Girl Rising

Girl Rising is an organization with a mission of educating and empowering girls worldwide. They work to tell the stories of girls through film, television, social media videos, graphic novels, radio, and curriculum for teachers. Offering a free curriculum for teachers and multi-media resources to engage students, Girl Rising is an avenue to get students involved in making change.  Unesco statistics state that 130 million girls worldwide are denied an education due to lack of resources, gender inequity, early marriage, sex trafficking, and violence.

The first film Girl Rising produced focused on nine girls in developing countries working to survive and thrive despite what many would view as insurmountable odds.  Who were the nine girls?
