[1]Half the Sky: Oppression into Opportunity
Filmed in 10 countries, the series follows Nicholas Kristof and celebrity activists America Ferrera, Diane Lane, Eva Mendes, Meg Ryan, Gabrielle Union and Olivia Wilde on a journey to tell the stories of inspiring, courageous individuals. Across the globe oppression is being confronted, and real meaningful solutions are being fashioned through health care, education, and economic empowerment for women and girls. The linked problems of sex trafficking and forced prostitution, gender-based violence, and maternal mortality – which needlessly claim one woman every 90 seconds – present to us the single most vital opportunity of our time: the opportunity to make a change. Half the Sky was filmed in Cambodia, Kenya, India, Sierra Leone, Somililand, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Liberia and the U.S.

Tune in April 22 and 29 at 10:00pm on KERA TV.
