Girl Rising is an extremely inspiring documentary that follows the lives and looks back on the life changing struggles of several girls from all around the world. The difficulties that these girls have had to face can be hard to imagine but this documentary sheds light and knowledge on the silent battles being fought and won. Resilient and outstanding girls and young women everywhere are fighting for basic rights (such as primary school education) and a better quality of life. Girl rising does an amazing job of highlighting just a few of these girls out of millions. It brings issues into a new perspective and truly has the power to change you and awaken passion inside of you. For me, it made me even more passionate about advocating women's rights and it stressed the importance of education. Education for girls is the key to change.
This film brought tears to my eyes and as it ended I took a moment in my head to thank the people who thought of the idea and took the initiation to bring it to life. This film is a must see for all of you Latinitas out there! Check out the official trailer on YouTube
