A while back, I posted about reading Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn’s Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, and a dharma talk I delivered that was inspired by it. I have no doubt that it’s the most important subject I’ve ever addressed in a dharma talk, and that Half the Sky is one of the two or three most important books I’ve ever read.
In celebration of this event, I’m reposting my dharma talk about Half the Sky below. I hope you’ll give a listen, share it, and spread the word about the documentary. And don’t forget to join the movement at www.halftheskymovement.org.
