Girl Rising! Now available on DVD

By on March 14, 2014

It is astounding, but true. There are 33 million less girls in primary school than there are boys. It is not because the girls do not want to go to school. It is because going to school is not considered a priority for them because of their gender. Girl Rising! showcases the life-changing impact of educating girls. It highlights the lives of nine extraordinary girls from nice countries and is narrated by some familiar international voices – Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, Freida Pinto, Selena Gomez, Liam Neeson, Priyanka Chopra and Alicia Keys among others. From the 7-year old Haitian earthquake survivor to the Afghani child bride, in countries from Cambodia to Peru,, India to Ethiopia and around the world, these girls just want to be educated. The world needs to realize the importance of educating girls, because we fail to do so at our own peril.

The DVD for this groundbreaking and illuminating movie is now available for purchase at Amazon.
