Half the Sky

halfthesky

Half the Sky is a book (and now documentary) by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn that explores the some of the biggest atrocities of our time (sex trafficking, gender violence, etc.).  The documentary is available on Netflix and I highly recommend that everyone watch it (makes it a great Friday night movie).  Violent crimes against women and children have always brought out a visceral reaction within me and the book and the documentary do a good job at not only creating awareness of these issues but also highlighting ways that we can help the situation.

Bottom line:  the book and documentary are a must-read and a must-see!
