    An old Chinese proverb says "Women hold up half the sky." Then why do the women of Africa and Asia persistently suffer human rights abuses? Continuing their focus on humanitarian issues, journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn take us to Africa and Asia, where many women live in profoundly dire circumstances.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Cassandra Campbellā€™s performances?

    I was really excited when I saw that this book was available on audio. Unfortunately, I didn't bother to check a sample. Listening to this book is like listening to an entire book read by Siri! It's completely robotic. I'm horrified that someone would be paid for this. In fact, I was convinced that the voice wasn't human, and started listening to other samples of pieces narrated by Campbell. It's definitely her, but I'm not sure what went on with this recording. I'll be reading the hard copy of the book, I guess. I'm really disappointed.
