Half the Sky

October 1, 2012

Students gathered Monday night to watch a PBS documentary entitled Half the Sky.  This film investigates the struggles of women worldwide.  Several individual stories were told, each addressing issues specific to certain areas of the globe.  Specific issues addressed in this first installment included sexual violence and rape in Africa and sex trafficking in Cambodia.  After the film, students discussed possible solutions to help those women as well as improve gender inequality here at home.
