Amy Grant - Third World Woman
"I was honored to be asked to be part of this promotion for this important project. Half The Sky: Turning Oppresion into Opportunity for Women Worldwide is a documentary that takes an in-depth look at the oppression of women and girls around the world, a horrific problem that needs to be brought to the attention of all of us. My contribution, 'Third World Women,' was written years ago with my dear friend Chris Eaton. At the time we wrote the song I wasn't even working on a new record and I had no idea where the song would ever find a home but I was haunted by the idea of a woman in a third world country waiting for women like me to fight for her to have a better life.
Since recording it, I have performed it many times but I can't think of a better 'home' for this song than as part of this very important project. I hope and pray for a better, safer world to be a woman no matter what corner of the world you call home."Visit Amy Grant's site
