5.0 out of 5 stars Prescription for moving into action, 8 July 2010
This review is from: Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide (Vintage) (Paperback)
This is not just a read - albeit an essential read as other reviewers have said. This book is a call to action. Forget the Book Club format of just sitting around discussing and socialising, this book requires action. Direct accounts of life experiences, often shocking but always inspiring, means that our lives and the lives of those in this book directly connect and these are presented in such a way that we cannot ignore the connection, nor can we remain passive.

It is a call to action where individuals can respond at the local level or the global - you choose. But for those of us privileged to have choices in our lives - we must choose what from of action to take in response to this inspiring book.

The implications are too great, the potential change too profound.

Indeed, not just an amazing read...
