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.

This viz by Ramon Martinez of Health Intelligence shows the Gender Inequality Index for countries around the world. See which countries have the highest levels of inequality and how gender inequality has changed since 1995.
Shannon McManus's insight:

This article relates to Half the Sky, because it shows which countries have the highest inequalities between the genders. 

 

When looking at the graphs, it seems to me like the countries in Africa have the highest inequalities. This may be the reason why these are some of the poorest countries. In Half the Sky it says that most of the suffering comes from not only low incomes but unwise spending on the male's part. If the males have more power, they are more likely to spend the money. 

 

I think this would be considered a vaild source because the information within the graphs are correct. Also, the information was updated recently, so it iscurrent and up to date.
