Stunned, unsettled and inspired after reading Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, I built this site to give context to the greatest human rights violations of our lifetimes. I'm Caitlin Vlastakis Smith, and this is a portion of my capstone project from Elon University's Interactive Media graduate program. I'm bringing forward snippets of content from the book to raise awareness and encourage anyone fighting global injustices, such as poverty, slavery, violence and terrorism, to gain a holistic understanding of the challenges and opportunities ahead by reading Half the Sky. Your world will change. Mine certainly has.
