We celebrated International Day of the Girl 2016 by producing We Will Rise: Michelle Obama’s Mission to Educate Girls Around the World, a CNN film about the power of girls’ education.

Journey with global leaders and activists - including First Lady Michelle Obama, actors Meryl Streep and Freida Pinto, and CNN journalist Isha Sesay - to meet a group of girls from Liberia and Morocco who have overcome immense barriers to education.

For us at Girl Rising, this film represents another opportunity to share the voices of remarkable girls, which still too often go unheard.

Change starts with conversation.

Why now?

We are so proud that millions of people around the world have seen and shared the powerful Girl Rising stories. But there are still so many other stories that need to be told – and heard – because access to education for girls continues to lag.

So we call for everyone – no matter your gender, your age or your geography – to join us and work for change in pursuit of a better world for all. It’s time to let girls learn.
