New Ad Campaign Uses Popular Search Terms to Show How the World Really Feels About Women |

New Ad Campaign Uses Popular Search Terms to Show How the World Really Feels About Women | | Gender Inequality |

"A campaign from UN Women places popular search terms about women in front of portraits.

To emphasize the extent of global gender inequality, UN Women–an arm of the U.N.  that focuses on women’s issues–has created a powerful  advertising campaign that uses data collected from Google on the most  popular search terms. As it turns out, the most popular Google queries are  indicative of entrenched sexist attitudes that still persist today."

Molly Johnson's insight:

The contents in  this article in  my opinion really show that women are treated with less resect. The article really makes you notice what people think about women who are second class and how people think women should be treated. This article relates to the Half The Sky article because it shows how people here and there think women should be treated. I think that this article is a valid source because it show actual searches of what people think of how second class women should be treated.

In their own way these are brilliant adverts - but will they have any real effect?


Update: I printed these out (A4 size, in colour) and put them on a board in the corridor outside my classroom. It has been interesting just how many comments there have been from students who have been caught by them as they passed.


It''s equally interesting how many have immediately rushed to a computer to type one of the starter phrase; and been suuitably appalled.


What is depressing, and rather distrubing , is that these students are almost inevitably female.


Which is rather missing the point.

I chose this article because it dealt with the gender inequality on the internet.  This article was a slap in the face for women showing that it is true that they are discriminated socially compared to men.   This relates to half the sky by talking about gender inequality globally with many different cultures.

Women can do anything men can do. There are many campaigns worldwide to raise awareness about gender inequality and they have millions of supporters. The empowerment of women is the solution to the end of gender inequality. The authors of Half The Sky promote the empowerment of women to help decrease human trafficking, honor killings, genital mutilation, as well as many other things.

Sirila Padi's curator insight, December 5, 2013 7:29 PM

This article appears on my page because gender inequality is such a big topic in the world today. Not only was it popular a while ago, but it still is and the only way to stop it is by awareness. Some people don't even know how their actions itself can easily display this. Honestly, anyone would benefit from reading and viewing this because it really shows how are society thinks. Through this, hopefully we can come together and change this so that when you type "Women cannot" in a google search these wont show up. This related specifically to our reading of Half the Sky because it shows again the big topic of gender inequality. It shows the difference or the stereotype that women cant do something because they are a women. This should not be how the world operates. Women can do every single thing that men can do. Its not that they can't do it, yet instead its all about first offering them an oppurtunity to do it so that we can prove those that think this wrong!

 found this article to produce intersting results . It gives apublic view of private thinking about women verse men's oles and rights. While we often of the inequality exmaples of such things as  baby girls in China being mistreated or killed or boys being fed more in Indian. We tend to think the more western world holds women to different standards, this google seach research project from the United Nations demonstrated that there remains unequalities among the thinking of various educated and urban minds of both men but even very much so in women proving feminist movement remain important in promoting this pattern of social thinking.

WOMENS RIGHTS - ARGENTINA | Gender Inequality |

Argentina is moving backwards in terms of maternal mortality, with a rate three times higher than those of its neighbours Chile and Uruguay. Maternal deaths, which are actually increasing, are often the result of unsafe abortions, in a country where the practice is illegal. These are the conclusions of social organisations that monitor the official statistics on deaths of healthy young women from pregnancy-related causes. Complications related to pregnancy and childbirth are the main cause of death among young women, and many of these deaths are the result of abortion, which is only legal in this country in specific circumstances, such as rape. According to the latest Health Ministry statistics, from 2009, the maternal mortality rate that year was 55 per 100,000 live births, higher than the 2008 figure of 44 per 100,000 live births. The ministry attributed the rise to the H1N1 flu epidemic. Under the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) adopted in 2000, one of which is to reduce maternal mortality by 75 percent by 2015, from 1990 levels, Argentina's target is 13 maternal deaths for every 100,000 live births by 2015. As part of MDG 5, on maternal health, Argentina has also made a commitment to close the gap in the mortality rate between the different provinces. But the gap keeps growing, especially between Buenos Aires and northern provinces like Jujuy or Formosa, where maternal mortality is at least twice the national average.The Foundation for Studies and Research on Women (FEIM) warned that there is also "a high level of underreporting" of maternal deaths, a large proportion of which she said are "preventable or avoidable." FEIM director Dr. Mabel Bianco told IPS that although Argentina has health and sex education programmes that are essential to addressing the problem, the public is still largely unaware of the services that are available, such as free birth control. In neighbouring countries like Chile or Uruguay, where universal access to such programmes has been guaranteed "for decades," the results are clear, she said. In Chile, the maternal mortality rate is 20 per 100,000 live births, while in Uruguay it is 15 per 100,000, she noted, citing statistics from 2005.

Alaina Rahn's comment, October 1, 2013 9:30 AM
I think the United States should start helping women of other countries fight for their rights. I also think abortion is wrong but it should be the mothers choice if she wants to or not. It it her baby the government should not be able to tell the mother that she can't get an abortion. The country should also be doing this and educating women on how to not get pregnant so there would be less abortions. Complications with pregnancy are the main cause of death among women in these countries. The women need better heath care especially when pregnant.
Iloria Phoenix's comment, October 3, 2013 10:00 AM
I agree I think that not only the U.S but the super powers around the world should start providing health care for poorer countries to prevent women's death from birthing. Also I agree that the U.S needs to educate young women better so that there is less unwanted pregnancy
