Half the sky

Leave a comment

I think half the sky was a very eye opening experience. It shows women in American just how privileged we are. The numbers involved in the video such as 130 women being involved in FGM are astonishing. We need to have more people involved in helping out for a cause because bringing light to situations is how they get resolved. It is very disturbing to think that husbands and other men in the community can get away with rape and beating their wives. Such as the guy in the 2nd half of Half the sky that got away with raping the young girl and got out of jail. And then her dad kicked her out of the house because he said he was ashamed of her. It is just amazing to me to think about how uneducated men in 3rd world countries and how they can be so disrespectful to women in their communities.
