The Half the Sky Interest Group was formed as an outgrowth of the January 2011 branch book discussion of Kristof and WuDunn’s book Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide.
The Half the Sky Interest Group meets monthly to identify and support international women’s organizations. We have gone on field trips, attended movie/discussions, and read books. Each month, group members are encouraged to donate $5. The funds collected are distributed to various organizations that specialize in supporting women in developing countries.
Meetings are held at a member’s home, in the evening, usually monthly. We welcome all who are interested. The first meeting will be Tuesday September 19, at 7:30 pm at Perry Doubt’s home. For more information or to be placed on our email list, contact Betty Laliberte.
