Each donation made will have the chance to win a copy of Half the Sky signed by Nicholas Kristof. See information below.
A book suggestion lead me to read Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. It was one of the most inspiring and powerful books I have ever read. Soon after I attended a talk given by Nicholas Kristof, another inspiring and powerful experience. The book is a must read for everyone.
I created this project as a reaction to my desire to do something to support this movement. A movement that reminds us all of the importance of women in our world. All donations will support CARE. http://www.care.org/index.asp
Come, share your passion to raise the status of women and help end global poverty. One way to start is to read "Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide." It is a new book by Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, and it will move you, just as it horrifies you.Through the stories they tell of women around the world, they help us see that the key to economic progress lies in tapping the potential of half the developing world's resources: women. It turns out the best way to fight poverty and extremism is to educate and empower women and girls! With "Half the Sky," Kristof and WuDunn are sparking a movement. Please read it, join my hand and join this new movement. www.halftheskymovement.org
