A chance to see ‘Half the Sky’ this week

“Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide,” a four-hour documentary, will air tonight and tomorrow, beginning at 9 p.m. ET on MPBN. The two-part series is part of the Half the Sky movement, inspired by the book, Half the Sky, by journalists/authors Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.

The documentary accompanies Kristof, along with several actors/activists, to six countries where women – facing formidable oppression – are creating change.

The PBS website has extensive resources on the documentary, including behind-the-scenes extras and interviews.

[Trigger Alert: Documentary contains accounts of gender-based violence.]
