Nicholas Kristof spoke to a packed house for the Shirley Sugerman Interfaith Forum and the Center on Religion, Culture and Conflict at Drew University on March 19, 2013.  The two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and co-author (with his wife Sheryl WuDunn) of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, discussed the bestselling book, and the movement that it launched.  Kristof spoke passionately about the challenges facing girls and women globally.  He shared stories about the incredible ways that women around the world are overcoming the odds, to better their lives, including insights into how religions might play a critical role in this effort. Before the lecture, held in the Concert Hall of the Dorothy Young Center for the Arts, Kristof met with students from all three schools at Drew, and stuck around after to take photos and sign copies of Half the Sky.
