Egypt 'worst in Arab women's rights'

Egypt 'worst in Arab women's rights' | Michael Spicer Gender Discrimination | Scoop.it

Egypt is now the worst country for women's rights in the Arab world, according to a poll of gender experts.

The study found sexual harassment, high rates of female genital mutilation and a growth in conservative Islamist groups contributed to the low ranking.

 

The Comoros islands came top in the survey, which was conducted by the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

The poll surveyed more than 330 gender experts in 21 Arab League states as well as Syria. It is the foundation's third annual study focusing on women's rights since the Arab Uprisings in 2011.

Equality rights are not only for grown women, but for growing girls as well. These young girls are forced into marrying a man who is at least 5 times their age and it is only little girls. I do not see any articles of little boys getting married to old women not that I would like to see that in any way. I just think it is gross that a man cannot find someone of their own age. Have they ever heard of the saying "pick on some one your own size" and in this case your own age. It is truly sickening.

I chose this article because it was a "local" article about gender inequality.  CBS tracked the story so it seemed more common and r to understand than the others.  This relates to half the sky and the Ted Talk by talking about the statistics the gender inequality.  This study was more focused on European countries but still had a lot of great insight.  This will be great for the location part of the project.

sydneyncollins's curator insight, May 8, 2014 8:50 AM

I chose this article because it directly relates to answer the question of how do we know that least developed countries have more inequality than a more developed country. This article states that the more equal a country is, the richer a country is, the more supported the idea of equality is. When you live in an LDC, you have  to worry about surviving, since you are worrying about surviving, you are not necessarily worried too much about the equality between genders. This can help answer HEI.

Lauryn Phifer's curator insight, May 8, 2014 11:16 AM

I chose this article because, it talks about how if we had less gender inequality the economy in that area would grow. Where there is a high rate of gender inequality its located in LDC's, like most of the countries in the half the sky article, were LDC's. If their wasn't gender inequality, there might be a improvement and a better development of the country itself. 

Summer L's curator insight, May 8, 2014 11:16 AM

This article talks about how in countries that are more developed have a lot less gender inequality due their development as a country.

 

This relates because most countries that suffer from extreme gender inequality are LDC's.

Women abused as children more likely to have children with autism

Women who experienced physical, emotional, or sexual abuse as children are more likely to have a child with autism than women who were not abused.

Via britishroses
Michael Spicer's insight:

shows how gender inequality grows exponentially since women being abused have a larger chance of having children with autism, there is a lesser chance of that woman reaching equality because of reputation or because the child cannot support them, etc.
