Half the Sky

Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Woman Worldwide

By: Nicolas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn

Nicolas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn are a married couple and winners of the Pulitzer Prize in Journalism.  In Half the Sky they tell the stories of woman and children who experience oppression in the developing World.

Listen to their stories.

Much of the oppression these woman and children face is delivered from the hands of their own families and communities due to deeply ingrained social structures.  The content is difficult; 21st century slaves, prostitution, rape, maternal health, education as a key to overcoming poverty and war, and finally microcredit.

Many of the brave woman and children who break free return to help others from the pain they have known. Their courage will inspire and change you.
