5. drawing from the documentary half the sky, do wealthy countries have a responsibility to help poor countries improve their maternal health care? why or why not? do you think individuals from wealthy countries or international organizations can be effective in the developing world? what are the benefits and challenges? what role do you think you can play?
6. drawing from the documentary half the sky, what role has the issue of economic empowerment played in your life? were there different economic expectations for girls and boys in your community or family? were you expected to be financially independent when you grew up? how did your experience compare to that of the women in the film?
