On Nov. 8, The Grauer School’s club, Girls Rising, will be hosting a screening of their namesake film, Girl Rising, a documentary that shines the spotlight on the transformative power of girls’ education. Girl Rising is a groundbreaking feature film that spotlights the stories of nine unforgettable girls born in unforgiving circumstances. The film captures their dreams, their voices and their remarkable lives.

“Equality is the future. The community has to understand what a girl has to go through to make it in the world,” said student leader Jada Henry, emphasizing the global aspects of these issues of equality.

The event will have authentic food by East African Cuisine, by a female refugee of the Somali Civil War, a market of microfinanced handicraft goods, and desserts sold by Grauer School students from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Proceeds will benefit women’s charitable foundations. The film will begin at 6:30 p.m. in The Grauer School’s Great Hall. This film recommended for children 12 years and up.
