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.

Review:

A brilliantly argued case for investing in the health and autonomy of women worldwide . . . Far from making moral appeals, the authors posit that it is impossible for countries to climb out of poverty if only a fraction of women participate in the labour force . . . The authors reveal local women to be the most effective change agents (Publishers’)

Weekly (starred review) (‘This wonderful book combines a denunciation of horrible abuses with clear-eyed hope and some compelling practical strategies. The courageous women described here, and millions more like them, deserve nothing less’)

THE NEW YORK TIMES (‘An inspiring testament to women’s courage, and their struggle for hope and recovery’)

Khaleid Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner (‘These stories show us the power and resilience of women who would have every reason to give up but never do . . . You will not want to put this book down’)

Book Description:

A call to arms against the most pervasive human rights violation of the 21st century: the oppression of women in the developing world.
