Girl Rising

Everyone knows Malala, the Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot by the Taliban. Malala was attacked for voicing a simple principle: all girls should go to school. There are thousands of girls like Malala around the world who are standing up for their voices to be heard and their right to be educated, and the extraordinary GIRL RISING tells some of their stories. Wadly, from Haiti, refuses to leave a post-earthquake tent school when she can no longer pay. Suma, from Nepal, escapes bondage when a kind teacher helps change her life. Senna, from Peru, whose father died following a hard life as a miner, finds solace in poetry. Removing barriers to girls’ education - early marriage, sex trafficking, gender discrimination and violence, and limited healthcare - means a better life for girls and a safer, healthier world for us all. These brave young ladies are the best proof that change is coming. Narrated by Anne Hathaway, Selena Gomez, Meryl Streep, and more. (InEnglish and Spanish, Creole, and Arabic with subtitles) – B.B.
