Thanks to a tweet from sociologist Sarah Sobieraj, we learned of a powerful campaign to raise awareness about gender inequality from the arm of the United Nations dedicated to empowering women.

This article relates to Half the sky because it is showing what people really think about what women should or shouldn't be allowed to do. This is a valid article because it is showing what people are acctually searching on google and other search engines.

Women can do anything men can do. There are many campaigns worldwide to raise awareness about gender inequality and they have millions of supporters. The empowerment of women is the solution to the end of gender inequality. The authors of Half The Sky promote the empowerment of women to help decrease human trafficking, honor killings, genital mutilation, as well as many other things.

This article appears on my page because gender inequality is such a big topic in the world today. Not only was it popular a while ago, but it still is and the only way to stop it is by awareness. Some people don't even know how their actions itself can easily display this. Honestly, anyone would benefit from reading and viewing this because it really shows how are society thinks. Through this, hopefully we can come together and change this so that when you type "Women cannot" in a google search these wont show up. This related specifically to our reading of Half the Sky because it shows again the big topic of gender inequality. It shows the difference or the stereotype that women cant do something because they are a women. This should not be how the world operates. Women can do every single thing that men can do. Its not that they can't do it, yet instead its all about first offering them an oppurtunity to do it so that we can prove those that think this wrong!

 found this article to produce intersting results . It gives apublic view of private thinking about women verse men's oles and rights. While we often of the inequality exmaples of such things as  baby girls in China being mistreated or killed or boys being fed more in Indian. We tend to think the more western world holds women to different standards, this google seach research project from the United Nations demonstrated that there remains unequalities among the thinking of various educated and urban minds of both men but even very much so in women proving feminist movement remain important in promoting change.in this pattern of social thinking.

Women in science: 'Whoa, what are you doing here?'Ada Lovelace Day

Women in science: 'Whoa, what are you doing here?'Ada Lovelace Day | Gender inequality | Scoop.it
Laura Bates: Ada Lovelace Day has put the focus on women in science. The Everyday Sexism Project invited scientists and engineers to tweet about their experiences

-

This week saw a day of celebration for Ada Lovelace, a brilliant mathematician who wrote the world's first computer program before computers were even invented. Lovelace grew up in a world of enormous gender inequality, and her first experience of it came moments after birth with her father's reported disappointment that she was not "the glorious boy" he had hoped for. But even now, nearly 200 years later, women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (Stem) are still fighting an uphill battle against professional gender imbalance.

According to e-skills UK, women make up just 17% of the UK IT and telecoms workforce. And the number of women in the most senior research positions in Stem in the UK also stands at the paltry figure of 17%, according to a 2012 European Commission study. Even worse, according to a 2012 Wise campaign report (pdf) only 13% of Stem jobs in the UK are occupied by women.

Alex Canty's insight:

This artical relates to half the skys because Ada Lovelace's father was dissapointed that she was not a boy and that she overcame inequality. This article is not valid because it has no background about Ada Lovelace and it also has no sources of referance from where they have gotten their information. The content in this article means that there is still a imbalance when it comes to jobs between women and men.
