I’ll admit I’m a bit sensitive to news that impacts the future of the female gender. While that’s true year-round, it’s especially true in the spring of each year when our Vagina Monologues troupe prepares for their annual performances. That could well be why the film, Girl Rising, just got my attention. If you haven’t already heard about it, I’d like to acquaint you with it. Visit the local screening site for more information. It is about “. . . the power of education to change a girl – and the world.” The girls in the film “. . . are each unique, but the obstacles they faced are ubiquitous. Like the 66 million girls around the world who dream of going to school, what Sokha, Suma, Ruksana and the rest want most is to be students: to learn. And now, by sharing their personal journeys, they have become teachers. Watch Girl Rising, and you will see: One girl with courage is a revolution.”
