Half the Sky

October 3, 2012 | 1 Comment

Half the Sky, a documentary based on the book of the same name, was shown on PBS October 1 & 2. However, if you missed it, it’s available in its entirety thru October 10 online. I haven’t seen it yet, but I read the book after it was given to me as a wonderfully thoughtful speaker’s gift. “Half the Sky follows six celebrity activists including Diane Lane, America Ferrera, Olivia Wilde, and Gabrielle Union as they travel to nine countries and meet inspiring, courageous individuals who are confronting oppression and developing real, meaningful solutions.”

    Thanks for the heads up on this documentary and book. I would like to suggest another book. Corban Addison’s “A Walk across the Sun” is a beautifully written novel that incorporates all levels of human trafficking. The author traveled internationally with International Justice Mission to spend time with experts and activists in the field. Great read. http://corbanaddison.com
