Equivalent fractions

What is an equivalent fraction?

If we look up the word equivalent in the dictionary, we would find something along the lines of, 'equal in value, force or measure'.So, as this word suggests, an equivalent fraction is a fraction that has the same value as another fraction, only the numbers are different.

Fractions from a gender point of view

Hi boys and girls,

Today we celebrate the International Women's Day, originally called International Working Women's Day. It is a day to remark women's economic, political and social achievements.

I would like to speak with you today about some data I found about the situation of women around the world, and others specific from Spain. Here you have some interesting fractions:

.1.  Women and girls do 2/3 of global labour.
2.  For every $ 100 earned by a man for his work, the woman doing the same received only 80. In an average working life, women earn half a million dollars less than men.
3.  In Spain, 6 out of 10 university students are women, although only 11 of 77 chancellors in our country are.
4.  In Spain, 38 in 100 women have stopped working for over a year for the birth of their children, while only 7 out of 100 men do so.
5.  19 out of 20 maternity requests for childcare leave are applied for by the mothers.
6.  In Spain, there are only 132 female deputies, of the 350 representatives in Parliament.
7.  In RAE (Spanish Academy of Language), there have only been 5 women out of 460 members in History.
8.  Only 10 out of the 100 honorary doctors in Spain are women.
9.  2 out of 3 of the world's illiterates are women.
10.Only 10 of the 100 Presidents and Boards of Directors of the IBEX-35 are women.
11.In the total of the governments of the EU, women represent only ¼.
12.Only 28 of every 100 workers in medium-high technology corporations are women.
 What can we do? What do you think about this?
 Let me know in your comments,
