A range of societal, physical and cultural norms make it all the more likely that girls will grow up uneducated, underemployed, married early, among other things, as compared to boys.
Girl Rising uses the power of storytelling, through film and other media, to change the way people think about and value girls and girls’ education. They launch high profile campaigns to shine a spotlight on the issues girls face and to catalyze change by inspiring people to do their part to dismantle the barriers holding girls back.
Educated girls stand up for their rights, marry and have children later, educate their own children, and their families and communities thrive.
Removing barriers such as early marriage, gender-based violence, domestic slavery and sex trafficking means not only a better life for girls, but a safer, healthier and more prosperous world for all.
To date, Girl Rising’s campaigns have raised awareness and inspired millions of people on a global scale - from students to government officials - to take action and lead efforts to change attitudes and behaviors in their own communities.
