"isn't so popular right now"?? I seriously doubt that it was ever popular. It's just nobody opened their mouth to voice their objections. Just cause folks don't say nothing don't mean they like what you doing to them. Taking control of MY body! Who would APPROVE of a policy, rule or law like that?
Treathyl Fox's curator insight, April 9, 2013 10:54 AM

"isn't so popular right now"?? Somehow I doubt that it was ever popular. 


"Popular"?  That term sort of indicates acceptance by the people right?  I sure didn't like it when I first heard about it.  Of course ... I'm not Chinese and don't live in China.  But if I did ... it wouldn't have been popular with me!

This video is primarily talking on the widely known topic of migration. 3 percent of the worlds population is living away from there place of birth. The push of migration from places include poverty, war, and environmental disasters. The migration pull in some places are because of  economic opportunity, and political freedom. Migration is increasing, and is thought of as a bad thing.(s.s.)

Aurora Rider's curator insight, October 7, 2014 8:59 PM

This video is great for going over the many different aspects that go along with migration. It talks about what migration is and the reasons why people migrate known as push and pull factors. It talks about the different types of migration such as asylum seakers and illegal immigration. It mentions the disadvantages and advantages of migration.

Katelyn Sesny's curator insight, October 31, 2014 12:27 PM

Aspen Evans's curator insight, May 2, 2014 9:59 AM

I choose this article because the title caught my attention. This article relates to "Half the Sky" because it directly relates to how women finally had to take over and become the breadwinners because it was the only option they had if they wanted to survive and provide for their family.
