Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women and Girls Worldwide was the inspiration for the Skirball exhibition Women Hold Up Half the Sky, organized and presented by the Skirball in 2011–2012.
From the first married couple to win a Pulitzer Prize for journalism comes a passionate call to arms against the oppression of women around the globe. Through inspiring stories Kristoff and DuWunn show that the most effective way to fight global poverty is to unleash the potential of women and offer a do-it-yourself toolkit for those who want to help.
