Half the Sky

Leave a comment

I really enjoyed watching Half the Sky in class last week. I knew about a few of the topics discussed before but the video really opened my eyes to how much oppression women suffer from around the world. The video made me realize how lucky I am to be women in America. I had heard of female genital mutilation before but I was unaware of the amount of girls that have to go through that pain and suffering every year. I found it fascinating that women are being trained to help deliver babies from women that suffer from female genital mutilation. Hopefully, that will increase awareness that the tradition is not healthy and it needs to come to an end.
