Half the Sky

~ You’ll be into this if: inequality really grinds your gears and you want to know exactly how you can help ~

This book inspired me endlessly. Half the Sky introduces you to some incredibly strong women from Africa to Asia and describes their stories of suffering and survival. Through their inspiring examples we learn that the key to enabling change and economic growth is through unleashing women’s potential. Kristof and Wudunn show readers that by doing a very small amount, we all have the power to change women’s lives and in turn the world. George Clooney says “It’s impossible to stand by and do nothing after reading Half the Sky” and if George Clooney tells you to do something you bloody do it.
