Nicholas Kristof on “The World’s Women”: Jan 31, 5:30pm
Nicholas Kristof, Pulitizer Prize-Winning New York Times journalist and co-author of Half the Sky, Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, will present “The World’s Women: Fighting Poverty & Repression by Empowering Women & Girls.”
Based on the book, Half the Sky, co-authored with wife and fellow Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Sheryl WuDunn, Kristof will make a passionate call to arms against our era’s most pervasive human rights violation: the oppression of women and girls in the developing world. Drawing on the breadth of his reporting experience, he will illuminate how the key to economic progress lies in unleashing women’s potential and how we can each do our part to support women’s empowerment worldwide.
