Travel the globe to meet nine unforgettable girls - striving beyond circumstance, pushing past limits. Their dreams, their voices, their incredible stories are captured in a film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world.

"Illuminating and ultimately hopeful, despite the horrible circumstances depicted, 'Girl Rising' stands as a testament to the power of information," - Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times
