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.

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.

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

This month the U.S. Census Bureau has released the beta version of a very nice online mapping tool to display the 2010 data.  The mapper will create PDF versions of any map produced online (file sizes from 20-55KB) and the user can export the raw data to Excel.  While the user is more limited in how to display the data than they would using a GIS, this is a simple way to explore some of the basic census information.
