Event Description
International Education Week 2013
(Women and Education on a Global Scale)
presents GIRL RISING

Girl Rising is a global campaign to educate and empower girls—working to create a
ripple effect that will transform communities for generations.
 
At the center of the Girl Rising campaign is an innovative feature film of the same name,
which journeys around the globe to witness the strength of the human spirit and the
power of education to change the world. From Academy Award-nominated director
Richard E. Robbins, Girl Rising spotlights the stories of unforgettable girls born into
unforgiving circumstances. It captures their dreams, their voices, and their remarkable
lives.
 
By sharing their personal journeys, the girls of Girl Rising become our teachers. As one
of them says, “I feel as though I have power…I can do anything. And I have
important things to do.” Research shows that investing in girls can transform families,
communities, and nations. The girls of Girl Rising show us how.
