These stories are electrifying and have the effect of breaking down this enormous problem into segments the reader can focus on. Suddenly, these horrendous problems begin to seem solvable.
Again, this book is not a sermon about victims. Half the Sky is a call to arms, a call for help, a call for contributions, but also a call for volunteers. It asks us to open our eyes to this enormous humanitarian issue. It does so with exquisitely crafted prose and sensationally interesting material.
I really do think this is one of the most important books I have ever reviewed. This wonderful book combines a denunciation of horrible abuses with clear-eyed hope and some compelling practical strategies.
Half the Sky
The courageous women described here, and millions more like them, deserve nothing less. 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. Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn have written a brilliant call to arms that describes one of the transcendent injustices in the world today—the brutal treatment of women.
They take you to many countries, introduce you to extraordinary women, and tell you their moving tales.
Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide
The authors vividly describe a terrible reality about the world we live in but they also provide light and hope that we can, in fact, change it.
It does what we need most, it bears witness to the sheer cruelty that mankind can do to mankind. In addition to describing the injustices, Kristof and WuDunn show how concerned individuals everywhere are working effectively to empower women and help them overcome adversity. Wonderfully written and vividly descriptive, Half the Sky can and should galvanize support for reform on all levels.
Inspiring as it is shocking, this book demands to be read.
This is a book that will pierce your heart and arouse your conscience. It is a powerful piece of journalism by two masters of the craft who are tireless in their pursuit of one of the most shameful conditions of our time.

Both a brutal awakening and an unmistakable call to action, this book should be read by all. An unexpectedly uplifting read. With absolutely the right Molotov cocktail of on-the-ground reporting and hard social science, Kristof and WuDunn blow up this taboo.
