms, similarly to HTS.
I chose to read this article because it focuses on a topic also mentioned in HTS, Female Genital Mutilation (not in the excerpt we read, but I know it's discussed somewhere in the book). It also looks at various things that happen because of FGM and efforts to stop it.
The title hooked me to this article, and it did this because gender equality in governing assemblies is an important thing for overall gender inequality, and to be achieved in possibly less than 20 years is another great thing. With more women in government, making decisions and laws, the more likely womens' viewpoints will be expressed and seen.
This article can help with Location, Region, and maybe place & HEI. I find this article and map interesting because it is simplistic, but can still tell (and possibly imply) a lot about gender inequality around the world.
I chose to look at this article because of the title, I wouldn't expect Italy to be as filled with Acid Attacks as it is. It relates to HtS because it shows various cases of acid attacks, even those that seemingly happen for no reason.
Dallas Morning News Gender discrimination hasn't disappeared Dallas Morning News Gender discrimination hasn't disappeared — far from it, it has simply gone underground, where it is more subtle, harder to spot and often more dangerous than the old...
Jacob Cooney's insight:
This article drew me to it because it relates to something expressed in Half the Sky, gender discrimination has become harder to spot.
