Women can do anything men can do. There are many campaigns worldwide to raise awareness about gender inequality and they have millions of supporters. The empowerment of women is the solution to the end of gender inequality. The authors of Half The Sky promote the empowerment of women to help decrease human trafficking, honor killings, genital mutilation, as well as many other things.

This article appears on my page because gender inequality is such a big topic in the world today. Not only was it popular a while ago, but it still is and the only way to stop it is by awareness. Some people don't even know how their actions itself can easily display this. Honestly, anyone would benefit from reading and viewing this because it really shows how are society thinks. Through this, hopefully we can come together and change this so that when you type "Women cannot" in a google search these wont show up. This related specifically to our reading of Half the Sky because it shows again the big topic of gender inequality. It shows the difference or the stereotype that women cant do something because they are a women. This should not be how the world operates. Women can do every single thing that men can do. Its not that they can't do it, yet instead its all about first offering them an oppurtunity to do it so that we can prove those that think this wrong!

 found this article to produce intersting results . It gives apublic view of private thinking about women verse men's oles and rights. While we often of the inequality exmaples of such things as  baby girls in China being mistreated or killed or boys being fed more in Indian. We tend to think the more western world holds women to different standards, this google seach research project from the United Nations demonstrated that there remains unequalities among the thinking of various educated and urban minds of both men but even very much so in women proving feminist movement remain important in promoting change.in this pattern of social thinking.

Devonte Walker's insight:

It relates to half the sky because they mention similiar theories about women, especially in being in authority. They both encourage women to "step up" in a sense. To challenge the theory of being dominated by men. A story in half the sky shows a woman becoming the ruler of her household and taking that power away from a man, and I believe Chakrabarti is saying the same thing in a political sense. To rise up and assume positions that take away the power from man.

My opinion is that yes, she is a motivational speaker but I think that she doesn't have a testimony to share. If I were a woman I couldn't necessarily relate to her because she appears as if she never went through the things most have gone through.

No. I say that because all Chakrabarti talks about is politics. There are other things that can make a bigger difference in gender inequality. In half the sky, a woman took her household back, and that in itself stopped the beating. You don't have to change policies, if everyone makes a change in their home it will impact greater. Almost like a butterfly effect.

In their own way these are brilliant adverts - but will they have any real effect?

 

Update: I printed these out (A4 size, in colour) and put them on a board in the corridor outside my classroom. It has been interesting just how many comments there have been from students who have been caught by them as they passed.

 

It''s equally interesting how many have immediately rushed to a computer to type one of the starter phrase; and been suuitably appalled.

 

What is depressing, and rather distrubing , is that these students are almost inevitably female.

 

Which is rather missing the point.

Morgan Molosso's curator insight, May 6, 2014 8:36 PM

I chose this article because it dealt with the gender inequality on the internet.  This article was a slap in the face for women showing that it is true that they are discriminated socially compared to men.   This relates to half the sky by talking about gender inequality globally with many different cultures.
