This article would be a good resource for Place.  I chose this article because it was about an honor killing and honor killings really interested me.  This article is also located in a region with prominent gender inequality because of the religious based government.  This article related to Half the Sky by a girl being hurt in a society based off of a religious government.

I curated this article because sex trafficking doesn't just occur in Asia or in Europe, but it happens right here in America. Women are still exploited in America and many of the prostitutes were forced their first time and became used to the lifestyle much like Abbas Be in the 'Half the Sky' excerpt. A girl in this article was mislead like Abbas Be into thinking where they were going would offer them a safe opportunity. Educating these women on how to recognize these types of situations is important to prevent this from happening.  

Abigail Harrison's curator insight, April 27, 2014 1:29 PM

Sex trafficking is all over the world! Its not just in lower developed countries. It is a really big problem and lots of people are trying to find ways to prevent it. Older men tell younger girls that they have a job for them and then they take them and sell them off to be sex slaves. It is a hard life and very hard to get out of it once you are in. Half The Sky article was talking about sex trafficking and how its very dangerous and all over the world.

Aaliyah Smith's curator insight, April 25, 2014 9:46 AM

In section 2 of 'Half the Sky' it talked about how there is gender inequality in the media. Crimes that happen to women that are considered to be on a large scale (ex. 100 million women are missing) aren't published in the news. Slavery is common and the most modern day slavery is happening now in India. Girls are kidnapped and held in brothels where they are feed to be kept alive and injected with drugs to keep them sedated. I curated this article because these are common issues among us but aren't addressed to the world publicly because they involve women and women still face gender inequality in all aspects of life whether it’s visible or not.

Lauryn Phifer's curator insight, May 8, 2014 11:03 AM

in  Half the sky  it talked about how there is gender inequality in the media. Crimes happen to women that are very bad.  100 million women are missing and the media still isn't aren't publishing it in the  news. Slavery is common and  now days we have the most common which is the modern day slavery. This is happening now in India. I curated this article because these are common issues among us but aren't addressed to the world publicly. They should involve the world in things like this or we are going to continue to have missing women.  

Kaitlyn Brown's curator insight, May 8, 2014 12:37 PM

This talks about the media and how gender inequality and acts of inequality are not published . In Half the sky i believe section 2 it talks about how large scale actions are not published and arent previewed as important

I chose this article because I thought that it was ironic to the on-going problems in India. In the survey when asked when jobs are scarce men should have more right to a job, yet as a whole 95% of Indians believed that women should have equal rights. I thought that this was ironic because one of the highest ranked countries for gender inequality has the majority of its people stating that women should have equal rights, yet it has some of the worst gender discrimination in the world. This could answer place and how you know that LDC have higher rates of inequality

Victims of acid attacks are the subject of 'Saving Face.' Victims of acid attacks are the subject of 'Saving Face." “It took one second to ruin my life completely,” the scarred woman says. “My face was ruined and nobody was punished at all. That chilling remark — from a Pakistani woman who was attacked with acid — is from the film “Saving Face,” which won the Academy Award for best short documentary on Sunday night.

This article relates back to "Half the Sky" because it talks about how educating people about gender inequality could help resolve some to most of the problem.

Victoria Jackman's curator insight, April 27, 2014 10:27 PM

Much like the "Half the Sky" article, this article basically sums up the importance and difference it makes for all girls to go to school.

This article is about how women aren't allowed a right to have contraceptive but men are allowed to. This relates to gender inequality because men aren't allowing women to have a say so in how they should be protected and if they even should be protected.

The articles topic directly relates back to section 2 of the "Half the Sky' excerpt. Both talks about the sexual violence women face. Girls are kidnapped and held in brothels where they are feed to be kept alive and injected with drugs to keep them sedated. These are common issues among us but aren't addressed to the world publicly because they involve women and women still face gender inequality in all aspects of life whether it’s visible or not. I curated this article because I feel the need for women the speak up and sharing this is a great way to do it.

Couple kills daughter who talked to a boy

Couple kills daughter who talked to a boy | Gender Inequality | Scoop.it

Local police officer Tahir Ayub told AFP the father, Mohammad Zafar, had had suspicions about his daughter Anvu Sha and became enraged when he saw her with a boy outside their home on Monday.

 

"Zafar beat her up and then poured acid over her with the help of his wife. She was badly burnt but they did not take her to hospital until the next morning, and she died on Wednesday," Ayub said.

Claudia Isabella Cannon's curator insight, April 23, 2014 2:29 PM

I chose this article because the mother and father murdered their daughter for talking to a boy. They beat her and then doused her with acid. This related to half the sky because it shows that people in other countries have strict rules and if they are not followed, they are severely punished. 

Jacob Cooney's curator insight, April 24, 2014 2:04 PM

This is interesting because it shows just how strict families can be in certain parts of the world, and how severely they react to little things, like Half the Sky touched on.

Morgan Molosso's curator insight, May 5, 2014 8:50 PM

The reason I chose this article is because it was so extreme.  Just to think that for talking to one boy your family would kill you is just mind blowing.  This relates to half the sky by the family killing the daughter by pouring acid on her.  The mom also did this to the daughter so it shows how corrupt the gender inequality is in these countries.

I selected this article because I find it interesting that Uganda, an LDC in Africa is among one of the 126 countries to possibly reach Gender equality in schools by 2015.  This is good because that means there will be more girls educated, and the improvement of gender equality in other facets of the country and others around it may follow suit soon.

Jonathan Kaus's curator insight, April 27, 2014 9:53 AM

I chose this article to show how little the laws are being enforced. The Indian supreme court has ordered all states to restrict the selling of acid to minors and keep track of everyone who buys acid. This relates the HTS because the young brides in India were having acid poured on them if they did something wrong. 

Lauryn Phifer's curator insight, May 6, 2014 1:26 PM

I chose this article, because it talk about how women are basically aren't respected. In half the sky they talk about how women aren't respected and they cannot do anything without a male. In this article a girl gets her face melted for standing up to the male figure, they planned this with out her even knowing. Now they are suing the government like they should be. The laws are changing and things are getting better for women that are in countries that have high Gender Inequality.  

Summer L's curator insight, May 8, 2014 11:15 AM

This article speaks of how women in India are being subjected to acid attacks and that the laws in India are not allowing them to stop the acid burnings.

 

This relates to the article because the women in the article are subjected to acid attacks and have no way to stop it.

This is a great article about how women don't have a lot of power in the world. It shows how in movie business, males still have the upper hand. This also highlights some of the most influential women in the movie business, film makers, directors, editors or characters, they are making little impact but still rising none the less.

This article explains and shows the gender discrimination in hollywood. It tells you how women come second to men in the entertainment business when trying to receive a job in hollywood.

Even in movies women are being portrait as lesser humans. They are shown as needing men to survive and having to rely on men.
