Empowering Women and Girls in the Developing World

Empowering Women and Girls in the Developing World

The New York Times Magazine recently dedicated an entire issue to the global concerns facing women and girls; award-winning journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn have been writing about these subjects for years and their book Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide was published this week; the Campaign for Female Education (Camfed), a non-profit that fights poverty and AIDS in rural Africa by educating girls and investing in their economic independence, produced the award-winning movie "Where Water Meets the Sky"; and the Clinton Global Initiative is dedicating a panel to "Investing in Women & Girls" on September 23rd.

Join Janera for an intimate conversation between Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Sheryl WuDunn, and Camfed executive director Ann Cotton. The two discuss the issues that women and girls face in the developing world and what we can do to improve their situation.
