Nicholas D. Kristof
“In the nineteenth century, the central moral challenge was slavery. In the twentieth century, it was the battle against totalitarianism. We believe that in this century the paramount moral challenge will be the struggle for gender equality around the world.”
Nicholas D. Kristof, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide

Jack Canfield
“Everything you want is on the other side of fear.”
Jack Canfield

Charlotte Brontë
“Flirting is a woman’s trade, one must keep in practice.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Nicholas D. Kristof
“So let us be clear about this up front: We hope to recruit you to join an incipient movement to emancipate women and fight global poverty by unlocking women's power as economic catalysts. That is the process under way - not a drama of victimization but of empowerment, the kind that transforms bubbly teenage girls from brothel slaves into successful businesswomen.

This is a story of transformation. It is change that is already taking place, and change that can accelerate if you'll just open your heart and join in.”
Nicholas D. Kristof, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide

Nicholas D. Kristof
“More girls were killed in the last 50 years, precisely because they were girls, than men killed in all the wars in the 20th century. More girls are killed in this routine gendercide in any one decade than people were slaughtered in all the genocides of the 20th century.

The equivalent of 5 jumbo jets worth of women die in labor each day... life time risk of maternal death is 1,000x higher in a poor country than in the west. That should be an international scandal.”
Nicholas D. Kristof, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide
