Discrimination abounds
The Economist (blog)
GENDER-BASED financial exclusion is deeply ingrained across the world. According to a recent paper* by the World Bank more than 1.3 billion women are "largely outside the formal financial system".

Maddie Morris's curator insight, May 7, 2014 7:19 PM

This article is discussing how as inequality is growing education is going to dry up. Without women a full establishment of education can not be achieved because have of the population is not in action. This relates to the article because they both discus how women play a major part in education.

Lauryn Phifer's curator insight, May 8, 2014 11:08 AM

I curated this article, because it talks about Education. In the half the sky article, education is one of the big issues that women have associated with gender inequality. Women don't get educated, because they are simply women, this article is important because it tells people that Education is important for everybody and not men.

This was written in May 2012, but things are not looking up for women and children in today's economy. The tragedy today is that people who could do something about this are too busy debating theory to deal with this unthinkable reality. jkl

Can Husbands Handle Being Outearned By Their Wives?

Can Husbands Handle Being Outearned By Their Wives? | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

While this study is interesting, what I am noticing is that it seems to have a life of its own as it gets picked up by news outlets. For many, it may be misread as  “women are now out-earning men,” and the media will go through another period of collectively wondering if we need feminism.  Then, the media wants to focus on what they perceive to be the personal dynamics of the story. You can hear the commentators–men and women alike–dying to ask the question, and they usually do: how will it affect men if they are out-earned by their wives? What will it do to the marriage?  Can men handle it?  Will their feelings be hurt, their egos bruised?  What should women do?

On Equal Pay Day, Remember Women of Color

On Equal Pay Day, Remember Women of Color | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

April 9 is Equal Pay Day--a reminder that women workers still make less than their male counterparts. Around this time of year, my university's Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance usually holds a Pay Equity Bake Sale to highlight the wage disparities between men and women. The price of each baked good varies by customer to reflect the wage gap. In the United States, women make about $0.77 for every $1 earned by male colleagues; therefore, female students pay $0.77 for a brownie while male students pay $1. Some people love this event, others hate it. What I have always liked about the bake sale is that it not only reflects wage differences between sexes, but races as well.
