What it is: Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn present a passionate and eloquent call to arms against the opression of women and girls in the developing world.

Why I love it: Reading this book allowed me to understand the bigger picture of women’s empowerment to which the IMAGINE Initiative is contributing a missing piece.

What’s in it: Take an odyssey through Africa and Asia to meet the extraordinary women struggling there, among them a Cambodian teenager sold into sex slavery and an Ethiopian woman who suffered devastating injuries in childbirth. Drawing on the breadth of their combined reporting experience, Kristof and WuDunn depict our world with anger, sadness, clarity, and, ultimately, hope.
