The Girl Effect, Slavery, and Prostitution: Half the Day Intro and Chaps. 1 & 2

This post is part of the April Social Justice Book Club. This week we are discussing Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.

The above video is from the organization The Girl Effect and it gets to the heart of not only the title of the introduction to Half the Sky, but also the the heart of the book itself.

Today, at Approaching Justice, I have posted three posts about the beginning chapters of Half the Sky:

The Girl Effect (Half the Sky Intro) #sjbc

Emancipating Twenty-First-Century Slaves (Half the Sky Chap. 1) #sjbc

Prostitution is the Absence of Choice (Half the Sky Chap. 2) #sjbc

At all three of the above post, you will find a brief video related to the chapter, as well as discussion questions. We would love to hear your responses. Even if you have not read or finished the book, these are issues that many of you have read and/or thought about. Please chime in!
