Isabella El-Hage's curator insight, March 18, 2015 5:45 PM

This article links to Unit Three through "attitudes towards gender". The UN created an advertisement using the auto-filled Google search bars after typing in the word women. The auto-filled searches were frightening with popular searches like, "women should be put in their place", "women should be controlled", "women should be disciplined", and more disturbing searches. This advertisement utilized technology to show popular attitudes towards women around the world. 

Logan Haller's curator insight, March 23, 2015 2:59 PM

This relates to Unit 3 because it has to do with cultural differences in attitudes toward gender. The United Nations has unveiled a new campaign that uses google to show worlds attitudes toward women. It shows the ideas on what women should and shouldn't do. Kareem Shuhaibar  said that the campaign shows how far they still have to go to achieve gender equality. She hopes this is a wake up call and that their message will travel far.
