Half The Sky

27 Mar 2010 by Lewis, View Comments

Last night I had the benefit of spending time with Josh Stamberg, talented actor and man with great heart (he happens to living in town filming season 2 of Drop Dead Diva). It is amazing when and where the conversation around women saving the world will show up – and it did for Josh and myself almost as soon as we sat down. I hope to interview Josh about his views on this topic as he seems to have a clear view.

Josh turned me on to Half The Sky – a book by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. The premise of the book is the safety and a study of women around the world and an inspiring vision of the way to bring about change is to educate girls and bring women into the world economy. WOW! I have just ordered my copy and look forward to sharing more on this book. I have a feeling that this is JUST the beginning of my discussion around this work and perhaps it will lead to meeting the authors. I encourage you to visit the website. I love the stories section which outlines testimonials from some very strong women making change in their global communities.
