About: Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn are journalists who won a Pulitzer prize for their coverage of the Tiananmen massacre.
According to the Washington Post:
''"Half the Sky" is a call to arms, a call for help, a call for contributions, but also a call for volunteers. It asks us to open our eyes to this enormous humanitarian issue. It does so with exquisitely crafted prose and sensationally interesting material. It provides us with a list of individual hospitals, schools and small charities so that we can contribute to, or at least inform ourselves about, this largely unknown world. I really do think this is one of the most important books I have ever reviewed. I may be wrong, but I don't think so.' http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/09/10/AR2009091004106_2.html
