Half the Sky

Turning oppression into opportunity for women worldwide

Book. Film. Game. MOVEMENT. Raising awareness and inspiring action to turn oppression to opportunity for women worldwide. With Pulitzer Prize winners Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn as our guides, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide undertakes an odyssey through Africa and Asia to meet the extraordinary women struggling there. Now, the documentary takes viewers to meet social entrepreneurs in Cambodia and Kenya, women leaders in Somaliland and India, and Americans partnering with many kinds of local change-makers. See how a little help can transform the lives of women and girls abroad. Unleashing that process globally is not only the right thing to do; it’s also the best strategy for fighting poverty. Deeply felt, pragmatic, and inspirational, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide is for every global citizen.

Mana Keepers

Sharing the gifts of Mother Nature...

Mana Keepers offers crystals, rocks, books, music, prints, cards, and art-work from local and international nature-loving artists. Nature has the power to rejuvenate, exhilarate, sooth, heal and inspire. It can stir the soul, elicit wonder, calm the mind of stress and ease tension from the body. Many of us in modern society don't have the occasion to enjoy the benefits of nature in our daily environment. Mana Keepers strives to give people everywhere an opportunity to bring a bit of the natural world into their everyday lives."I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright." ~Henry David Thoreau
