Girl Rising

It is wonderful to see the demand for women’s empowerment not only be sustained but growing. For those of you who have seen the Half the Sky documentary, this film will further corroborate what we already know and lend us more insight into the obstacles women and girls around the world face and what it takes for them to achieve despite the odds against them.

For those who have not, your thoughts and perceptions concerning our world and how we view women’s rights and empowerment on a global scale will awaken. I am looking forward to seeing this film and I hope many in the greater Kansas City area are as well. Please share this with everyone you know so that we can guarentee a showing here and in your area.
