The implementation of policies in a male-dominated society like Ethiopia is essentially the first step for a country to move to a more gender equal society. While changing mindsets is equally fundamental to achieving gender equality, the implementation of policies pushes the population of Ethiopia to rethink the suppression of females, and can also influence the younger generation of a country who grew up in the time of changing perspectives towards gender inequality. What is important now, given the implementation of policy that is already in place, is to ensure that it is strictly followed in order to shift Ethiopia's society to one that is more gender equal.
Foo Jing Xian's comment, March 12, 2014 6:27 PM
The implementation of these policies in a patriarchal society like Ethiopia have led to significant advancement in womens' ability to self-advocate, work for fair wages and own property. This, in turn, benefits entire families and ultimately boosts national economies. It takes time to change a whole country’s mind-sets; however, these policies can act as the first step to make people change their perceptions towards gender equality.

Implementing family laws is the first step in tackling gender inequality in Ethiopia. Family laws include those that specify the minimum age for marriage. These laws have a huge impact on females as it determines their education level, and ability to get a better job. Other countries with gender inequality problems could also consider implementing new family laws that protect a girl from being powerless to make her own choices and decisions. The power for a girl to makes decisions for herself, instead of being ordered around, is already a step towards gender equality.

This will help me answer a question about Location because it shows which places are more common to have gender inequality.

Jacob Cooney's curator insight, April 28, 2014 2:28 PM

This article can help with Location, Region, and maybe place & HEI.  I find this article and map interesting because it is simplistic, but can still tell (and possibly imply) a lot about gender inequality around the world.

I chose this article because it speaks of ways that people can be discriminated in the workplace. This has something to do with the work we did because the women weren't really thought of as on the same level as men when it came to work. 

hannah's curator insight, April 28, 2014 9:43 AM
hannah's insight: Stereotypical views regarding gender can cause supervisors to engage in the illegal practice of passing a person over for promotion due to gender. While this can happen to both genders, supervisors most often pass over women for promotion due to preconceived notions about their roles and abilities. This begins with educational opportunites being denied from girls who provide academically higher than their sibling brother in countries or settings that see women in home based roles not as professional workers. ( Section 6 of Half the Sky) While laws are in place to protect this fromhappening it continues to bee senn by at least 68% of working women . Higher education nad better jobs can improve all teh community and decrease poverites , again as proven in the data of section 6 in Half ofthe Sky article , yet we must educate acceptance of this as better practice in order to turn around the repression of success for all.

How Can we Tackle Unconscious Biases?

How Can we Tackle Unconscious Biases? | Gender Inequality | Scoop.it
We all have individual biases, depending on our social environment, upbringing and culture, and this is completely natural.

Via Bryan Liu
Adam Brickle's insight:

Everyone has a Unconscious bias depending on how they grew up and social media. A famous violinist performed in a metro system on the worlds best violin, thousands of people rushed by because of their unconscious biases and missed a performance of a lifetime.  Unconscious biases often hurt the most if you pass a  world class employer for your business by your biases.

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.

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