Women's Rights & the Mother-in-Law

In this brief Glamour magazine interview actor and humanitarian Ben Affleck interviews Pulitzer Prize-winning couple Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, authors of Half the Sky, and global activists in the fight to make international women’s rights the top priority of our time. 

Kristof: There’s a perception that men are the culprits of the terrible things done to women. Often they are, but there is no worse oppressor to women and girls in much of the world than the mother-in-law.

WuDunn: It’s frustrating to be looking in, and to say, “How come they don’t get it?” But it’s the rules of their culture.
