International Women's Day: political rights around the world mapped

Via Seth Dixon
Dandavikranth Reddy's insight:

This article is about women having their political and personal rights such as freedom from oppression, abuse, and other things. Also, this article is about how people are trying to spread women's political rights throughout the world but it is just too hard. This article is on this page because it relates to how women are struggling to get their freedom while some countries have gotten it easily. This article benefits people who are motivated to help those in dire need or support, people who will continue to stand uo for these women, and people who can start a movement to end this madness once and for all. This article is related to the book Half the sky because most of the developed countries around the world have freedom for their women, but some countries are still fighting the horrors of rape, genital mutilation, prostitution, bridal and honor killings, and many more.

This is late for International Women's Day, but it is never a wrong time to analyze the spatial and temporal patterns of the expansion of women's political rights.  This interactive map is excellent for seeing these few metrics, but a more expanded dataset with maps concerning gender (in)equality in the world and the status of women is WomanStats.

The UN Millenium Goals include gender equity and gender empowerment. The  goals are set to be achieved by 2015.

Rishi Suresh's curator insight, December 5, 2013 9:04 PM

This map is interesting because it shows several rights that were historically denied women except in modern times. Based on the information on the map, most countries only gave women these rights in the 20th century, usually within the last 50 years. This is shocking because it shows just how recently women were granted rights that men have had for millenia. In fact, Saudi Arabia and the UAE still don't grant women the right to vote in the 21st century.  In the last century, we have gone to the moon, we have created weapons that can level countries, and we have planned to go to Mars, but some people still do not have the right to choose their leaders.

Watch This Indian Actress Shut Down A Reporter For Telling Her To Keep Quiet About Women's Rights

Watch This Indian Actress Shut Down A Reporter For Telling Her To Keep Quiet About Women's Rights | Half The Sky Gender Inequality | Scoop.it
"As a woman, I should lie about the state of women that's in our country?
Dandavikranth Reddy's insight:

This video is about an indian actress who spoke out in public about women's rights after a reporter supposedly said that India's women's rights are perfectly fine. The indian actress reacts and says that the rights are in the state they should be in. This video is on this page because it reflects how gender inequality has caused people to think that men have a superiority over women and they can do as they wish. Also, this video is on this page because the indian actress refers to how women's rights affect gender inequality. This video benefits people who are fighting gender inequality, women who are are victims of gender inequality, and women have the urge start a movement to increase or strengthen the number of human rights. This video is related to the book Half the sky because it explains how gender inequality has given women a really low status, and is the sole reason why they can't react or revolt in the right circumstances. Instead, the men who are superior over them have been taking control of them for ages and abusing them as well.

This article is about how girls and ypung women provide their insights on how sexism and discrimination affect their choices now and in their lives. This article is on this page because it shows how girls and women are struggling everyday to cope with the lifestyle and discrimination being shown everyday around the world. This article benefits people who are victims like the women in the article, people who are trying to change the environment for these girls, and people who will try to motivate these young women to see the brighter side of the future and life. This is related to the book Half the Sky because some girls in the book were forced into prostitution or teases on their way to places. With that, the women have been continuing to get raped everyday or drop out from school or their workplaces.

AM's curator insight, December 5, 2013 11:50 AM

This was included because the article shows the fear of poor innocent and girls who are afraid of being subject to gender discrimination and sexual abuse. Many girls who secretly have these frightful thoughts would benefit from reading this because it would calm them down becaue they are not the only one and people out there will help them. This relates to half the sky because in the book also, many girls are paranoid because of this. 

Anson Bidwelll's curator insight, December 5, 2013 5:42 PM

I included this article because it helps to show how women and girls are being discriminated against in even 4th stage countries like the UK. Anyone who thinks that in MDCs women are not being discriminated should read this article. This relates to HTS by showing that despite how far ahead of LDCs MDCs are, they are still not perfect.

This is a video of how gender inequality is still affecting the lives of women on the media and around the world. This video/article is placed on this page because this portrays how women are in unfair conditions in our world with gender inequality.

This article is about women oppression and how it is not a culture, but it is a major crime. This article is on this page becaus it defines and explains women's oppression in the article. The website also explains why rape killings, genital mutilation, and honor killings are crimes.

Aspen Evans's curator insight, April 24, 2:12 PM

I choose this article because the title seemed really interesting because it was saying how women's rights should be the same as all human rights but that isn't the case in some places. This relates to Half the Sky because it discusses how Hillary Clinton went to China and how they shut off all of the media so women wouldn't hear what she was saying about women having to stand up and speak out. 

 

This article relates to the movement of beliefs and ideas.
