Kudos for Kristof!

We are very excited that our ally and panelist on A POWERFUL NOISE Live, Nicholas Kristof, is shaking the tree and making lots of noise about the empowerment of women and girls around the world. Thanks to Mr. Kristof, this Sunday’s New York Times magazine is dedicated to international women’s issues. The magazine’s premiere article, The Woman’s Crusade, also mentions our main A POWERFUL NOISE partner CARE in the second paragraph. This will certainly go a long way in placing women’s issues and CARE’s great work at the center of a national dialogue. The catalyst for this issue is Kristof’s upcoming book, Half the Sky, which will be released September 8th. The book is an inspiring call-to-arms against the oppression of women and girls in the developing world. I encourage everyone to check out this extraordinary issue of the New York Times magazine and to purchase your copy of Half the Sky. Both will challenge and motivate you to make a real difference in the lives of women and girls everywhere.
