Join Program Board Speakers Committee, USC Institute for Global Health, and USC Spectrum for rousing discussion of the global movement and book, Half the Sky, presented by Nicholas Kristof, noted global health journalist and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner.
Kristof’s original reporting from under-represented regions of the world has helped establish him as regarded voice in the world of opinion journalism. Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide is a passionate call to arms against our era’s most pervasive human rights violation: the oppression of women and girls in the developing world.
Inspired by journalists Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn's book of the same name, 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.
