Sheryl WuDunn, co-author,

First Asian-American reporter to win a Pulitzer Prize

This book is a passionate call to arms against what the authors argue is our era's most pervasive human right violation: the oppression of women and girls in the developing world. WuDunn shares stories of resilient women in Africa and Asia, depicting a world with anger, sadness, clarity and ultimately, hope. The book makes a compelling case that, throughout much of the world, the greatest unexploited economic resource is the female half of the population. These stories make the case that the key to economic progress lies in unleashing women's potential.
