Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide

watching this documentary on pbs right now.. unbelievably important book & documentary highlighting one of the most heartbreaking human rights crisises in the world today.

"girls & women aged 15-44 are more likely to be killed or maimed at the hands of men than die from cancer malaria, & war, combined."

i can’t believe we treat our women like this in 2012 - our mothers, sisters, daughters. shameful, deplorable behavior.
