Taylor Ferguson's curator insight, April 28, 2014 2:07 PM

I chose this article because it focused on women in a less developed region overseeing inequality and in the process benefiting not only themselves financially, but also the region's economy. This article really delineated the half the sky concept that states that if women are given more opportunity to work and make money, then everyone reaps the benefits.

EBSCOhost: Challenging gender inequality in farmers' organisations in Nicaragua

Abstract:Research into rural livelihoods shows that food security will not be achieved unless women farmers are treated as economic agents in their own right. While farmers often seek to increase their influence through collective action, this avenue is only of limited use to women, since most rural organisations are male-dominated and marginalise women's voices. This article looks at the National Federation of Cooperatives (FENACOOP), a mixed-sex rural organisation in Nicaragua, and its efforts to engage women farmers in meaningful participation. The experience shows that there are no simple recipes for successful gender mainstreaming, and captures good practices to illustrate how farmers' organisations can respond more effectively to women's specific interests and priorities.

Khanh Fleshman's curator insight, December 6, 2013 8:43 AM

This appears on my page because it shows how a country cannot develop if they are not allowing their women to contribute. If a country oppresses women, they are only inhibiting their own development. People that could benefit from reading this are people that do not believe that women can contribute to society, becuase this illustrates precise data that disproves bigotry such as that. This relates to Half the Sky because one of the main themes of the book is that countries can only progress if the women in the country are progressing as well.

Aspen Evans's curator insight, April 28, 2014 2:04 PM

I choose this article because it directly relates to "Half the Sky." It relates because it shows that empowering women can lead to better education systems for girls. When women are in political systems the government improves tremendously. 

 

This article relates to place. 

Robert Slone's curator insight, September 25, 2014 7:03 AM

Gender inequality and education are the most powerful tools a society can have. It can take time and effort but educating women will pay huge dividends.
