Appendix: Organizations Supporting Women
Starred Review. New York Times columnist Kristof and his wife, WuDunn, a former Times reporter, make a brilliantly argued case for investing in the health and autonomy of women worldwide. More girls have been killed in the last fifty years, precisely because they were girls, than men were killed in all the wars of the twentieth century, they write, detailing the rampant gendercide in the developing world, particularly in India and Pakistan. Far from merely making moral appeals, the authors posit that it is impossible for countries to climb out of poverty if only a fraction of women (9% in Pakistan, for example) participate in the labor force. China’s meteoric rise was due to women’s economic empowerment: 80% of the factory workers in the Guangdong province are female; six of the 10 richest self-made women in the world are Chinese. The authors reveal local women to be the most effective change agents: The best role for Americans… isn’t holding the microphone at the front of the rally but writing the checks, an assertion they contradict in their unnecessary profiles of American volunteers finding compensations for the lack of shopping malls and Netflix movies in making a difference abroad.

Wonder Switch : The Difference Between Limiting Your Life And Living Your D$25.99Add to cart
Reclaim your wonder, reshape your life.
We are all born with the wonder switch in the “on” position, but somewhere along the way, our wonder was crushed. When wonder dies, we begin believing the messages telling us to grow up and get in line. In other words, we were made for wonder, but it’s been educated right out of our souls.
Yet reclaiming your wonder–and with it, your life–is within your reach. In The Wonder Switch, join professional illusionist Harris III in a journey to bring you back to magic–not the stuff of sleight of hand that he performs across world stages, but real magic: love, hope, joy, belonging, meaning, and purpose.
Cynicism is the force that actively shuts down all of these things. But wonder is the key that unlocks your permission to believe again. The secret to a vibrant life is found in reawakening your childlike wonder, helping you to stop misusing your imagination to worry, and get back to dreaming, innovating, and creating the life you were actually meant to live.
In this book, you’ll discover:
*The surprising science behind the stories we tell ourselves and how they shape our lives
*How to identify what’s crushing your wonder
*Practices for getting curious and dreaming again
*How to create better internal drama that energizes rather than drains us
*The tools you need to redesign your life
*Why worry is a misuse of your imagination, and how to kick the habit
The beginning of everything you want, Harris writes, is on the other side of this switch.
