Award-winning journalist, Nicholas Kristof, sits down to discuss women's oppression, healthcare, the election, and US policy in Syria. Kristof is a journalist, author, op-ed columnist, and winner of two Pulitzer Prizes. He and his wife, Sheryl WuDunn, recently published "Half the Sky," an in-depth look at the toll that the oppression of women takes on families and societies and a survey of inspiring stories of women who beat the odds.
Nicholas Kristof has written an op-ed column for The New York Times since November 2001. The Washington Post says that he "rewrote opinion journalism" with his emphasis on human rights abuses and social injustices, such as human trafficking and the Darfur conflict. Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa has described Kristof as an "honorary African" for shining a spotlight on neglected conflicts.
