What We're Reading | August 31, 2012

As the dust of the Arab Spring revolutions begins to settle, women — who stood shoulder to shoulder with men in defying tyranny — are finding themselves marginalized and excluded from decision-making. Despite the new freedoms championed by the revolutionaries, women are still regarded as subordinate to men in most places. The Guardian’s list of 15 innovations that are transforming Africa serves as creative inspiration and a reminder that solving old problems takes new ideas. News around the globe this week reported on both rising and faltering GDPs of various nations. The Philippines’ economy continues an impressive 2012 as second quarter GDP grew by 5.9 percent, significantly higher than the same period in 2011. “We are optimistic that the resiliency of our economy, as reflected by the strong real GDP performance in the two quarters of 2012, will not dissipate in the succeeding quarters despite the uncertainties,” Socio-Economic Planning Secretary Arsenio Balisacan said. Meanwhile, Poland’s GDP grew a mere 2.4 percent annually in the second quarter – indicating a continued slowdown for EU’s largest emerging economy.
