CENCOM Screening: Girl Rising
Monday, November 18, 2013 | 5:30 - 9:30 p.m.
This innovative feature tells the stories of nine remarkable girls who change their destinies through education, from a "pavement-dweller" in India, to a composer in Nepal whose music helps her endure forced servitude. Each girl's story is told by a writer from her native country, and A-list actors, including Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Liam Neeson, Cate Blanchett, and Selena Gomez contribute voice performances. By sharing their personal journeys, these girls prove that “One girl with courage is a revolution."
