10x10 presents Girl Rising : the true stories of real girls striving beyond circumstance.
- The countries. It’s true around the world: The obstacles that girls face are tougher, the hurdles higher. Early marriage, trafficking, gender-based violence — to name but a few. But in every country 10x10 visited, the filmmakers met girls fighting and succeeding against impossible odds.
- The writers. Compelling stories call for dynamic storytellers. 10x10 matched each girl with a world-renowned writer from her country — women whose passion and empathy informed the screenplay, relating stories unique to each girl, yet universal in their themes. Through the words of the writers, the voices of the girls ring out.
- The A-List actresses. Girl Rising features high-impact narration by world-class stars like Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Alicia Keys, Kerry Washington, and Selena Gomez. Their voice performances bring the stories to life. And, most importantly...
- The girls. You will meet Yasmin, who becomes a superhero to endure a traumatic experience in Egypt; Sokha who rose like a phoenix from the dumps of Cambodia; Ruksana, who sleeps on the streets of Kolkata but never misses school; and others with stories just as powerful…
