Today my informatics professor showed us a article that reveals how google tends to show us sexist remarks about women in their search bar. For example when we search:

  • Women shouldn’t
  • Women cannot
  • Women should
  • Women need to

We all know that google tends to give us a heads up on our search to help us find what we’re looking for faster. Google is an amazing website where we can find anything effortlessly. It never crossed my mind that such an amazing website could have such horrible remarks. I know that those are popular searches, but I start thinking and it disgusts me how in the middle of the 21st century we still have so many close minded people. People that think that women are just an object, and that treats them like they’re slaves or like they aren’t the same as men. For me gender equality is something so important and all countries should start to get involved in campaigns to promote gender equality. We live on a era where women work and have control of their own lives and all women all around the world should have the right to think, speak, and act however they please.

This websites is amazing cause t show us the reality of how a big part of the population thinks, and they want to change that. They promote gender equality and the empowerment of women. When you see the article for each autocomplete of the google search bar there’s a positive message towards the equality and empowerment of women. Some of the messages are:

  • Women cannot accept the way things are
  • Women shouldn’t suffer from discrimination anymore
  • Women should have the right to make their own decisions
  • Women need to be seen as equal

I encourage you to join this amazing cause and start to change the world by giving gender equality a chance. No one should feel like they’re less or like they belong to someone, we are our own self and we don’t belong to anyone; it’s our own decision to spend the rest of our lives with someone and we do it because we feel comfortable not because we have to. We are in 2013 and its about time that we treat others like we want them to treat us, women aren’t inferior and that’s something many people still don’t get. Please let’s take a stand to gender equality and lets show all the close minded people that its time to change and its time to act like the civilized people we say we are.
