Law and Gender Inequality in the US

Can the legal system be used to address the continuing income gap between women and men? This is the main question guiding Danli Lan's probing look into the concept of democracy and its impact on g...
Bryce Rowell's insight:

I found this very interesting because it shows that the legal system is still sortive allowing men to be paid more than women. There is huge pay gap between women and men which is terrible if they are doing the same work as the men but get payed less. This is similar to saima because she got paid barley any money until she took out a loan to create a business which later lead her to be making more money then her husband

Gender Equality is Possible
AllAfrica.com
Malawi women continue to be exposed to gender inequality in all settings despite numerous policies that have been put in place to promote gender equality.
Bryce Rowell's insight:

I choose this article because it is talking about women in africa in a country called malawi fighting for gender equality. It is saying how laws have come in to affect for women but still is not equal. Soon they hope 50% of parliament will be women by the 2015 election their. This is very similar to saima because she fought for what she believed in and eventually did it which i feel these women will be able to do.

Bryce Rowell's insight:

 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.

This shows HEI and talks about the source of income that sex trade sadly provides to many who cannot afford anything else.

Destiney Jones's curator insight, April 28, 2014 2:24 PM

Helps answer HEI

Daniel Nunez's curator insight, May 8, 2014 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.

The lives of Jordanian women are constrained by gender-related bias, restrictive social norms, and a discriminatory legal framework (In #Jordan, participation of #women in the labor force is only 22%, versus 87% for men.
Bryce Rowell's insight:

I choose this article because it seemed very interesting. It shows that women in the country Jordan are getting certain rights but not all the rights they should be getting like economic participation. only 22% of women are participating in labor force while 87 % of men are. This is similar to saima because she didn't have a lot of rights like the women in jordan.

Gender Inequality in Morocco Continues, Despite Amendments to Family Law

Bryce Rowell's insight:

I selected this article because it seem very interesting. It is talking about how laws have been passed in morocco but still it is not being enforced as well as it should be. So the king made changes with parliament to help with womens rights. This is similar to saima because she was not given the rights she should have so she was fighting for them as these women were,.

Lauryn Phifer's curator insight, May 6, 2014 8:29 PM

I chose this article, because this article shows that Gender inequality has no limits. Like, in half the sky, gender inequality was so bad that its didn't matter, the women had to be with a male figure at all time. This is similar, because the male inherits the money and they don't even know him like that. That's not fair to them,  and its not even that the mother raised half the money, it's because they're women that he gets the money. 

sydneyncollins's curator insight, May 7, 2014 3:00 PM

I chose this article because the example of inheritance in this article is one of most likely millions of injustices that women have had to endure. This women was supposed to receive an inheritance from her father, yet when a step brother, who had never even met her father when he was alive, receives half of the inheritance because he is a male that was left out of the original inheritance. This could be used as a place example because this occurred in Iran, which they even created laws that are supposed to support and create more equality that have not worked . 

Carlee Allen's curator insight, May 17, 2015 1:24 PM

This article is about how Morocco has just recently passed a constitutional women rights act guaranteeing women's rights and gender equality. It has just also recently written its family code of law, stating divorce by mutual consent and raising its marriage law from the age of 15 to the age of 18. No changes have been currently made to inheritance though. The article mentions that Morocco will continue to try to make life within their borders as equal as it is for men as they can.

 

I think that this article is truly empowering and strengthening for women. I think that it is great that countries like Morocco are beginning to offer more women's rights in their country and I hope that more countries will continue to do this in the future.
