“Women Hold Up Half the Sky”

“Bajalia is a wonderful example of exactly the kind of enterprise that taps and unleashes the power and economic potential of women.” Sheryll WuDunn co- author of Half the Sky.

I have been in constant communication with Sheryl WuDunn recently. Our Bajalia Team thinks her book tells the story of why we do what we do better than anyone else — so much so that we wanted promotional copies to pass around to our team here and abroad. She is an amazing woman who graciously gave us several things to talk about with HSN at a recent meeting including the use of the above quote.

Sheryl also says:

“Half The Sky echoes what Bajalia is doing — a call to join a movement to create change and make the world a better place — with specific concrete steps, from starting your own action club to sponsoring young women abroad, fundraising to build schools, helping create new foundations, new women-focused businesses.”

Sheryl, we couldn’t agree more. We love having you on our team and being a part of yours. Thank you to Nicholas Kristoff, as well, for continuing to carry the torch keeping global issues at the forefront in the New York Times. You two are truly a power couple!

Great things happen when men and women, here and abroad, join as a collective force with one voice. We can change the world one entrepreneur at a time.

We are women, hear us roar! In numbers too big to ignore…

Don’t worry, I won’t be asking anyone to do karaoke on stage with me in Dubai, at least not yet.
