The book “Half the Sky” about women around the world

leave a comment »

Good Morning entrepreneurs,

I want to dedicate my post today to speak about the fabulous book of Half the Sky, in which the winners of the Pulitzer Nicholas D.Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, offer a poignant journey through Asia and Africa through the story of women who are changing the world after have been victims of  violations of their rights.

Three  of these women are from Ashoka . This organization  is leading a profound transformation in society.

Women hold up half the sky is a Chinese proverb, however, is above all an aspiration : In much of the world, the girls are uneducated and marginalized, and it is no coincidence that those same countries is where there is the  poverty  disproportionately and chaos.

…………………………Good Morning my friends,

How are you? Sorry for my delay today but I am here.

Things are changing in the world “great step” we all have dreams for our world is to achieve.

Things that seem impossible are possible with a little help and willpower I was reading this morning from many countries of course each with their different , incredible histories and situations of enterprising people wanting to fight and pull a cart of difficulties with common goal to realize his dream.

Example the case in Turkey at the lack of resources and a tradition of resistance to educating girls, Akin Yavuz than 13 years, the idea of going to school was unbearable and he wrote to the director threatening to commit suicide but was allowed to attend.

 

Their dreams are part of a transformation that is taking the country the government’s effort to increase the growth of children to school especially girls begin to take momentum. Turkey reflects a huge change that is taking on the value of educating girls.

 

Open door to door getting initial achievements,

Best regards,

Mireya
