Let's discuss parts of Nicholas Kristof & Sheryl WuDunn's groundbreaking book about women worldwide battling gender inequality: Half the Sky.
Description from back of book: "From the first married couple to win a Pulitzer Prize for journalism, here is a passionate call to arms against the oppression of women around the globe--'the central moral challenge' of our time. Through inspiring stories of extraordinary women, Kristof and WuDunn show that the most effective way to fight global poverty is to unleash the potential of women. They also offer an uplifting do-it-yourself tool kit for those who want to help."
