Join us for the Opportunity Book Club and read with us! Each month, we will select a book about a country in which Opportunity works, an issue that is relevant to our clients, or a topic of interest. Read with us, join our discussions online, and broaden your perspective of the world. This March, in honor and celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8, we are reading:
Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn
A #1 National Bestseller, Half the Sky serves as a “passionate call to arms against our era’s most pervasive human rights violation: the oppression of women and girls in the developing world.”
As we celebrate women and girls on International Women’s Day this March, we are so excited to read this book that Publishers Weekly described as “Vitally important…Heartbreaking, galvanizing, and unforgettable” and Amazon says is “essential reading for every global citizen.”
Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning couple Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, Half the Sky tells the story of remarkable women overcoming unimaginable circumstances around the world. As Amazon describes, Kristof and WuDunn draw on “the breadth of their combined reporting experience and depict our world with anger, sadness, clarity, and, ultimately, hope. They show how a little help can transform the lives of women and girls abroad.”
Kristof and WuDunn reach the same conclusion we have here at Opportunity International: “The key to economic progress lies in unleashing women’s potential.”
Pick up a copy on Amazon.com, at your local library, or at your favorite local bookstore today.
