Half the Sky Mobile

Just as slavery was the defining struggle of the 19th century and totalitarianism that of the 20th, the fight to end the oppression of women and girls defines ours. In 2009, with the acclaimed bestselling book, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide (already in its 22nd printing), journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn took on this urgent moral challenge and encouraged readers to join the burgeoning movement for change.

E-Line has partnered with Games for Change to advice and help build publishing infrastructure on two game initiatives that are part of the transmedia project: a series of mobile games that address issues of maternal health, de-worming and gender norms to be distributed to mobile devices in India, Kenya and Tanzania and a social game designed to raise awareness and drive action around the issues covered in Half the Sky.
