Female Power Progress In Points

  • Women earn substantially less than men on average and are severely under-represented at the top of organisations.
  • Female politicians such as Margaret Thatcher and Mrs Clinton have taught younger women that anything is possible.
  • The best-educated women have always been more likely than other women to work, even after having children.
  • But the biggest reason why women remain frustrated is more profound: many women are forced to choose between motherhood and careers.
  • The combination of an ageing workforce and a more skill-dependent economy means that countries will have to make better use of their female populations.

Chris Plummer's curator insight, January 29, 2015 8:30 AM

Summary- This map shows the equality of genders through their economic participation,  health, and access to education. In many poorer places you can see there is a much greater gender gap than in places like scandinavia where there isn't much of a gap at all. I

 

Insight- In Unit 3 one of the main subjects was gender. This chloropleth map shows the relationship between states and their equality among genders. It is easy to tell that in most undeveloped countries there is a much larger gender gap than more developed ones.

Gareth Jukes's curator insight, May 27, 2015 10:37 AM

Gender Inequality Index-

This article explains the places and locations of gender inequality, and how most of this is densely kept in Africa, where most men are more powerful than women. It also shows how in more developed countries, their is gender equality, and with it better economy.

This article shows gender inequality index by the map and information displaying how gender inequality is located more in developing countries. And gender equality is placed in developed countries.

>>Unfortunately, the continuing belief in “categorical differences” — men are aggressive, women are caring — reinforces traditional stereotypes by treating certain behaviors as immutable. And, it turns out, this belief is based on a scientifically indefensible model of human behavior.<<

Sterlin Hirsch's curator insight, March 8, 2015 11:28 AM

I agree that these stereotypes are long overdue to be forgotten but so many people still believe in them because they are so caught up in the past. Women and men are equal and one isn't more emotional or stoic than the other, it depends on the person, not the gender.
