Global Women’s Rights at the 92nd Street Y

by Eliza C. Thompson

In case you didn’t catch this weekend’s awesome, 100-percent female-focused New York Times Magazine, next month you can hear the cover story’s authors Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn discuss the incredible women they’ve met while traveling the world. On September 13, Kristof and WuDunn will stop into the 92nd Street Y for the first public event promoting their book Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. After a Q-and-A session with Dan Rather, Kristof and WuDunn will take audience questions and autograph copies of their new book (available September 8 from Knopf).

This week’s special issue of the Times Magazine focused on ‘Saving the World’s Women’ and devoted nearly every page to articles about women’s rights and the challenges faced by women in the developing world. The magazine also featured interviews with badass ladies Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Hillary Rodham Clinton. If you missed the print edition, no worries — has you covered! You can check out Kristof and WuDunn’s story ‘The Women’s Crusade’ here.
