Girl Rising is well worth seeing for all audiences, young and old, and it does an outstanding job of showing how critical the support for girls' educational opportunities is to all of us.

This movie is so timely and even more meaningful if you check out the Campaign that goes with it - see 10x10act.org or Girl Rising on facebook.

This movie is a must-see for women everywhere! I would love to see it shown in schools nationwide. Beautifully shot and imaginatively presented, the heart wrenching stories about girls in third world countries and what they have to do to get educations much less survive without being raped and married off as children, should be experienced by every girl who takes her freedoms and education in the United States for granted. See it!

This movie was so tastefully done, with its message to the audience loud and clear. Most appealing was that it was highly successful without the need for graphic details about the horriffic and inhumane treatment of girls and women in many of third world countries. I brought my 10 year old granddaughter with me to see the movie, as it was rated PG13. I wondered what, if anything, she would take with her from seeing Girl Rising. Before we even left the theater, she expressed so effervescently her gratitude for freedom, and independence, and the right and privilege to a "free" education. That response, by itself, made our trip to this movie unforgetable.

I think every young girl in America should view this film. I think it would help place value on the importance of education and how precious a gift it is here in the U.S.
