Half the Sky
Turning oppression into opportunity, Half the Sky documents the incredible stories of challenge and triumph of women worldwide.
Women and girls around the globe face threats of trafficking, prostitution, violence, and discrimination every day of their lives. Based on the book by New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, Half the Sky aims to amplify the central message of the book: that women are not the problem, but the solution; and to bolster the broad and growing movement for change.
