Inspiring New Book: 'Teach a Woman to Fish: Overcoming Poverty Around the Globe'.

Just published, this book will raise consciousness levels around the barriers to women's empowerment, and how they are being overcome. The author is Ritu Sharma, co-founder of Women Thrive Worldwide, a non-profit that places the concerns of women and girls living in poverty at the forefront of US international assistance.

More about the book here: http://astore.amazon.com/wiswomwilsavt-20/detail/1137278587.

Here's a review from Melinda Gates:

“In Teach a Woman to Fish, Ritu Sharma shows us what unites women around the world: devotion to their families, pride in their children, and a willingness to sacrifice for a better future. Using highly accessible prose, she helps make the sometimes abstract concept of women’s empowerment concrete, showing how no matter where they live, women’s hard work is absolutely essential to building thriving communities” —Melinda Gates, Co-Chair and Trustee, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

I hope that much of the material in the book will also be available in other digital forms, to extend its reach and amplify its influence. What goes hand in hand with digital empowerment is the creation of engaging and insightful content. So hopefully any interviews and stories in the book were also captured in audio or video form during the research phase.
