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 to join us – no matter your gender, your age or your geography – and together we can work for change and in pursuit of a better world for all.
