Attending this event counts towards Sophomore Honors.

"Girl Rising" is a film about 9 girls from different developing countries who have overcome obstacles in their journey towards education. Asha for Education, a nonprofit organization that works towards improving the education of children in countries like India, is proud to host a screening of this film. We, the board members of Asha, hope to raise awareness on the gender inequalities that still exist throughout the world and how we can help empower girls through education. The film screening will be followed by a discussion with student panelists who have depicted interest in these social issues. Join us in watching an incredible film, engaging in powerful discussion, and ultimately taking one step forward towards the empowerment of girls around the world.
