Sally Armstrong Discusses Uprising

Sally Armstrong has covered stories in zones of conflict all over the world. From Bosnia and Somalia to Rwanda and Afghanistan, her eyewitness reports have earned her the Amnesty International Media Award three times over, as well as acclaim all over the world. Sally shares her experiences reporting from the front lines and imparts her audiences with the lessons she’s learned from the battlefields surrounding the complexities of “human rights” versus “human wrongs.” Sally’s most recent book, Ascent of Women: Our turn, Our Way: A Remarkable Story of World-Wide Change, has just been published in the USA under the title Uprising: A New Age Is Dawning for Every Mother’s Daughter. Sally appeared on Meet the Press to talk about this landmark book that ties together feminism and our global economy, and brings us the voices of the women all over the world whose bravery and strength is changing the world as we know it.
