Half the Sky Overview

"Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide" is written by award-winning journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, a married couple, who have dedicated years of time and attention to the many causes of women in developing nations in India, Africa, Pakistan and Asia. They have traveled to the remote and isolated villages where women suffer from abuse, rape, violence, mutilation, inequality and death in large part because it is tolerated and is part of the cultures in those regions. The journalists shine the line on the horrific ordeals that these women are forced to call their lives. Kristof and WuDunn have helped in small ways on a personal level and through this book and other articles and books they’ve written that the West must help rescue these women.
