Women and Inequality: A Macro/Micro Exploration Utilizing Information Design
The focus of this sabbatical project (Spring 2018) is data and information design. I began researching and reading books and reports, I became more and more focused on the inequality of women both on a global and national scale (timely of course). A friend recommended, Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. I found the book stirring and compelling. I was drawn in by the stories of these women struggling for freedom and some semblance of control over their own bodies, educational and economic pursuits, and the ability to have a voice in their social and political worlds. I also found great sources of data and information from institutions such as the United Nations, World Economic Forum, U.S. Labor Department, Census Bureau and many others to support my investigations into this topic.
