This is my favorite articles, as it speaks of the well-known repetitive phrase  "women can do anything men can". While this phrase is a little annoyingly mundane,  this article has a refreshing way to claim the truth through a woman by the name of Nadia Popova's life.

According to new research, the most effective leaders have higher levels of testosterone and lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol -- and the results are gender-neutral.

Via Wise Leader™
K. Paige Ashworth's insight:

Even though everyone seems to agree on the want for a woman president, just as there was a want for a black president, there still seems to be a following in the leaders with higher levels of testosterone, and most of the time this desire is achieved through natural male abilities, but women can also achieve this with a few tips and actions.

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, 12:39 PM

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

Bryce Rowell's curator insight, May 7, 5:34 PM

 I choose this article because of natural disasters within these agriculturally dependent countries, people are forced out of there homes and lives. As a result of the environment women sometimes have to be apart of the notorious sex trades and the business of prostitution, where many forms of violence and wrongdoing occur. 

Daniel Nunez's curator insight, May 8, 12:52 PM

In many countries the amount of women that suffer during natural disasters is huge. They suffer because since they rely on farming and the disaster destroys the crop they are forced into prostitution and slavery related jobs to keep the family surviving. If they don't then they are beaten for not producing good offspring to take care of the family. And they are sometimes killed because the husbands think that  they are useless and need to find new wives.

This article helps with movement.

 

I selected this article because it gives an inside of where the sex trade had started or how it started. It related because it talks of how women are sold off from their families (or are simply taken away from them) and they are forced into sex trafficking. 

Jacob Cooney's curator insight, May 7, 10:34 PM

I like this article because it goes onto a whole new level than other articles because Thompson actually experienced what a lot of unfortunate girls and women have to go through.

Ms. Magazine | If the Clothes Fit: A Feminist Takes on Fashion | Fall 2011 | Gender Bias | Scoop.it
My passion for fashion can sometimes seem a shameful secret life,” wrote Princeton University English professor Elaine Showalter in 1997.And indeed, after these words appeared in Vogue, more shame was heaped on her. Surely she must have “better things to do,” said one colleague.

 

Fashion, like so many other things associated primarily with women, may be dismissed as trivial, but it shapes how we’re read by others, especially on the levels of gender, class and race. In turn, how we’re read determines how we are treated, especially in the workforce—whether we are hired, promoted and respected, and how well we are paid. That most ordinary and intimate of acts, getting dressed, has very real political and economic consequences.

K. Paige Ashworth's insight:

This article shows the ways that any act of correcting a student can be seen as bias. Seeing as boys generally act differently than girls, if you correct the students the same way, one gender will get the downside of that, but if you consider them treating the two genders differently, someone will say that a specific gender is being favorited.

This article relates to Half the Sky because they both speak of the poverty rates not being able to go down without gender equality leveling out. This reminds me of what Bill Gates spoke about Saudi Arabia not being able to rise to their full potential if they don't use but half of their brain power (meaning women's intellectual ability).
