Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist Sheryl WuDunn; How Empowering Women Empowers Us All, Kristof Farms, and the Helper’s High - EP 26

The first Asian-American reporter to win a Pulitzer Prize, Sheryl WuDunn has journeyed through several industries, from banking to journalism and beyond, pulling together critical insights to bear upon her work.  As the best-selling co-author of “Half the Sky,” “Tightrope” and “A Path Appears” amongst other books, Sheryl reminds us that women hold solutions to our world’s greatest challenges and that empowering women and girls is the most effective way to fight poverty and extremism. Selected as one of Newsweek’s “150 Women Who Shake the World” and listed as one of 60 notable members of the “League of Extraordinary Women,” WuDunn has helped raise awareness about the challenges facing women as well as models being a woman who makes an impact. 
In her inspirational best-selling book, “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide” – written with her husband, Nicholas Kristof – WuDunn goes beyond simply exposing the devastating daily reality for so many of the world’s women, and uses the powerful book as a call to action for solutions. Thanks to the book’s popularity and global impact, it soon grew into a multi-platform digital media effort that now includes a highly popular documentary series on PBS, mobile games and an online social media game on Facebook.
