This is a call to action to everyone, but particularly Americans, to do something about the way women and girls are living in this world. It's not a women's issue, it's a human issue and it's clear we have a role to play. Nick Kristof and Sheryl Wu Dunn get it just right. There are some difficult, painful topics to read about, but they always give you hope that things can get better. The book deals with FGM/FGC, systematic rape, fistula, and other tough subjects, but it offers ideas on how you and I can help. Now get going!
