Toronto Star Gender Inequality in the Labor Market: Don't Call It a Wage Gap Huffington Post When President Obama announced the Paycheck Fairness Act on Equal Pay Day this week, we applauded his efforts to address the so-called "gender wage gap"...
Daniel Nunez's insight:

I found this article interesting because is shows the pay scale  difference in between men and women. For every dollar that men are paid women are paid 23 cents less. It relates to half the sky because it mentions how women holding the same jobs, and positions for similar companies are still paid less then the men in those same positions. The article also states that the goal for us as humans in the time is to have men and women, raising the family equally. The US Census showed that the numbers of men that are paid more than women holding the same jobs is staggering.

Human trafficking: How US states fare

Human trafficking: How US states fare | Gender Inequality | Scoop.it

A new study ranks states on laws to protect the victims of human trafficking. The Polaris Project, a US-based anti-trafficking organisation, has identified 10 types of statues they deem critical to fighting human trafficking.


Via Bri, Jonathan Kaus
Daniel Nunez's insight:

This article shows that more than 20 states inside the US are prone to gender inequality. Many laws prevent and prosecute the tragic happening but it still happens. The only way to control this is through education. This article relates to the Half the Sky because it shows that even with laws the gender inequality is still prevalent in many areas and the areas with little gender inequality are the areas that educate more on gender equality and the good effects of it

This article can be used on the last questions about regions. This article shows you what states have made attempts for making laws against human trafficking and which have not.

This article speaks of how the USA is taking steps to stop or reduce human trafficking in other countries.

Fritz's curator insight, May 8, 2014 1:02 PM

I chose this article because many people know that gender inequality is a huge problem in the global community, but many also do not realize that its a pressing issue here in the United States. This relates to Half The Sky because it talks about what different states do to fight this problem, which is talked about in the excerpt.

These girls are excited to advance to secondary school but their parents do not want them to because they will be FORCED into marriage and have to leave their life behind. A young girl should not have to be worried about marriage she should be worrying about what classes she needs to take for her career. And often times if the girls are allowed to attend, they are sexually harassed at school. We have to make a change in traditions and making sure that the kids are safe and protected from creeps and provided an education that will guarantee them a job that respects them as women.

Daniel Nunez's insight:

This article explains the hard fact that in industries it takes longer for women to get promoted or  receive a pay raise due to the fact that they are women. It relates to half the sky because it tells how women have less opportunities than men. The women are treated differently in their work environments simply because they are women.

Even in the advanced working areas there is still major gender inequality. Women are not getting paid a much. They are also not getting as high of positions because they are female.

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.

A vicious spate of acid attacks against women has shocked the European country. Barbie Latza Nadeau reports.

Via Jocelyn Stoller, Jonathan Kaus, Peanut PeeWee (Johnathan Kennedy)
Daniel Nunez's insight:

This is so interesting to me because it shows that gender inequality can be prevalent in first world countries. The topic of gender inequality not necessarily relates to the economy of a country but the type of religious groups in the country. Gender equality should be put into phase over the next years because on the emphasis that it should be interpolated as part of education. That men and women should be treated, payed, and given the same opportunities.  This article relates to half the sky because in half the sky Saima talks about how women are always given the lower foot in society and it needs to change. She mentions many times that the education is key for gender equality to begin and for gender inequality to stop

Attacks on women are on the rise. Acid attacks are awful and should not be on the rise they should instead be going away. This reminds me of the bride burnings in India which is another form of abuse.

sydneyncollins's curator insight, May 7, 2014 11:00 PM

I chose this article because when most people hear the phrase gender inequality, they typically think of the middle east, China, or India, but this article is an example of one of the oldest countries in the world is almost regressing as acid attacks on women become more prevalent. The worst part is that these horrible people that throw acid on women are often not caught for attacking a women which is cruel and unjust. 

Lauryn Phifer's curator insight, May 8, 2014 10:56 AM

I chose this article, because It was similar to half the sky and in the article i read about acid attacks, and that also happened to women that told their story, in half the sky.This article has similarities, because the women are treated unfair and people don't believe that they have value. Thats why they abuse women, and do the things that they do, these type of things were talked about in the Half The Sky article.

Daniel Nunez's insight:

This article shows that old traditions have an effect on gender inequality. Women are paid less than men because most of the employers are men and they believe in the olden traditions where the women is supposed to do house work and the man is supposed to do the bread winning. The women still are allowed to work but they are held back by old traditions. This relates to half the sky because it shows that traditions hold back women and diminish their opprotunities

This article is on my page because it shows how women are being discriminated against even in MDCs. Anyone who thinks women are completely equal to men in MDCs should read this. This relates to HTS because it helps show that despite all the efforts made in MDCs to have gender equality, we are still imperfect.

Maddie Morris's curator insight, May 8, 2014 12:45 PM

The Pay Gap Is Because of Gender, Not Jobs

The Pay Gap Is Because of Gender, Not Jobs | Gender Inequality | Scoop.it

A majority of the pay differential between men and women comes from differences within occupations, not between them, according to a Harvard labor economist.

Daniel Nunez's insight:

This article is interesting because it shows the percent of women that are paid differently in different careers. They hold the same positions and are still paid differently. So, this shows that the only factor in the women being paid differently is the gender. Many women are discriminated like this all over the world.

A woman goes through the same training and paid for the same education as the men did for their job. Why are the women getting payed less for the same amount of work a man does. The word woman or female should not have the word man or male in it because the men do not work as hard, but still get more respect than women. They do not correlate with each other and it offends me that they are associated with each other when they are not the same thing.

Lauryn Phifer's curator insight, May 8, 2014 11:20 AM

When you thrive to do things you except everything from all the hard work that you do. But women aren't getting paid the same as men even though they went through the exact same training, and school. Gender inequality. I chose this article, because it's similar to the half the sky article, women don't get enough respect, or sometimes they don't get paid at all, or they get paid a lot less then what men paid, that not fair for them, just because your a women. You can chose what you are when your born nor can you chose what your born into.

Female Journalists Sitting On Floor In Iran An Illustration Of Gender Inequality?

Daniel Nunez's insight:

This article shows that women in Iran that are politics are shown different moralities because they are only allowed to sit on the floor during meetings and discussions. The women are physically inferior to the men in the congress and is shown by the level that they are seen as. The women are in congress but they don't really have any voice because they are on the ground unable to do as much as the men

The reason I chose this article was because of the interesting image in the front of the article.  But when I realized that it was very educational and spoke a lot about gender inequality i realized that was another reason why I should scoop it.  This relates to half the sky by the women tried to take action against gender inequality.  There was one girl in half the skys that got an actual job.

Jacob Cooney's curator insight, May 7, 2014 10:01 PM

This article is interesting to me (and therefore attracted me because of this) because it shows the real situation in countries (in this case Iran) that say they are improving gender equality, but really aren't.

sydneyncollins's curator insight, May 7, 2014 10:50 PM

I chose this article because several countries state that they are attempting to mandate laws and help promote gender yet it is not enough to create total equality. For example in Iran laws have been made to help promote equality for women yet, in a press conference for the new president who is a supporter of equality, women journalists are sitting on the floor while men are seated in chairs.

Daniel Nunez's insight:

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.

 I choose this article because of natural disasters within these agriculturally dependent countries, people are forced out of there homes and lives.
