    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.

    Nancy says: "This unabridged book is abridged"
    "Truly life-changing! Eye-opening & inspiring!"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Half the Sky to be better than the print version?

    The print version is great as well but there was something about listening to the audiobook that really brought the material to life and in some ways, allowed me to have a more deeper emotional connection to the people in the book. It also allowed me to access the book more since I have such a busy life.


    What other book might you compare Half the Sky to and why?

    I'm not sure what can compare but one of the next books on my list is "Leaving Microsoft to Change the World" by John Wood. I've heard that was quite inspring as well.
