天空的另一半 – Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas D. Kristof, Sheryl WuDunn

在普利策新闻奖得主尼可拉斯·D.克里斯多夫和雪莉·邓恩夫妇这对有丰富联合报道经验的记者伉俪的带领下,我们在本书中去亚非拉国家做了一次长途冒险旅行。在那里,我们看到性别歧视、性暴力、厌女价值观、家庭暴力、处女情结等现象,让女性犹如仍置身在18、19世纪的炼狱。我们也看到那里的女性进行了艰苦卓绝的抗争,以及如何一点小小的帮助就能改变她们的命运。

通过这些故事,作者向我们展示了女性的生存困境,整个世界对此困境的态度,以及女性身上自我觉醒的力量。她们将绝望化为希望,勇敢争取生命尊严。

本书以人物故事为线索,佐以大量的数据,没有局限于对女性遭遇的报道,还展示了社会、经济、文化、心理等多维度的思考。同时,本书也为那些想为世界尽一份力的人们提供了切实可行的参考。

From two of our most fiercely moral voices, a passionate call to arms against our era’s most pervasive human rights violation: the oppression of women and girls in the developing world.

With Pulitzer Prize winners Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn as our guides, we undertake an odyssey through Africa and Asia to meet the extraordinary women struggling there, among them a Cambodian teenager sold into sex slavery and an Ethiopian woman who suffered devastating injuries in childbirth. Drawing on the breadth of their combined reporting experience, Kristof and WuDunn depict our world with anger, sadness, clarity, and, ultimately, hope.

They show how a little help can transform the lives of women and girls abroad. That Cambodian girl eventually escaped from her brothel and, with assistance from an aid group, built a thriving retail business that supports her family. The Ethiopian woman had her injuries repaired and in time became a surgeon. A Zimbabwean mother of five, counseled to return to school, earned her doctorate and became an expert on AIDS.

Through these stories, Kristof and WuDunn help us see that the key to economic progress lies in unleashing women’s potential. They make clear how so many people have helped to do just that, and how we can each do our part. Throughout much of the world, the greatest unexploited economic resource is the female half of the population. Countries such as China have prospered precisely because they emancipated women and brought them into the formal economy. Unleashing that process globally is not only the right thing to do; it’s also the best strategy for fighting poverty.

Deeply felt, pragmatic, and inspirational, Half the Sky is essential reading for every global citizen.
