Maddie Morris's insight:

I choose this article because it discusses the raping of women and how most men do not even realize that what they are doing is rape. This article relates to half the sky because at the end a man says "if a women does not obey, then she deserves to be punished". Saima was told be her mother in law that if she was not obeying then she should be punished.

Taylor Ferguson's curator insight, April 24, 2014 2:10 PM

I chose this article because it focuses on where women are being sexually abused mainly as a result of gender inequality in the ambient area. It went on to say that there were studies done in six countries of Asia as an example of where women are being abused. This relates to "Half the Sky" because in the excerpt it mentioned many females in third world countries that are raped and abused in other ways by men much like the study in this article but in Asia.

I hope the production keep growing up. We need more chocolate and specially in Africa. 

Brendan Cooke's curator insight, August 16, 2016 11:16 PM

This artical is about the origin of where cocoa beans are harvested from and sent to around the world. It also adds the amount of cocoa beans harvested in each area.It is a quick overview of where the transportation of cocoa beans starts.


The page is an excellent site for quickly reviewing where cocoa beans are grown and transported from.


The site is relevant to my page because it informs the reader of where cocoa originates and the quantities it's farmed in.

Tennille Houghton's curator insight, August 28, 2016 3:22 AM
this is just about the production and how its changed from where it originally comes from
