Today mediabistro.com is featuring an interview with New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof and his wife and writing partner, Sheryl WuDunn. The two discuss they’re upcoming project, the book Half the Sky and its philanthropic spin-offs including their social movement Web site, HalfTheSkyMovement.org.
The couple said they hope the book, which focuses on women’s struggles and survival in developing nations, will foster a social movement for change.
“What we’ve written is a sort of do-it-yourself foreign aid tool kit,” Kristof said. “We hope to inform people, but also really help them figure how they can go about making a difference.”
With that in mind, Kristof and WuDunn offered some tips for writing for social change or trying to get people to care about your issue.
