Girl Rising: Changing the World One Girl at a Time

Amazon.com Rating:

Worldwide, over 62 million girls are not in school. But one girl with courage is a revolution. Girl Rising, a global campaign for girls' education, created a film that chronicled the stories of nine girls in the developing world, allowing viewers the opportunity to witness how education can break the cycle of poverty.

Now, award-winning author Tanya Lee Stone deftly uses new research to illuminate the dramatic facts behind the film, focusing both on the girls captured on camera and many others. She examines barriers to education in depth -- early child marriage and childbearing, slavery, sexual trafficking, gender discrimination, and poverty -- and shows how removing these barriers means not only a better life for girls, but safer, healthier, and more prosperous communities.

With full-color photos from the film, infographics, and a compelling narrative, Girl Rising will inspire readers of all ages to join together in a growing movement to help change the world.

Description

"This volume is also a call to arms, detailing not just why girls are prevented from going to school but also why it is critically important to their countries and the global economy that they be allowed to do so....Impressive back matter adds further heft, including an informative author's note explaining how Stone verified and supplemented the research of the film crews, an extensive bibliography, and complete source notes." -- Eileen Makoff, School Library Journal
