This article, like many others, including HTS, focuses on improving girls' education around the world (in Pakistan in this article).  This article also claims that this will decrease terrorism, which is a reason that I selected the article.

Robert Slone's curator insight, September 16, 2014 6:59 AM

 If you educate the women, they will in turn educate the children and everyone benefits.

Syrian women refugees face forced early marriages and restricted mobility: UN Women report | UN Women

Syrian women refugees face forced early marriages and restricted mobility: UN Women report | UN Women | The 21st Century Moral Challenge | Scoop.it

On the occasion of World Refugee Day, UN Women today launched a new programme and released the findings of a new report on gender-based violence among Syrian refugees in Jordan. The report finds that rates of early marriage are strikingly high (one-third are married as children), that restrictions on the mobility of women and girls limit  their access to work and aid supplies, and that 83 per cent of Syrian refugees are unaware of services for survivors of violence, which are now limited.

Female Journalists Sitting On Floor In Iran An Illustration Of Gender Inequality?


Via bobbygw
Kaitlyn Brown's insight:

Gender equality is a major issue in Iran . The irony of one image captures the reality of the privileges for women . Although women have been granted the opportunity of jobs they still are not getting the equal treatment . In Half the Sky this relates to how the women were  granted a job but it took a while for them to even get close to the level of men .

This article is interesting to me (and therefore attracted me because of this) because it shows the real situation in countries (in this case Iran) that say they are improving gender equality, but really aren't.

sydneyncollins's curator insight, May 7, 2014 10:50 PM

I chose this article because several countries state that they are attempting to mandate laws and help promote gender yet it is not enough to create total equality. For example in Iran laws have been made to help promote equality for women yet, in a press conference for the new president who is a supporter of equality, women journalists are sitting on the floor while men are seated in chairs.

Daniel Nunez's curator insight, May 8, 2014 12:13 PM

This article shows that women in Iran that are politics are shown different moralities because they are only allowed to sit on the floor during meetings and discussions. The women are physically inferior to the men in the congress and is shown by the level that they are seen as. The women are in congress but they don't really have any voice because they are on the ground unable to do as much as the men

This article explains the hard fact that in industries it takes longer for women to get promoted or  receive a pay raise due to the fact that they are women. It relates to half the sky because it tells how women have less opportunities than men. The women are treated differently in their work environments simply because they are women.

 

Maddie Morris's curator insight, May 8, 2014 12:35 PM

Even in the advanced working areas there is still major gender inequality. Women are not getting paid a much. They are also not getting as high of positions because they are female.

This article is about how important women are to the economy. It says that we are part of the reason the economy works the way it does. 

Desiree Forqueran's curator insight, May 20, 2015 9:51 PM

Unsurprisingly, developing countries with strict rules for women's roles in society scored lowest in all of the indexes. Notably most countries in Africa and the Middle East. Many countries in Asia, Central and South America were low scoring as well.  The evidence has been pretty irrefutable for decades now: given the opportunity, women will lift up not only themselves but those around them as well.

Human Trafficking & Modern-day Slavery in India

Kaitlyn Brown's insight:

This talks about the media and how gender inequality and acts of inequality are not published . In Half the sky i believe section 2 it talks about how large scale actions are not published and arent previewed as important

Aaliyah Smith's curator insight, April 25, 2014 9:46 AM

In section 2 of 'Half the Sky' it talked about how there is gender inequality in the media. Crimes that happen to women that are considered to be on a large scale (ex. 100 million women are missing) aren't published in the news. Slavery is common and the most modern day slavery is happening now in India. Girls are kidnapped and held in brothels where they are feed to be kept alive and injected with drugs to keep them sedated. I curated this article because these are common issues among us but aren't addressed to the world publicly because they involve women and women still face gender inequality in all aspects of life whether it’s visible or not.

Lauryn Phifer's curator insight, May 8, 2014 11:03 AM

in  Half the sky  it talked about how there is gender inequality in the media. Crimes happen to women that are very bad.  100 million women are missing and the media still isn't aren't publishing it in the  news. Slavery is common and  now days we have the most common which is the modern day slavery. This is happening now in India. I curated this article because these are common issues among us but aren't addressed to the world publicly. They should involve the world in things like this or we are going to continue to have missing women.

K. Paige Ashworth's curator insight, April 23, 2014 2:38 PM

This article relates to Half the Sky because they both speak of the poverty rates not being able to go down without gender equality leveling out. This reminds me of what Bill Gates spoke about Saudi Arabia not being able to rise to their full potential if they don't use but half of their brain power (meaning women's intellectual ability).
