Summary: ''Women facing poverty, oppression, and violence are usually viewed as victims. Nick Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn'sHalf the Skyshows that unimaginable challenges are often met with breathtaking bravery. These stories show us the power and resilience of women who would have every reason to give up but never do. They will be an inspiration for anyone who reads this book, and a model for those fighting for justice around the world. You will not want to put this book down.'' -Angelina Jolie ...show more ''I readHalf the Skyin one sitting, staying up until 3 a.m. to do so. It is brilliant and inspirational, and I want to shout about it from the rooftops and mountains. It vividly illustrates how women have turned despair into prosperity and bravely nurtured hope to cultivate a bright future. The book ends with an especially compelling 'What you can do' to exhort us all to action.'' -Greg Mortenson, author,Three Cups of Tea ''If you have always wondered whether you can change the world, read this book.

They take you to many countries, introduce you to extraordinary women, and tell you their moving tales. Throughout, the tone is practical not preachy and the book's suggestions as to how you can make a difference are simple, sensible, and yet powerful.
