'Girl Rising' Screening and Discussion


Join us for a screening of ‘Girl Rising’, a film about the ways in which education can break cycles of poverty, violence and oppression. The screening will include a selection of stories of girls who have benefitted from having access to education from various parts of the world and will be followed by a discussion about the ways in which educating girls can benefit them and their communities as a whole.

Millions of girls around the world face barriers to education that boys do not. However, educated girls stand up for their rights, marry and have children later, educate their own children, and their families and communities thrive. 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.

Girl Rising is now a thriving community driving local change and motivating global leaders to take action. View the trailer here.

Showcasing these inspirational stories of girls escaping oppression and in turn creating opportunities for other young girls combats structural and institutional violence and is part of our larger vision to end all types of violence against women through our Help Anna campaign.
