Stories to ignite change

Girl Rising uses the power of storytelling to change the way the world values girls and their education.

The Power of Girls

There are millions of girls around the world who are kept out of school, married as children, abused, trafficked and discriminated against. Simply because they are girls.

Yet when girls are valued and educated they become women who are healthier, have fewer children, earn more, stand up for their rights and educate their sons and daughters equally. Families thrive. Communities, nations and the world are healthier, safer, and more prosperous. It’s the best investment we can make.

We use our stories to ignite and fuel social movements. Our stories inform, engage and inspire the public to take action for girls and gender equality.
