This article relates back to "Half the Sky" because it talks about how educating people about gender inequality could help resolve some to most of the problem.

Victoria Jackman's insight:

This article shows how women are treated demeaningly: not just in the economic and political aspects, but in cultural aspects, as well.

 

This is one form of gender inequality; it shows how women are inaccurately portrayed in the film/comic/social media industry just as they are in real life, because its a male-dominated area.

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.
Maddie Morris's curator insight, May 8, 9:39 AM

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

I chose this article because it relates to how women aren't treated as equal as men even in serious situation like work. Women should be able to go to work and put in just the same amount of hours as men and get the same pay but unfortunately something women don't.

Three-hundred Pakistani women are burned to death each year because their husbands no longer want them, according to a human rights organisation.

Via Geog McCardle, Bruce Williams
Victoria Jackman's insight:

I chose this based on the key phrase, "Bride  burning". 

It shows one of the many forms of violence women endure.

sydneyncollins's curator insight, May 7, 12:06 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, 8:16 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, 10:33 AM

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.

Victoria Jackman's insight:

This article talks about the powerful extremities people go through to make sure women "stay in their place", but also offers some measure of hope of a better future.

It also features the horrors of the Taliban's harsh influence through Malala's eyes.

 

We know that Malala, like many other girls in her country, wish to go to school and be educated, much like Tererai in "Half the Sky".

Daniel Nunez's curator insight, May 8, 9:09 AM

This article emphasizes on that women suffer both emotionally and physically from gender inequality. Most women are beat by their boyfriends or husbands and can do nothing to control it. This related to the Half the sky Excerpt because the women in the article told about being beaten for reasons that they could not control. Women suffer health issues because of the beatings and abuse.
