A Path Appears follows the team that created the groundbreaking book and series Half the Sky, throughout the United States, Colombia, Haiti and Kenya, as it tackles essential gender inequality themes, including teen pregnancy, violence, human trafficking and the cycle of poverty.

Throughout their explorations, inspiring activists guide author/reporters Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, focusing squarely on the harshest forms of gender-based repression and human rights violations. They uncover the deep and lasting solutions being implemented to both transform lives and provide a guide for sustainable future change, along the way.

You too can help change lives of so many. When poor people have access to financial services, secure savings, credit, insurance and other products – they can lift themselves out of poverty.
