The Gannon Center and EVOKE present Half the Sky with Sheryl WuDunn


The 2010 Ann F. Baum Women and Leadership Speaker Series


Sheryl WuDunn is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author who has reported from inside some of the toughest regimes in the world, from Myanmar to North Korea. Her experiences trekking through Asia over the years, along with the reporting of her husband, New York Times Op-Ed Columnist Nicholas Kristof, led the two of them to write Half the Sky: From Oppression to Opportunity for Women Worldwide, about women in the developing world. Half the Sky illuminates the stories of many women who have suffered excruciatingly under their society’s feudal attitudes toward women. It also describes how a growing crop of social entrepreneurs, mostly local women, are solving these problems and transforming societies around them.
