Women You Should Know is SO EXCITED to be captaining a New York City screening of the highly anticipated feature film Girl Rising, on the eve of International Women’s Day.

From Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins, Girl Rising is a film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change a girl and the world. It features voice performances contributed by Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Freida Pinto, Alicia Keys, and other A-list stars.

Read on to find out how you can join us on March 7 for what will be an incredibly inspiring night!

Girl Rising journeys around the globe to tell the stories of unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances like Sokha, an orphan who rises from the dumps of Cambodia to become a star student and an accomplished dancer; Suma, who composes music to help her endure forced servitude in Nepal and today crusades to free others; and Ruksana, an Indian “pavement-dweller” whose father sacrifices his own basic needs for his daughter’s dreams.

We guarantee that you will be moved… you will be inspired.

A portion of Girl Rising ticket sales will help fund girls’ programs, so seeing the film literally makes an impact on girls’ lives. YOU IN?

    So glad you organized this screening of “Girl Rising” Cynthia, Jen and Tal! Inspirational to the max. The friend I brought to the screening also was totally inspired and we are talking about what we can do next to further the message and work of 10×10 and other organizations that work to educate girls around the world. Kudos and so proud you are my friends.

    What an inspirational movie! It reinforces how we, in the Western world, take for granted educating girls, while in emerging societies it is still just a privilege, not a “right.” I’m so happy to have been able to attend this event, despite the awful weather. Thank you WYSK, for giving us this well-organized event at a beautiful venue. You did an awesome job.
