Around the world, millions of girls face barriers to education that boys do not. And yet, when you educate a girl you can break cycles of poverty in just one generation.
In commemoration of the 180th anniversary of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, we are screening Girl Rising, a feature film, narrated by Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Selena Gomez and others, that tells the stories of nine incredible girls across the globe. Using the power of storytelling and film, we will spread the message that investing in girls benefits everyone.
Join us this coming Monday, Feb. 17, for a free screening of the film. Two showings: 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., in Knott Auditorium. RSVP at ndm.edu/GirlRising.
