Aspen Evans's insight:

I choose this article because it was related to how women were segregated from men. It directly relates to the article Half the Sky because it was referring to how a man went to a debate and the women and men were separated and he told them they had to mix up. In Half the Sky Bill Gates also had this issue of women and men being segregated and he told them if they wanted to be in the top 10 they would have to work with women.

While the SLD styling language used in GeoServer is very powerful, it's no secret that it's somewhat verbose to author. One reason for this is the need to define multiple rules to specify different styles based on attribute values.

I chose this article, because this article shows that Gender inequality has no limits. Like, in half the sky, gender inequality was so bad that its didn't matter, the women had to be with a male figure at all time. This is similar, because the male inherits the money and they don't even know him like that. That's not fair to them,  and its not even that the mother raised half the money, it's because they're women that he gets the money. 

sydneyncollins's curator insight, May 7, 2014 3:00 PM

I chose this article because the example of inheritance in this article is one of most likely millions of injustices that women have had to endure. This women was supposed to receive an inheritance from her father, yet when a step brother, who had never even met her father when he was alive, receives half of the inheritance because he is a male that was left out of the original inheritance. This could be used as a place example because this occurred in Iran, which they even created laws that are supposed to support and create more equality that have not worked . 

Carlee Allen's curator insight, May 17, 2015 1:24 PM

This article is about how Morocco has just recently passed a constitutional women rights act guaranteeing women's rights and gender equality. It has just also recently written its family code of law, stating divorce by mutual consent and raising its marriage law from the age of 15 to the age of 18. No changes have been currently made to inheritance though. The article mentions that Morocco will continue to try to make life within their borders as equal as it is for men as they can.

 

I think that this article is truly empowering and strengthening for women. I think that it is great that countries like Morocco are beginning to offer more women's rights in their country and I hope that more countries will continue to do this in the future.

I choose this article because it discussed the business side of how gender inequality effects the government. This article relates to "Half the Sky" because it shows how women are becoming a bigger part of the work force but they aren't treated the same as men. They discuss how the world has to fully activate women because they have the same brain power as a man.
