Are Women Perpetuating Gender Inequality?

Are Women Perpetuating Gender Inequality and Reinforcing Their Own Stereotypes? The Imposter Syndrome— the feeling of being fraudulent. Entrepreneurs have to wear many hats and consequently many masks, the most common one being, “I am 100% confident in what I am doing”.  The Imposter Syndrome is part of the human condition, because, men and women More Info

sydneyncollins's curator insight, May 7, 2014 3:06 PM

I chose this article because it describes the inequality in which many women are burned to death by their husbands/ husbands family and yet the men receive no punishment for their actions. This is horrible because they blame the cause of death from a stove catching on fire or blowing up when in reality they lit their wife on fire. Many of these women are burned to death and their murderer is never punished. Many families do this to get rid of any shame from their family. This is an old tradition and when the government was asked to do something about it they responded saying they already were attempting to create more equality, yet so many brides are burned and not all are even accounted for by the police.

Summer L's curator insight, May 8, 2014 11:16 AM

This article speaks of how in South Asia, men were causing bride burnings among their wives and it has killed 300 women every year. 

 

This relates to the article because the women in the article are killed or burned because the men are not pleased with them or do not want to be married to them anymore.

Fritz's curator insight, May 8, 2014 1:33 PM

I chose this article because it shows how widespread and bad of a problem bride burning is in other countries, and how there is almost nothing being done about it. Without any action, this problem is not going to stop, and women will continue to be murdered. This is related to Half The Sky because in the excerpt, bride burnings are mentioned, and this article goes further to point out how much of a problem it is.

Shannon McManus's curator insight, October 23, 2013 10:37 AM

This article relates to Half the Sky, because it shows which countries have the highest inequalities between the genders. 

 

When looking at the graphs, it seems to me like the countries in Africa have the highest inequalities. This may be the reason why these are some of the poorest countries. In Half the Sky it says that most of the suffering comes from not only low incomes but unwise spending on the male's part. If the males have more power, they are more likely to spend the money. 

 

I think this would be considered a vaild source because the information within the graphs are correct. Also, the information was updated recently, so it iscurrent and up to date.
