The Longest Revolution

by Armstrong, Sally

In POWER SHIFT internationally renowned journalist and human rights activist Sally Armstrong dives deep into the longest revolution in history: the fight for the equal status of women and girls.

A power shift has been occurring. In many ways it's never been a better time to be a woman, yet the promise of equality still eludes half the world's population.

Drawing on anthropology, social science, literature, politics, economics and decades of on the ground experience, Sally illustrates how inequality cuts across cultures, socioeconomic status, age and geography, and argues that the status of the female half of humanity is crucial to our collective surviving and thriving. The key to the success of the power shift, in Sally's words, starts with "bringing all the voices of all the changemakers to the table."

Sally Armstrong is the author of four bestselling books and was the first journalist to bring the story of the women of Afghanistan to the world. She has covered stories in conflict zones in Bosnia, Somalia, Rwanda, Iraq, South Sudan, Israel and more. She is a four-time winner of the Amnesty International Canada media award, the recipient of ten honorary degrees, and an Officer of the Order of Canada.

POWER SHIFT is this year's Massey Lecture.
