Half the Sky

How to Change the World

Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting team, husband and wife Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, take us on a journey through Africa and Asia to meet an extraordinary array of exceptional women struggling against terrible circumstances. More girls have been killed in the last fifty years, precisely because they are girls, than men were killed in all the wars of the twentieth century combined. More girls are killed in this routine ´gendercide´ in any one decade than people were slaughtered in all the genocides of the twentieth century.

In the nineteenth century, the central moral challenge was slavery. In the twentieth, it was totalitarianism. In the twenty-first, Kristof and WuDunn demonstrate, it will be the struggle for gender equality in the developing world. Fierce, moral, pragmatic, full of amazing stories of courage and inspiration, HALF THE SKY is essential reading for every global citizen.

Rezension
A brilliantly argued case for investing in the health and autonomy of women worldwide . . .

The authors reveal local women to be the most effective change agents Publishers'
Portrait
Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn won a Pulitzer Prize for their coverage of China as New York Times correspondents. Mr Kristof won a second Pulitzer for his op-ed columns. They live in the New York area with their three children.
