Are you interested in empowering girls to break through stereotypes around education?
From India to the U.S. and beyond, it’s been nearly five years since the documentary Girl Rising debuted, igniting a global movement in support of girls’ education and equality. With millions of girls still not in school, what began as a feature film grew into a movement. Airing in over 170 countries, translated into more than 30 languages and viewed by over 200 million people, Girl Rising has inspired action that’s getting girls into classrooms worldwide.
Girl Rising started as a film profiling nine unforgettable girls coming of age in the developing world and confronting barriers to their education. Powered by these stories of resilience and determination, the film exploded into a global campaign for girls’ education.
One book for young adults, Girl Rising: Changing the World One Girl at a Time, tells the story of girls around the world with stunning full-color photos from the film shoots, infographics, and recent statistics of the state of girls around the world.
Just in time for International Day of the Girl, it is now available in paperback! This newest edition has the same inspiring stories and photos as the hardcover version, plus a new foreword by David Oyelowo, updated statistics, and updates about the girls in the film!
