Half the Sky Movement
How they are participating
Half the Sky Movement cuts across platforms to ignite the change needed to put an end to the oppression of women and girls worldwide - the defining issue of our time. Inspired by journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn's book of the same name, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide brings together video, websites, games, blogs and other educational tools to not only raise awareness of women's issues, but to also provide concrete steps to fight these problems and empower women. Throughout the month of November, Half the Sky Movement community ambassadors will incorporate the hashtag #givingtuesday into their fundraising events and screenings to help raise awareness and further the cause.
