Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women WorldwideHalf the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas D. Kristof
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Such a book. Parts of it were really difficult to stomach. Even though I thought the authors were very reasoned and not at all sensational in their reporting, the realities are just completely staggering and hard to fathom in their scope. I really liked how they alternated between hard facts and anecdotes. I also appreciated the measured tone of the book and the ultimately hopeful ending. It really made me think of morality in a much larger way than my middle class American conservative upbringing.
