Event Details

Join CIEE in celebrating International Day of the Girl, a day dedicated to recognizing the unique challenges girls face around the world, by joining us for our free screening of the groundbreaking film Girl Rising.

 

Girl Rising tells the stories of nine courageous girls who have overcome tremendous hardships—gender violence, early marriage, trafficking, bonded labor, and gender discrimination—to pursue their dreams of education and a better life. From Afghanistan to Haiti, Ethiopia to India, Nepal to Peru, Girl Rising is the story of perseverance, grit, determination, and positive social change. It offers a simple, yet powerful, message: educate girls and you will change the world.

 

This free public screening is proudly presented by CIEE, the world leader in international education and exchange.

 

CIEE, headquartered in downtown Portland, has partnered with the Girl Rising movement to sponsor this and hundreds of other screenings of the film in 40 countries around the world. Our goal: to spread the word about the importance of eliminating the barriers to education for girls.
