Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and best-selling author Sheryl WuDunn will discuss “Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide” Nov. 9, 7:30 p.m. at the University of Richmond’s Modlin Center for the Arts.

A graduate of Harvard Business School, WuDunn has spent much of her career covering economic, political and social issues, and bringing attention to issues women face. She and her husband, Nicholas D. Kristof, won a Pulitzer Prize for their coverage of China for The New York Times.

She and Kristof have co-authored three best-selling books, including “Half the Sky,” the University of Richmond’s “One Book, One Campus” selection for 2011-12. The book won the Beacon Award from the White House Project, a nonprofit organization that seeks to advance women’s leadership.  WuDunn is a senior managing director at a boutique investment banking firm in New York and a lecturer at Yale University’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs.

The talk is co-sponsored by the Jepson Leadership Forum and the University’s “One Book, One Campus” program. A reception and book signing will follow.
