Invisible to Visible.

Tonight at 10:00 pm on PBS the three- part series of A Path Appears premieres. The film is based on the book by Nicolas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. The book was wonderful, I have no doubt the documentary will be the same.

Another married duo changing the world through their advocacy is Bill and Melinda Gates. They released their annual letter last week. As a member of the Global Team of 200, I have the privilege of sharing it with you through images.

We live in an unprecedented time. What will our role be? Can we be global citizens that shift to place ourselves in proximity, so the invisible are visible?

Half the Sky Documentary Film

I thought this needed it’s own blog post!

Husband and wife author team, Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, wrote the book Half the Sky, Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. 

Their book was turned into a documentary film to be shown on the PBS series Independent Lens in a two-part series.

Tune in October 1 and 2 on your local PBS channel to watch.

The authors, film makers, and activists visit ten countries. Through the film they put a human face of the abstract ideas of trafficking, prostitution, violence, and poverty. In the midst of difficult circumstances, they profile woman who have sought innovative ways to change their situations and the situations of others.

You will be inspired by the courageous stories of the women and girls profiled. This is an important conversation to join in making a difference.

If you have not read the book Half the Sky, I highly recommend adding it to your reading list.
