Pakistani Taliban target female students with acid attack - CNN.com

Pakistani Taliban target female students with acid attack - CNN.com | Feminism in education | Scoop.it

It's the latest cruel tactic in the Pakistani Taliban's battle to stop girls and women from getting an education: acid thrown in their faces to scar them for life and deter others from following in their footsteps. A doctor who treated the victims of an acid attack on a college van in the city of Parachinar in northern Pakistan last month told CNN that two girls had been left with severe burns to their faces. The Pakistani Taliban have taken responsibility for the attack in threatening pamphlets distributed around the city. They also warn local girls against going to school, Dr. Shaban Ali said.

Christine Golden's curator insight, July 4, 2013 11:42 PM

Good article. I'm still reading it. 

Mary Glynn's curator insight, October 4, 2013 12:01 AM

This article really shows how  a girl's education is her ticket to survival, success, and a better quality of life. I know I am guilty of dreading going to school some days and wishing I didn't have classes. But after reading this article, I understand how lucky I am. I have the PRIVILEGE of gaining an education that will forward my life. I know that I will be able to get a job, make an income, and support myself. Unfortunately, others cannot say the same. There are many young girls and women who dream of going to school, but are stuck at home doing domestic work. Cotton makes a powerful statement: "[A girl's] exclusion from the single opportunity that could transform her life ensures that her own future children will be born into poverty." I think this is an important and valid quote. Without education, one cannot move up in the world and has limited means. Therefore, when an uneducated young woman has children, the cycle repeats itself; they cannot escape from their lifestyle and struggles. This is why it is imperative, girls receive an education as well. Because if we do not allow every child to an education, we are causing them to be stuck in a world of poverty, suffering and dependence. Girls are just as important as boys, and have the same ability to succeed in life - we just need to give them a chance.

 

And for those of us who have the freedom to learn and receive an education, take advantage and learn as much as you can; never take your education for granted because others dream about being in yur shoes.

Women as Academic Authors, 1665–2010 | Feminism in education | Scoop.it

Women’s presence in higher education has increased, but as authors of scholarly papers—keys to career success—their publishing patterns differ from those of men. Explore nearly 1,800 fields and subfields, across four centuries, to see which areas have the most female authors and which have the fewest, in this exclusive Chronicle report. See how overall percentages differ from the important first-author position and—in two major bioscience fields—from the prestigious last-author position. See "About these data" for details.
