“Girl Rising”

Asia Society New York recently held a partial screening of Girl Rising,  a groundbreaking film that spotlights the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change a girl—and the world. The film chronicles the stories of unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances. It captures their dreams, their voices, and their remarkable lives.

The film was followed by a panel discussion with the producer and special guests, including Holly Gordon, Executive Director of 10X10; Shabana Basij-Rasikh, Co-Founder and Managing Director of SOLA, School of Leadership Afghanistan; Su Balasubramanian, Program Officer of UN Foundation; and Zoe Timms, Executive Director of Women’s Education Project. Moderated by ABC News’ Emmy Award-winning journalist Juju Chang. Introductory remarks will be delivered by Tom Nagorski, Asia Society Executive Vice President.
