Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide: Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn
This New York Times bestseller is a call to arms. As it chronicles and exposes the existence of a shocking 21st-century enslavement of women, it simultaneously shines a light on stories of inspiring women from every corner of the world who are proving that this doesn’t have to be the case.
The authors – both Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists – employ a compelling combination of truly remarkable stories and unnerving statistics to make a strong case for both the unjust reality for millions of women as well as the vast well of untapped potential that these women hold. As a stirring portrait of gender inequality that keeps its focus on being solution-oriented and positive, the stories in Half the Sky will stay with you long after the last page has been turned.Add this article to your reading list
