Readers’ Corner: Girl Rising

This weeks featured booklist is inspired by the Girl Rising campaign and focuses on young girls fighting to change their world.

Girl Rising, a 2013 documentary film that follows nine women from different countries as they struggle to overcome societal and cultural barriers, sparked a global movement for girls education and empowerment. The movement uses true storytelling to inspire young girls to create different futures with education, bringing people together to help change the way in which girls are valued across the globe.

The Girl Rising booklist is full of real-world and fictional characters who are fighting to do the same by ending sexism, rape culture, and other social issues females of all ages face.
