SOLUTION: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women (and Girls) Worldwide | Book & Documentary Film Project

This is a book and documentary film project that I learned about through a post by Rose Winstanley-Trefz (Worldwide Women's Support Circle) in the Women As Visionaries group on Facebook. Eliminating the human trafficking of girls and women is one goal, and the written and visual projects support change in any area where oppression and degradation occur. 
It's projects like these that THIS PROJECT supports through ENERGY INTENTION for creative answers and solutions of all kinds. I see this project as loving and caring solution EVIDENCE. Keep it coming!
"I have just started listening to the audio book of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. This is an amazing book filled with so many eye opening examples of the nightmares facing so many girls and women worldwide. We must end human trafficking, as only one example. Please share this clip! If you have a book club, please read the book! It is critical to join in this movement to wake-up and end these inhumane acts against our worlds girls/women NOW!

'With Pulitzer Prize winners Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn as our guides, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide undertakes an odyssey through Africa and Asia to meet the extraordinary women struggling there. Now, the documentary takes viewers to meet social entrepreneurs in Cambodia and Kenya, women leaders in Somaliland and India, and Americans partnering with many kinds of local change-makers.

See how a little help can transform the lives of women and girls abroad. That Cambodian girl eventually escaped from her brothel and, with assistance from an aid group, built a thriving retail business that supports her family. The Ethiopian woman had her injuries repaired and in time became a surgeon. A Zimbabwean mother of five, counseled to return to school, earned her doctorate and became an expert on AIDS.' "
