Half the Sky Movement

Here we are learning and doing more about helping girls with our Global Sisterhood.

Watch this program to get inspired!

Gabrielle Union, Olivia Wilde, Sheryl WuDunn and Nicholas Kristof discuss solutions to the most pressing problems facing women: maternal mortality, gender-based violence, sex trafficking and forced prostitution. Education and economic empowerment are the ladder to a better life for women, their families and communities.
