Half the Sky by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn is probably one of the most important books I’ve ever read. In Half the Sky there are stories of incredible sadness that end in extraordinary hope and achievement. Kristof and WuDunn show how the dire plight and place of women in many nations can be changed with just a little help and how empowering these women can change the world.
The stories of the women in Half the Sky will definitely take your breath away both in sadness and in awe. But friends, honestly, if I could put this book in every person’s lap I totally would. Half the Sky is intensely powerful because it is so hopeful. From the book has come Half the Sky the Movement which is built on the fact that we all really really really can be a part of the solution to this huge problem.
And now PBS and their production partners have taken this movement to your TV! I am soooooo excited to watch it and so happy the Half the Sky the Movement just keeps growing.
