So you watched Girl Rising
So you watched Girl Rising and you are dealing with a mix of emotions. You are upset because girls like Suma are bonded in labor for their lives with no chance of attending school. You are saddened because girls like Yasmin are attacked -their childhood taken in the process. But you are also inspired by quiet and strong Senna's love of poetry, triumphant with leader Mariama when she was able to keep her radio show and when determined Wadley was permitted to stay in school.
We are all now personally invested in the stories of these girls and the millions like them around the world who just want an education and a chance to be their best selves.
