Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Half the Sky Movement: The Game is unlike any other game on Facebook. Instead of the plot taking a backseat to gameplay, Half the Sky Movement switches things around and puts the focus squarely on characters, situations, and issues. It's not quite an interactive book -- there's still plenty to do, including resource-gathering, buying and selling, and opening up new areas to visit -- but the people and their everyday struggles will resonate strongly with players, even more so since every scenario is inspired by real issues that women face around the world every day.

What's more, Half the Sky Movement encourages players to become directly involved in finding solutions to the issues by donating money to real charities, spreading the word on Facebook, and taking action in their own communities and beyond. It's entertaining, educational, and inspirational all at the same time.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
