Atheists get sweaty when daring God

Atheists get sweaty when daring God | Gender Inequality | Scoop.it

When you get anxious or emotionally aroused, you sweat. Not a lot, but enough to be detected using electrodes on the finger tips.

And it turns out that if you take a bunch of atheists, and get them to dare god to do horrible things, they get sweaty.

A team from the University of Finland got 16 atheists and 13 religious people to read aloud statements like "I dare God to make someone murder my parents cruelly" and "I dare God to make me die of cancer".

Caitlin Dreher's curator insight, October 23, 2013 10:42 AM

This article discusses how girls in their country are limitied to education. Sixty six million girls do not go to school and more than 2500 girls under the age of eighteen are married every day as child brides. Ninety persent of domestic workers are girls between the ages of 12 and 17. This article relates to Half the Sky becauses they both share the same experiences and obstacles that they face every day in their country. In my opinion, I think its sad the females are limited to an education as oppose to boys just because they are girls. For a female with a limited amount of education in that country means that you are more likely to be controlled by another person. You dont have any power or control over your own actions. It also relates to Half the Sky because it talks about the dangerous fears that women and girls are exposed to such as kidnapping, rape, sex trafficking and plenty more.  The women and girls are considered " second- class citizens". I think this article is very valid because it talks about real life obstacles that occur every day in their counry. 

Sirila Padi's curator insight, December 5, 2013 8:27 PM

Thiis article appears on my page because its such an important topic that I feel like really could be solved if we worked together as individuals. We need to stop using stereotypes and everything else and really keep our mind blank. I dont think its right to be able to say "one should be expected to do this" or " you cant do this because your women/men". I think instead it should be that we are all here women or men for specific reasons. We each have qualities that can help us acheive more in the world and I dont think one should be limited to something due to their race. I think we all can benefit from reading this because it shows that gender inequality is in our hands. Its OUR faults for getting and creating all the stereo types for each race. Instead, we are all individuals who should work together and make this nation stronger. This relates specifically to Half the Sky because we see how women have to deal with certain things or our underestimated for being a women, which is wrong. Its time for us to stop and make a change.

Independence: New Chance for Women’s Representation

Independence: New Chance for Women’s Representation | Gender Inequality | Scoop.it

Gender politics is an area that is often neglected by the media in terms of the independence debate, and one that remains relatively untouched by either side. But the Yes campaign has much to gain by addressing gender inequality head on: an independent Scotland could offer a new approach to the issue of female representation.

WOMEN Fighting for EQUALITY 

Sirila Padi's curator insight, December 5, 2013 9:26 PM

This article appears on my page because it shows how women are actually fighting for equality. It shows  that women may actually for once be able to have a chance and a voice in the world. Its about time for the world to include women in politics. They say its a men topic, but no its not a mens topic , instead its a topic for those who can take their point and express their point but also be able to to understand the opponents point and view as well. Its not a debate on if men or women can handle it. Its a debate of who the characteristics and strengths to argue their point and listen to the opponents. Its refreshing to see that progress is being made.. slowly but surely. I think all people can benefit from viewing and reading this because it shows an optimistic side to world. It shows that maybe we actually can and will be able to stop sex trafficking and gender inequality all together over time. It relates specifically to our reading of Half The Sky because gender inequality is such a prominent topic in the book so seeing things and progress being made really brings hope for the future. Its great to see the world working together to turn opression into millions of oppurtunities for women world wide.

Sirila Padi's curator insight, December 5, 2013 8:37 PM

This article appears on my page becuase it shows how and what the world is coming too. It dissapoints me to see this because I dont agree with any of this and to see that these are the first four things that come up on google upsets me beyond words. This is so wrong because no women are just as good as men and I feel like at times women are trapped and are treated so cruelly. I'm not saying that men are always treated perfectly because no thats not the case because men and women are not always treated well. However, I feel like its so much heavier with the criticism with women. Being a girl myself and seeing this shows that the world has pretty much closed every oppurtunity there is because we are women. I dont like how I see that we need to stay at home, not speak in the church, or be in the kitchen, or etc. No. Women should have the right to make their own decisions and be the individual they want to be. The society should not be able to make this stereotype or decision for women. I think women and men can benefit from viewing and reading this because it shows that we have improvements that we can make and this can be where we start. It relates specifically to our reading of HTS because this is a major issue as we see how the women are not given any type of oppurtunieties to prove themself. We should start today and change this if we dont want to see this anymore.

Robyn DeAbreu's curator insight, December 5, 2013 7:00 PM

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.

Sirila Padi's curator insight, December 5, 2013 7:29 PM

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!

 

hannah's curator insight, April 27, 2014 9:21 PM

 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.

US News & World Report: 'Why We Should Care About America's Fading Economic Freedom'

US News & World Report: 'Why We Should Care About America's Fading Economic Freedom' | Gender Inequality | Scoop.it

Via US News & World Report:

 

The Fraser Institute's latest Economic Freedom of the World Annual Report is out, and the news is not good for the United States. Ranked among the five freest countries in the world from 1975 through 2002, the United States has since dropped to 18th place. The Fraser Institute bases this ranking on more than 40 variables measuring the size of government, legal system, security of property rights, access to sound money, freedom of trade, and regulation of markets. The United States, long the model of economic freedom for the rest of the world, now ranks below Hong Kong, Singapore, Canada, Chile…and 13 other nations. When it comes to economic freedom, America is very clearly moving in the wrong direction.

 

Much of America's decline is due to the growth of the government's footprint in our lives since 2000. The assault on American property rights has not helped matters, either. The war on terror put American travelers under the thumb of the TSA—an entity that combines the charm of the DMV, the might of a paramilitary force, and the impropriety of a fraternity hazing. The Supreme Court's Kelo decision ushered in a rise in eminent domain abuses. And let's not forget the bailouts of those corporations that were "too big to fail."

 

Taxpayers, on the other hand, were just the right size to fail, and that is what happened to them when the government took their money to pay off big, failing businesses.

 

Why should you care? As it turns out, economic freedom benefits just about everyone in ways that most people would never realize. Countries with more economic freedom have more gender equality and less income inequality. And this isn't because rich countries tend to be both more free and more equal. Even among the poorest countries, those with more economic freedom enjoy more equality...

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.
