Creators of “Half the Sky” Release Sneak Peek of New Documentary Series “A Path Appears”

by Marissa Dubecky

Check out the new trailer from reporters Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn’s three-part documentary series, A Path Appears, premiering in January 2015 on PBS. The inspiring series will provide a voice for women around the world facing gender-based oppression and explore solutions to widespread social ills.  

Like their earlier book-turned-film, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, the new docu-series shows how Kristof and WuDunn develop innovative strategies to combat issues such as sex-trafficking, gender-based violence, and poverty by looking at the “roots of vulnerability.” The reporters determine that small interventions in children’s lives have the power to “change the course of history.”

Kristof and WuDunn are joined by a long list of celebrity activists including Ashley Judd – a sexual abuse survivor – and Mia Farrow – a longtime advocate for domestic violence and sexual assault victims. Together, the team ignites hope and opens solution-seeking dialogue in communities worldwide.

Playing on PBS, this film is sure to provide a vast audience with an understanding of the severity and prevalence of these worldwide issues. Join their efforts by watching the series premiere on January 26, 2015.
