Sammie Bryant's curator insight, January 2, 11:58 PM

this article applies to gender equality as well as religion. the piece talks about a Nigerian woman facing a murder trial over a forced marriage. since gender equality is at its lowest in southeast Asia, the middle east, and sub-Saharan Africa, it makes sense that this event occurred in Nigeria. in these countries, women are usually treated as second class citizens- where there most important decisions are made by the male figures in their lives. this applies to our 5th unit of APHUG, the one concerning gender.

Kenneth Weene's curator insight, February 25, 9:59 AM

Herein an example of the madness that is the Christian right. Abortion is always wrong because the child has a right to life; but if the child is ill, the parents have the religious right to refuse medical care and let the kid die. Whacko!
