Movie Night: Girl Rising hosted by SWE

SWE is holding a movie night on Friday, March 29 in E1 auditorium at 6:30 pm.

Girl Rising is a feature film by Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins that spotlights unforgettable young women born into unforgiving circumstances.

Girls like Suma – who wrote songs to help her endure forced servitude in Nepal and now crusades to free others – will join other young storytellers from Peru, Haiti, Egypt, Sierra Leon, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, India, Nepal, and Cambodia.

Providing more power to production is narration by Anne Hathaway, Kerry Washington, Meryl Streep, Salma Hayek, Cate Blanchett, Selena Gomez, Priyanka Chopra, Alicia Keys, Chloe Moretz, Freida Pinto, and Liam Neeson.

Girl Rising will air on CNN Films in early summer but you can be one of the first to watch this meaningful film about the enormous benefits of educating girls.
