        For centuries, our eyes have tended to overlook them, these briefly-mentioned, often nameless women in Scripture who were holding up half the sky. But they are there if you look, just as there are Huldahs and Salomes and Junias amongst us today too, in our churches and our homes and our communities; often unrecognised or with names not well-known. Women Hold Up Half the Sky is a new, special exhibit at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Visitor Center in Seattle. The exhibit was inspired by the critically-acclaimed book, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity Worldwide, and features stories of women who have changed their lives through education, economic empowerment, courage, and hope.
