I chose this because it shows the inequality between the man and women shown in this article. The men attack the women with acid, scarring them permanently. 

This relates to Half the Sky because he had acid poured on him for breaking rules, as well as the women in Half the Sky.

Jonathan Kaus's curator insight, April 27, 2014 9:59 AM

I chose this article because it tells a story of the opposite gender. It is about gender inequality against a man because he stayed out too late one night. His wife through acid on him and he is now blind and scarred for life. This relates to HTS because he had acid poured on him for breaking rules and so did the women in HTS. 

Daishon Redden's curator insight, April 28, 2014 10:05 AM

The article can be used to answer the location question. It can help you get an idea of what part of the world has the most and brutal gender inequality.

Summer L's curator insight, May 6, 2014 2:59 PM

I curated this article because it talks about how in some countries, the men are the ones who are being attacked by acid. 

 

This relates to the excerpt because that only says that women are discriminated but it's men who are hurt as well.

Although it's true that some women suffer from more self-defeating thoughts and lower self-esteem, gender inequality can't be reduced to mental health issues.
Peanut PeeWee (Johnathan Kennedy)'s insight:

I curated this article because it goes in depth on the stereotypical views thought up by the average American society of gender inequality.

 

It relates to Half the Sky as women are stereo-typically viewed as all the same, with the same jobs and same roles, which then causes stereotypical views for the people living there.

Aspen Evans's curator insight, April 29, 2014 9:39 PM

I choose this article because it explained why the stereotype about why women don't work with men is wrong. This article relates to "Half the Sky" because it explains the different inequalities in the work force for women. 

Summer L's curator insight, May 6, 2014 3:00 PM

I curated this article because it talks about ways that society can help women to be more encouraged and want to participate in the same kinds of work that a man does. 

 

This relates to the article because in the article the women did not have a chance or ideas on how to make things better but this website creates a list for them. 

sydneyncollins's curator insight, May 7, 2014 11:12 PM

I chose this article because most articles on gender inequality are negative in connotation, but this one is more about ways to promote women in the work place and how to promote more equality in ways women can improve, rather than the ways that men can do.

I think we'll all agree that there's greater gender equality in the US today than there was a century ago when it was a much poorer place.
Peanut PeeWee (Johnathan Kennedy)'s insight:

I chose this article because it shows that the more equal gender equality becomes, the more wealthy a country becomes, as half of the population is contributing more to the development of the country. 

This relates to Half the Sky because the majority of the places shown in Half the Sky have places such as slums, which relates to the majority of the activity of gender inequality.

 

This article directly references the topic of Place, and answers one of the questions under it, as wealthy countries tend to have less gender inequality in them. The US is a wealthy country, and it tends to focus less and less on gender inequality.

sydneyncollins's curator insight, May 8, 2014 8:50 AM

I chose this article because it directly relates to answer the question of how do we know that least developed countries have more inequality than a more developed country. This article states that the more equal a country is, the richer a country is, the more supported the idea of equality is. When you live in an LDC, you have  to worry about surviving, since you are worrying about surviving, you are not necessarily worried too much about the equality between genders. This can help answer HEI.

Lauryn Phifer's curator insight, May 8, 2014 11:16 AM

I chose this article because, it talks about how if we had less gender inequality the economy in that area would grow. Where there is a high rate of gender inequality its located in LDC's, like most of the countries in the half the sky article, were LDC's. If their wasn't gender inequality, there might be a improvement and a better development of the country itself. 

Summer L's curator insight, May 8, 2014 11:16 AM

This article talks about how in countries that are more developed have a lot less gender inequality due their development as a country.

 

This relates because most countries that suffer from extreme gender inequality are LDC's.

sydneyncollins's curator insight, May 7, 2014 11:00 PM

I chose this article because when most people hear the phrase gender inequality, they typically think of the middle east, China, or India, but this article is an example of one of the oldest countries in the world is almost regressing as acid attacks on women become more prevalent. The worst part is that these horrible people that throw acid on women are often not caught for attacking a women which is cruel and unjust. 

Lauryn Phifer's curator insight, May 8, 2014 10:56 AM

I chose this article, because It was similar to half the sky and in the article i read about acid attacks, and that also happened to women that told their story, in half the sky.This article has similarities, because the women are treated unfair and people don't believe that they have value. Thats why they abuse women, and do the things that they do, these type of things were talked about in the Half The Sky article. 

Daniel Nunez's curator insight, May 8, 2014 1:43 PM

This is so interesting to me because it shows that gender inequality can be prevalent in first world countries. The topic of gender inequality not necessarily relates to the economy of a country but the type of religious groups in the country. Gender equality should be put into phase over the next years because on the emphasis that it should be interpolated as part of education. That men and women should be treated, payed, and given the same opportunities.  This article relates to half the sky because in half the sky Saima talks about how women are always given the lower foot in society and it needs to change. She mentions many times that the education is key for gender equality to begin and for gender inequality to stop

I chose this article, because it talks about how the country is trying to make gender inequality less. In the half the sky article, there were organizations that helped women gets jobs and get money to help around the house. And when that happened the men started respecting the women more because they were bringing in an income and paying for basic necessities. I like this article, because crushing gender inequality could change a lot of things.
