Inspiration comes from many avenues. In our WISE Bookshelf feature, members share some of the titles that have encouraged them to think outside of the box, try a new approach, dig down deep for the confidence they needed to make that big decision or simply allowed them a reprieve from the daily grind. Happy reading!


Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide

Author: Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn
Genre: Women’s Studies


Half The Sky has a lot to do with how we’re really doing with women in society beyond the United States, especially in the Middle East. It’s a good reminder of how much work remains to be done.
