Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women
Nicholas Kristof, is the author of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women, which outlines an agenda for the world’s women
and three major abuses: sex trafficking and forced prostitution; gender-based violence including honor killings and mass rape; and maternal mortality, which needlessly claims one woman a minute. Kristof, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and columnist for The New York Times since 2001, is widely known for bringing to light human rights abuses in Asia and Africa. Many reviewers suggest that Half the Sky stands to become a classic, igniting a grass-roots revolution.
