Women hold up half the sky. - Chinese Proverb
Welcome to Half the Sky, a news and information
letter provided by Women’s & Gender Studies at New England College.
The title for this information link is taken from a Chinese proverb that recognizes the importance of women’s contributions to the world through a very simple observation: More than half of the world’s population is female. This fact has often been lost in our efforts to recognize women’s work and the reality of their lives in the global village that is our world.
