Girl Rising 5th Anniversary Edition


Girl Rising has exploded into a global movement and social media phenomenon. Since the original film came out, the film has unlocked resources for girls’ education and has reached millions of people. The Fifth Anniversary Edition commemorates the stories of nine incredible girls whose lives have been affected by the power of education. The updated film features new research on girl’s education, video updates on the girls, and videos from the Girl Rising movement featuring students, teachers, and community leaders taking action for girls’ education. Renowned actor and girls’ education advocate David Oyelowo narrates this Fifth Anniversary Edition.


  • “It’s difficult to fully express how wonderful “Girl Rising” has been for my students. It has
    allowed my students to enter the world with a meaningful understanding of obstacles that
    prevent vulnerable populations from accessing opportunity. It has also allowed them to
    reframe their understanding of the word ‘privilege’.”
    9th Grade Teacher, Georgia
  • “Girl Rising is an eye opening film and classroom experience. I can honestly say that after
    viewing the stories in the film, my students now realize just how fortunate they really are,
    and how much work we still need to do. It’s a lesson that I think will stay with my 5th
    graders for a long time. Thank you, Girl Rising!”
    5th Grade Teacher, Indiana
  • “Before Girl Rising, I was not really aware of the struggles and challenges that many girls
    face around the world in order to access education. The Girl Rising movement is part of
    my mission to be aware and always give back.”
    Student, New Jersey
  • “Let’s put a stop to this and educate all young girls!”
    Student, Indiana
