VIU Cowichan Movie Night – Girl Rising

November 26, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

VIU is pleased to host a screening of this amazing documentary as a part of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.

From Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins, Girl Rising spotlights the unforgettable stories of nine girls living in the developing world, striving beyond circumstance and overcoming nearly insurmountable odds to achieve their dreams. The narration talents of renowned actors and the moving words of prize-winning authors combine and give voice to the girls’ stories and this powerful truth: educating girls can transform families, communities, countries, and eventually the world.

Refreshments will be provided, and a discussion will be held afterwards for those who wish to participate.
