Independence: New Chance for Women’s Representation

Independence: New Chance for Women’s Representation | FMS RACE, CLASS GENDER | Scoop.it

Gender politics is an area that is often neglected by the media in terms of the independence debate, and one that remains relatively untouched by either side. But the Yes campaign has much to gain by addressing gender inequality head on: an independent Scotland could offer a new approach to the issue of female representation.

WOMEN Fighting for EQUALITY

Sirila Padi's curator insight, December 5, 2013 9:26 PM

This article appears on my page because it shows how women are actually fighting for equality. It shows  that women may actually for once be able to have a chance and a voice in the world. Its about time for the world to include women in politics. They say its a men topic, but no its not a mens topic , instead its a topic for those who can take their point and express their point but also be able to to understand the opponents point and view as well. Its not a debate on if men or women can handle it. Its a debate of who the characteristics and strengths to argue their point and listen to the opponents. Its refreshing to see that progress is being made.. slowly but surely. I think all people can benefit from viewing and reading this because it shows an optimistic side to world. It shows that maybe we actually can and will be able to stop sex trafficking and gender inequality all together over time. It relates specifically to our reading of Half The Sky because gender inequality is such a prominent topic in the book so seeing things and progress being made really brings hope for the future. Its great to see the world working together to turn opression into millions of oppurtunities for women world wide.
