Around the world, millions of girls face barriers to education that boys do not. And yet, when you educate a girl, you can break cycles of poverty in just one generation. Girl Rising is a groundbreaking feature film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to transform societies. The film presents the remarkable stories of nine girls around the world, told by celebrated writers and narrated by Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Selena Gomez and other renowned actors.
Girl Rising is also a movement for girls’ education that PeaceNiche and Radio1FM91 are proud to support.
