Girl Rising: Screenings Start This Week!

“When you make a beautiful movie, you can touch people’s hearts.”
~Holly Gordon, executive producer of Girl Rising and executive director of 10×10

It’s almost here! The much-anticipated film Girl Rising hits theaters tomorrow. In today’s countdown to International Women’s Day we tell you how you can be among the first to see Girl Rising, an innovative feature film that spotlights the stories of nine unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances.

Directed by Academy Award nominee Richard E. Robbins and featuring the voice talents of Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Selena Gomez and Alicia Keys among others, Girl Rising depicts the stories of amazing girls, including two World Vision sponsored children, Ruksana from India and Azmera from Ethiopia. This film demonstrates the power of education to change a girl – and the world.

You can be a part of this movement as well.  Educate your community while supporting a movement for girls everywhere!
