    The Half the Sky Movement is cutting across platforms to ignite the change needed to put an end to the oppression of women and girls worldwide, the defining issue of our time.  Inspired by journalists Nicholad Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn's book of the same name, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide brings together video, websites, game, blogs and other educational tools to not only raise awareness of women's issues, but to also provide concrete steps to fight these problems and empower women.  Change is possible.

     Last year more girls and women were forced into trafficking than all casualties combined from all 20th century wars combined.  This is the moral challenge of this century.  When women progress we all progress.  Women are the givers of life, each and every woman deserves respect for that one fact alone.  Half the Sky is an excellent source start your research on the issues of our day.  A documentary has been made about Half the Sky and can be viewed for free on Netflix.
