BUILDING EDUCATION FOR THE FUTURE
I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.

The inequality in Mexico is really serious and really bad and gender inequality in political representation in the form of overrepresentation of men and underrepresentation of women when compared with the population exists on vitally every level of the Mexican government. Mexico has had very few female cabinet members throughout its history, and has never had a female head of state. Women held only 14.2 percent of parliamentary seats in Mexico, putting it behind most developed countries in female representation.
Work life and economics
As of 1995, women made up only 29% of mexico's economically active population. Since the 1990's the number of women in the Mexican workforce participation has decreased, the participation of women has increased. The actual percentages of employed versus unemployed women averages about 30-35%, while the percentage of employed men averages around 70%.
In addition, according to a study conducted by Margarita Valdes, 6% of those women in the workforce are employed in either the informal sector and do not have a fixed salary or in more women are employed performing unpaid yet socially important and vital jobs than are man.
Another study found that in professional and technical occupations, there are about 65 women to every 100 men. This study also found that the greatest economic gender inequality exists in business owned by women to every 100 business owned by men.

I first meet Maria Francisca Mendoza on the roof deck of a woman's organization known colloquially asCasa de la Mujer, where along with five other young women she is putting the finishing touches on a vagina made out of clay.

History of Learning Mandarin in Indonesia
The options to learn Mandarin then were limited. Among the few schools offering it was the University of Indonesia’s Chinese Studies program.
Anthropologist Johanes Herlijanto, an alumnus, says that interest in learning Mandarin began to increase in the 1990s as China’s economy grew.
Now, Mandarin is taught at a growing number of primary and secondary schools, universities and private language centers.
Mandarin In Indonesia
Most international schools in Indonesia have Mandarin Chinese as one of their language subjects in their curriculum, they usually divide the students in levels according to their knowledge in Mandarin as some students speak the language fluently and some are also new to it.
A few national schools also have Mandarin as their language subjects in their curriculum. Although, students in national schools are less likely to speak well as students in international schools according to research.
Difference between learning Mandarin in boys and girls
Boys are usually stubborn in class, they are talkative and move and walk around in class. They answer questions that the teacher ask them but they never really write down or take down notes. Girls on the other hand, are also talkative but they write down notes and are more willing to study at home than boys.
