Today’s New York Times Magazine is centered around women’s issues and rights. There’s a headlining piece by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn on “Why Women’s Rights are the Cause of Our Time,” based/taken from their upcoming book Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide (available on September 8th). There’s an interview with Hillary Rodham Clinton about the administration’s plans to push women’s rights on international stage (although, I personally am kinda doubting their ability to do this properly with an extremely expansive domestic plan and two wars to fight abroad). There’s a piece on a Dexter Filken’s attempt to buy a schoolbus for girls in Afghanistan. There’s a ton more but I don’t feel like listing all of them.
