Half the Sky on PBS

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.

Tonight and tomorrow night, the multi-part documentary based on the book will premiere on PBS. I’m very excited, and will certainly be tuning in. I hope you will too.

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.
