I chose this article because it speaks of ways that people can be discriminated in the workplace. This has something to do with the work we did because the women weren't really thought of as on the same level as men when it came to work.

When gender discrimination is active in the workplace it does not benefit anyone due to negative effects on the business and woman

hannah's curator insight, April 28, 2014 9:43 AM
hannah's insight: Stereotypical views regarding gender can cause supervisors to engage in the illegal practice of passing a person over for promotion due to gender. While this can happen to both genders, supervisors most often pass over women for promotion due to preconceived notions about their roles and abilities. This begins with educational opportunites being denied from girls who provide academically higher than their sibling brother in countries or settings that see women in home based roles not as professional workers. ( Section 6 of Half the Sky) While laws are in place to protect this fromhappening it continues to bee senn by at least 68% of working women . Higher education nad better jobs can improve all teh community and decrease poverites , again as proven in the data of section 6 in Half ofthe Sky article , yet we must educate acceptance of this as better practice in order to turn around the repression of success for all.

The reason why I chose this article is because it hit on the topic that the prettier you are the more money (successful) you will become.  Women are usually associated with being pretty and which this article then proves that the prettier the women is the more money she will make.  If you think of this in terms of gender inequality then you can relate it to sex trafficking and arranged marriages.  This gave me a different view on the beauty of women and the economic benefit from it. This related to half the skys by the women being married off to men but the more money they could get for their daughters the better it would be for the family.  They weren't willing to let their daughters get married just for love; the families don't even care about that.  So the article scooped her shows the relationship of beauty (women) and money which the families in the excerpt half the sky were concerned about.

The Equality Act 2010 which came into force on 1 October, includes the provision to make pay secrecy clauses unenforceable and allows claims for direct gender pay discrimination. It also addresses the basic framework of protection against direct and indirect discrimination, harassment and victimization in services and public functions; premises; work; education; associations, and transport. As women are treated second hand in various work setting this now allows them to ask the direction question related to this behavior. It also gives legal support to improve the conditions. Just at Section 6 of Half the Sky reveal the need for women to own more political power in middle eastern countries like Saudi Arabia, this sadly fallen true within the democracy of the United States . If poor countries call benefit from food/ education and medicine then we too can benefit by using logically assets and not denying employable person the opportunities to strengthen their local job forces.

Everyone has a Unconscious bias depending on how they grew up and social media. A famous violinist performed in a metro system on the worlds best violin, thousands of people rushed by because of their unconscious biases and missed a performance of a lifetime.  Unconscious biases often hurt the most if you pass a  world class employer for your business by your biases.
