Her Campus Tufts Screens Girl Rising


On April 24th Her Campus Tufts was proud to screen a new documentary on the global importance of educating girls. The documentary, Girl Rising, told the real life stories of 9 girls around the world and the amazing impact that education has had on their lives. Their stories are narrated by celebs including: Meryl Streep, Selena Gomez, Kerry Washington, Cate Blanchett, Priyanka Chopra, Anne Hathaway, Salma Hayek, Alicia Keys, Chloë Moretz, Liam Neeson, and Frieda Pinto. It was a touching documentary that Her Campus Tufts was happy we exposed the Tufts University community to.

Girl Rising has had an unusual journey and eager viewers cannot always find the documentary screening at their local theater. The film was created by 10×10. 10×10 is a global action campaign for girls’ education. Centered by the new feature film, Girl Rising, 10×10 uses the power of storytelling and the leverage of strategic partnerships to deliver a simple, critical truth: Educate Girls and you will Change the World, and in doing so have flawlessly interwoven advocacy and filmmaking into a new progressive framework. To view the film, people have the opportunity to host their own screenings or to request it on Gathr, a new social tool where viewers can request movies they want to see in order to get them shown at their local theaters.
