Why now?

Millions of people around the world experienced and shared the power of Girl Rising stories. But still, many stories go untold. And, despite improvements, access to and the quality of educational opportunities continues to lag, especially for girls. We continue to shout loudly that we need everyone - no matter your gender or geography - if we’re going to create widespread change.
