Event Details

For our next Reading Group we'll be discussing Half the Sky by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. The book presents a passionate call to arms against our era’s most pervasive human rights violation: the oppression of women and girls in the developing world. Through stories and personal encounters, the authors help us see that the key to economic progress lies in unleashing women’s potential. Throughout much of the world, the greatest unexploited economic resource is the female half of the population. Unleashing that process globally is not only the right thing to do; it’s also the best strategy for fighting poverty. For a preview of the book, check out Sheryl's TED Talk here.


We will begin the evening by screening excerpts from the Half the Sky documentaryfollowed by a discussion of the movie and book. This event will be a fantastic learning opportunity for men and women alike, and will inspire us all to get more involved at some level. The book is available at Amazon.com in paperback and digital versions.


An appropriate setting for our evening, 
Dr. Bombay's funds The Learning Tea which provides life scholarships to impoverished young women in India by giving them the opportunity to continue their education through university. And it's pretty delicious, so come thirsty!

We look forward to seeing you there!
