Next time you are contemplating if you should watch the Chipotle documentary on Netflix, watch Girl Rising instead. It will burst your CP bubble and make realize there are bigger struggles than the ones we all lament on twitter.
As part of the larger campaign for women’s access to education, Girl Rising is a documentary following young girls struggling to obtain education throughout the world.
Using the harrowing narratives of nine young girls (voiced by famous women), Girl Rising exposes the overwhelming obstacles girls face around the globe just to get a basic education, including sex trafficking, child marriage and gender-based violence.
Theater screenings are not currently available in Texas, however if enough of us text in we can change that. And for the price of a Saturday night movie, you can by the DVD or Downloadable version.
If you would like to host or attend a screening of the movie (you do), text RISE to 55155.
