About the Book: New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof and his wife, Sheryl WuDunn, a former Times reporter, make a brilliantly argued case for investing in the health and autonomy of women worldwide. More girls have been killed in the last fifty years, precisely because they were girls, than men were killed in all the wars of the twentieth century, they write, detailing the rampant gendercide in the developing world, particularly in India and Pakistan. The authors reveal local women to be the most effective change agents.

Join YNPNsfba for a provocative discussion of Kristof and WuDunn's recent book Half the Sky in honor of International Women's Day. This critically acclaimed book explores how women can have a powerful role in ending poverty and extremism. This event is perfect for activists and thinkers who want to learn more about this topic and get involved. Refreshments to follow.
