Every girl has the right to education and safety in pursuit of her dreams. Educating girls can break cycles of poverty in just one generation. Educated girls stand up for their rights, marry and have children later, educate their own children, and their families and communities thrive. Yet millions of girls around the world face barriers to education that boys do not. Removing barriers such as early marriage, gender-based violence, domestic slavery and sex trafficking means not only a better life for girls, but a safer, healthier and more prosperous world for all. Please join us for an opportunity to see this inspiring film. Girl Rising uses the power of storytelling to share the simple truth that educating girls can transform societies. The movement unites girls, women, boys and men who believe every girl has the right to go to school and reach her full potential.
