Wudunn-kristoffThe inaugural Bluma Lecture takes place tonight at 7 p.m. at the Bram & Bluma Appel Salon at the Toronto Reference Library.

Pulitzer prize winners Sheryl WuDunn and Nicholas Kristof will speak about "our era's most pervasive human rights violation: the oppression of women and girls in the developing world," and how it is apparent, through the stories they portray in their documentary series "Half The Sky" now airing on PBS, "that the key to economic progress lies in unleashing women's potential." The Lecture will be moderated by Ellie Tesher.
