Summer L's insight:

I chose this one because it shows how women are starting to branch out and taking over an area in media that is known as a "boys subject". This relates because this area in media is supposedly known as a boys area but women are showing that it can also be a girls topic and they can "handle" it.

BBC News | South Asia | Bride burning 'kills hundreds' | Gender Discrimination | Scoop.it
Three-hundred Pakistani women are burned to death each year because their husbands no longer want them, according to a human rights organisation.

Via Geog McCardle, Jonathan Kaus
Summer L's insight:

This article speaks of how in South Asia, men were causing bride burnings among their wives and it has killed 300 women every year. 

 

This relates to the article because the women in the article are killed or burned because the men are not pleased with them or do not want to be married to them anymore.

Victoria Jackman's curator insight, April 27, 2014 5:37 PM

I chose this based on the key phrase, "Bride  burning". 

It shows one of the many forms of violence women endure.

sydneyncollins's curator insight, May 7, 2014 3:06 PM

I chose this article because it describes the inequality in which many women are burned to death by their husbands/ husbands family and yet the men receive no punishment for their actions. This is horrible because they blame the cause of death from a stove catching on fire or blowing up when in reality they lit their wife on fire. Many of these women are burned to death and their murderer is never punished. Many families do this to get rid of any shame from their family. This is an old tradition and when the government was asked to do something about it they responded saying they already were attempting to create more equality, yet so many brides are burned and not all are even accounted for by the police.

Fritz's curator insight, May 8, 2014 1:33 PM

I chose this article because it shows how widespread and bad of a problem bride burning is in other countries, and how there is almost nothing being done about it. Without any action, this problem is not going to stop, and women will continue to be murdered. This is related to Half The Sky because in the excerpt, bride burnings are mentioned, and this article goes further to point out how much of a problem it is.

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 insight:

I curated this article because it talks about ways that society can help women to be more encouraged and want to participate in the same kinds of work that a man does. 

 

This relates to the article because in the article the women did not have a chance or ideas on how to make things better but this website creates a list for them.

Peanut PeeWee (Johnathan Kennedy)'s curator insight, April 24, 2014 9:51 AM

I curated this article because it goes in depth on the stereotypical views thought up by the average American society of gender inequality.

 

It relates to Half the Sky as women are stereo-typically viewed as all the same, with the same jobs and same roles, which then causes stereotypical views for the people living there.

Aspen Evans's curator insight, April 29, 2014 9:39 PM

I choose this article because it explained why the stereotype about why women don't work with men is wrong. This article relates to "Half the Sky" because it explains the different inequalities in the work force for women. 

sydneyncollins's curator insight, May 7, 2014 11:12 PM

I chose this article because most articles on gender inequality are negative in connotation, but this one is more about ways to promote women in the work place and how to promote more equality in ways women can improve, rather than the ways that men can do.

I chose this topic because it relates to how women are being treated unfairly in places that aren't even poor countries.

This relates to the article because there are acid attacks on, specifically, women and they never do anything to deserve it.

I chose this article because when most people hear the phrase gender inequality, they typically think of the middle east, China, or India, but this article is an example of one of the oldest countries in the world is almost regressing as acid attacks on women become more prevalent. The worst part is that these horrible people that throw acid on women are often not caught for attacking a women which is cruel and unjust. 

Lauryn Phifer's curator insight, May 8, 2014 10:56 AM

I chose this article, because It was similar to half the sky and in the article i read about acid attacks, and that also happened to women that told their story, in half the sky.This article has similarities, because the women are treated unfair and people don't believe that they have value. Thats why they abuse women, and do the things that they do, these type of things were talked about in the Half The Sky article. 

Daniel Nunez's curator insight, May 8, 2014 1:43 PM

This is so interesting to me because it shows that gender inequality can be prevalent in first world countries. The topic of gender inequality not necessarily relates to the economy of a country but the type of religious groups in the country. Gender equality should be put into phase over the next years because on the emphasis that it should be interpolated as part of education. That men and women should be treated, payed, and given the same opportunities.  This article relates to half the sky because in half the sky Saima talks about how women are always given the lower foot in society and it needs to change. She mentions many times that the education is key for gender equality to begin and for gender inequality to stop

When gender discrimination is active in the workplace it does not benefit anyone due to negative effects on the business and woman

hannah's curator insight, April 28, 2014 9:43 AM
hannah's insight: Stereotypical views regarding gender can cause supervisors to engage in the illegal practice of passing a person over for promotion due to gender. While this can happen to both genders, supervisors most often pass over women for promotion due to preconceived notions about their roles and abilities. This begins with educational opportunites being denied from girls who provide academically higher than their sibling brother in countries or settings that see women in home based roles not as professional workers. ( Section 6 of Half the Sky) While laws are in place to protect this fromhappening it continues to bee senn by at least 68% of working women . Higher education nad better jobs can improve all teh community and decrease poverites , again as proven in the data of section 6 in Half ofthe Sky article , yet we must educate acceptance of this as better practice in order to turn around the repression of success for all.

This article shows that more than 20 states inside the US are prone to gender inequality. Many laws prevent and prosecute the tragic happening but it still happens. The only way to control this is through education. This article relates to the Half the Sky because it shows that even with laws the gender inequality is still prevalent in many areas and the areas with little gender inequality are the areas that educate more on gender equality and the good effects of it

hannah's insight: Daughters of the brothel - Witness - Al Jazeera English (http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/witness/2011/06/201162081055517275.html) - I picked this article becuase of the remarkable thing this woman did for the people in the brothels.This woman was born into the brotherls and taken care of by a prostitue in the brothel which whom she called her (grandma). Naseema became the first girl in the brothel's 300-or-so-year history to receive an education. When she returned to Chaturbhuj-sthan it was not to sell her body. With the help of local banks, Naseema established small industries inside the brothel - making candles, matchsticks, bindis and incense - offering many prostitutes an alternative form of employment.And she set about persuading the sex workers to send their children to school. Now almost every child in Chaturbhuj-sthan is in full-time education. Relating this to “Half the Sky”in section 2 i talked about how the women were forced at a young age in brothels . i guess in this article the ending is better than in “Half the Sky”. The women actually get to have a chance in the real world , with education.
