The recent PBS documentary Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide shows how the Half the Sky Movement ignites the change needed to put an end to the oppression of women and girls worldwide. Inspired by journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn's book of the same name, the film shares many stories including that of Alice Kariuki, a farmer in Kenya who sells her mangoes to The Coca-Cola Company.
