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.

Aniya Hall's insight:

Women are mistreated based on their gender and their knowledge. Some women are forced to have babies and some are forced not to have them. Did you know that India have a bride burning and every two hours women have acid thrown onto their faces. This is important to me because i am a female but im also a young lady. I do not agree with this unfair cruel treatment.

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.

UN agency's annual broadband report reveals gender inequalities | GigaOM Tech News

UN agency's annual broadband report reveals gender inequalities | GigaOM Tech News | "Gender Inequality" | Scoop.it

The United Nations’ International Telecommunication Union has added something new to its annual report on worldwide broadband penetration: gender inequality.

 

According to the study, about 41 percent of men (1.5 billion total) will have access to the internet by the end of 2013, compared to just 37 percent of women (1.3 billion total).

 

That gap could grow to 350 million by the end of 2016 — a sign that women are coming online at a much slower pace than men.

 

This disparity is most pronounced in developing nations, where women trail in internet usage by 16 percent.

Aniya Hall's insight:

This connects to our learning because it talks about the womens rights and how women and girls get treated differently then men. It shows us a picture of a women begging her husband to take their daughter to the hospital because the baby is becoming sicker and sicker. It shows how women have to beg and how women arent in control of their own lives.

Anson Bidwelll's curator insight, December 5, 2013 5:40 PM

I included this article because it shows how even in relatively developed countries like Israel, women still are not equal to men. Anyone who thinks that in MDCs women and men are completely equal. This relates to HTS because it shows how women are not just being discriminated against in LDCs, but also in countries in higher stages of the demographic cycle.

hannah's curator insight, April 27, 10:51 PM

New gender inequality index shows women still lag behind men in Israel. Sadly the only area in which women steadily closed gap during 2004-2011 was education. Just as Saima in section 1 of “Half the Sky” reveals the success woman can have in small business and the drive to achieve such , it is most important the change the social role of women and recognize their abilities to handle not only a higher education but a business or career with great success. While Saima was able to overcome hardships, may are still faces with excessive barriers towards improving their lives due to gender inequality. This barrier being taking down will prove an asset to all. It is important to help others see this inequality in order for support o rally in order of this movement throughout the world.
