Half the Sky
Half the Sky Turning Oppression to Opportunity for Women Worldwide By Kristof, Nicholas D. Book - 2009

Two activists have written a call to arms against the oppression of women in the developing world.I think this may be one of the most important books of our time. I knew about the oppression of women before I read this book, but it really showed me just how much of a problem it is all throughout the world. I really believe in the author's message that educating and empowering women is the best way to reduce poverty and violence. I really like how the authors used stories of individual women to prove their point and it is very convincing. The world cannot truly be great if half its population's talents and potential are squandered or shunned. I also like how they give ways to get involved and help. I think all women and men should read this book. — Molly R., Oxboro Library
