Girl Rising

Girl Rising Information

Girl Rising is a global movement for girls' education, based primarily around its feature film Girl Rising.

About the Film

Girl Rising (2013) was produced by Tom Yellin and Holly Gordon at The Documentary Group in partnership with Paul G. Allen and Jody Allen of Vulcan Productions.

The film was directed by Academy Award nominee Richard E. Robbins and features narration by Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, Selena Gomez, Liam Neeson, Priyanka Chopra, ChloŽ Moretz, Freida Pinto, Salma Hayek, Meryl Streep, Alicia Keys, and Kerry Washington.

Girl Rising tells the stories of nine girls from nine different countries (Sierra Leone, Haiti, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Peru, Egypt, Nepal, India, and Cambodia). Each of the nine girls featured in the film had her story written by a writer from the same country as she, and all of their stories reflect their struggles and triumphs to overcome societal or cultural barriers to go to school.


Journalists of the Documentary Group first founded Girl Rising as an organization and campaign called 10x10. Originally, the film team hoped to profile ten girls from ten countries, but ended up telling only nine stories due to budget and time restraints.

Partner Organizations

Girl Rising has partnered with the following NGO's to create impact in global communities:

A New Day Cambodia, Plan International, Room to Read, CARE, Partners in Health, World Vision, Girl Up
