“Girl Rising”

As part of International Day of the Girl events this month, EWU Libraries and EWU Women’s and Gender Studies will co-host a showing of the movie, an innovative new feature film about the power of education to change a girl - and the world. The nine extraordinary girls from nine countries in the film are in school, demonstrate powerful energy with their enthusiasm, spirit, and sheer joy. The pride they take - in their uniforms, in their schools, in their studies - is infectious, and you won’t be able to resist the rhythm of their feet as they walk to school and march into a better future. Following will be a panel discussion with Global Washington members about the inspiring work done through Washington State organizations, academic institutions, and businesses to promote the equality of women and girls worldwide.
