Sheryl WuDunn: Our century’s greatest injustice

I’m in Puerto Rico on vacation this week. Due to a bruised foot, I cannot be as active as I had planned to be. Rather than feel sorry for myself, I’ve tried to make the best of the situation — and it’s been a good week.

During times I need to rest my foot, I read or I watch some TED videos. Most TED talks I’ve watched make me grateful and inspire me.

This one angered and inspired me — and made me extremely grateful. (no more pity-parties for myself)

It also gave me hope, that with people like Sheryl WuDunn researching and talking about the injustice of women — and you and I doing our part — things might change.

Sheryl WuDunn and her husband, Nicholas D. Kristof, have written a book Half The Sky — it’s on my reading list now.

What about you – do you think there is hope for things to change concerning the injustice of females worldwide?

PS. The Winner of the book contest for Evolving in Monkey Town is Warren Baldwin. Congrats Warren! The book will be on its way soon.
