At Girl Rising, we believe passionately in the persuasive power of a great and well-told story; it can change the way we see the world and our place in it. We believe the story of girls is an exciting story and needs to be told. And we believe that powerful storytelling ignites action.

Our most forceful and eloquent storytelling tool to date is our critically acclaimed feature film. Narrated by Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Alicia Keys, Freida Pinto and others, it spotlights nine unforgettable girls living in the developing world: ordinary girls who battle nearly impossible odds to achieve their dreams.

The film paves the way for new storytelling opportunities that will catalyze the conversation and inspire action about girls’ education around the world. From short films to theatrical pieces to novels - we’re constantly exploring new ways to bring girls’ stories to a wide audience.
