"Is there freedom of expression, if one's access to expression is limited? As the medium that reaches the largest audience worldwide, radio has progress to make in achieving gender equality. Women reporters & hosts get less airtime than men; and fewer women are in executive positions."

Matthew Reupke's insight:

This is an info graph that explains gender inequality in the radio that we listen to.  It shows how women reporters and journalists are getting the same respect as men do.

This article shows what some women are trying to do so that other women can be free from violence and rape in poorer countries. Like her, other women need to stand up and fend for their freedom.

This article is interesting as a majority of the world has already accepted gay marriages. The fact that transsexuals are being discriminated against means that people aren't comfortable with other people. As people, we have the right to appear as we wish, but others want us to apply to their rules. Some people, such as B. Scott, are the victims of these rules. Some people want others to see who they really are, so it hurts them when people want them to change.

Matthew Reupke's insight:

This is an interesting article that focuses on how the laws against prostitution can affect the public. Ontario has such laws, but they are thinking about removing them.  I think they should keep the law that focuses on all sex trafficking, but the other two could be revised.

Even though it is a short article, the struggle is real. From the way the world is turning, it makes some sense that people are going to extremes to make money so they can improve their lives.

This is a great representation of how women have been active in countries, such as Finland, and have greatly improved the country's economy, social life and political views. UN Women seems to be a great that holds great potential to improve gender inequality.

Matthew Reupke's insight:

This article speaks for gender inequality a little too seriously by giving women more power....with an actual power source.  This may seem a little extreme to people, but it makes sense that women with a gun would have less potential as rape victims.

Female Journalists Sitting On Floor In Iran An Illustration Of Gender Inequality?


Via bobbygw
Matthew Reupke's insight:

Even though the new Iran president promises to promote gender equality, it doesn't seem to have started yet.  By having females sit on the floor while males sit in chairs, it shows that he is still stuck with male domination.  Many of the women don't like this, so I think that the president should watch out.

Jacob Cooney's curator insight, May 7, 2014 10:01 PM

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.

sydneyncollins's curator insight, May 7, 2014 10:50 PM

I chose this article because several countries state that they are attempting to mandate laws and help promote gender yet it is not enough to create total equality. For example in Iran laws have been made to help promote equality for women yet, in a press conference for the new president who is a supporter of equality, women journalists are sitting on the floor while men are seated in chairs.

Daniel Nunez's curator insight, May 8, 2014 12:13 PM

This article shows that women in Iran that are politics are shown different moralities because they are only allowed to sit on the floor during meetings and discussions. The women are physically inferior to the men in the congress and is shown by the level that they are seen as. The women are in congress but they don't really have any voice because they are on the ground unable to do as much as the men

This is a great article about how women don't have a lot of power in the world. It shows how in movie business, males still have the upper hand. This also highlights some of the most influential women in the movie business, film makers, directors, editors or characters, they are making little impact but still rising none the less.

This article explains and shows the gender discrimination in hollywood. It tells you how women come second to men in the entertainment business when trying to receive a job in hollywood.

Even in movies women are being portrait as lesser humans. They are shown as needing men to survive and having to rely on men.
