Sheryl WuDunn & Half the Sky Movement

Journalist, lecturer and campaigner Sheryl WuDunn talks of denial to educate women in remote China, amongst other instances of global oppression – a voice to be heard.

That brings me to my first major of two tenets of “Half the Sky.” And that is that the central moral challenge of this century is gender inequity. In the 19th century, it was slavery. In the 20th century, it was totalitarianism. The cause of our time is the brutality that so many people face around the world because of their gender.
