Girl Rising: Screening and Discussion

Description

From Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins, Girl Rising journeys around the globe to witness the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. Viewers get to know nine unforgettable girls living in the developing world: ordinary girls who confront tremendous challenges and overcome nearly impossible odds to pursue their dreams. Prize-winning authors put the girls’ remarkable stories into words, and renowned actors give them voice. 

Join the Clayman Institute for Gender Research and the Stanford Women's Community Center on Wednesday, March 5th, for a screening of this moving documentary in celebration of International Women's Week. A discussion of the film will follow, moderated by Alison Crossley, a postdoctoral fellow at the Clayman Institute. Dinner will be provided. For more information, click here
