    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.

    "A Must-Read for ALL Women"

    Story
    If you could sum up Half the Sky in three words, what would they be?

    Heartbreaking. Provocative. Motivating.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    This book not only gives the listener/reader a window into the international plight of many females, but also directs one to many wonderful resources to begin to positively impact and assist those in need, even if from your computer.


    Any additional comments?

    Our Book Club read this as one of our monthly suggestions, very few of which are non-fiction, and all agreed that this had the most impact on us in a heartbreaking and motivating way realizing that everyone in America can, and should, help in a small, or big, way. We as a group now have chosen to make a donation by "passing the bucket" every month at our Book Club meeting to be a part of the change and solution through sponsoring education and Kiva micro loans for some of those in need.
