Girls with Books: A New Global Power

International Women’s Day, 8 March, is when the world recognises women, their achievements and the importance of standing up for their rights.

In honour of #IWD2014 we present the story of girls battling for the right to become educated women and reach their full potential in the film Girls with Books: A New Global Power.

Click to view the film "A new Global Power: Girls with Books"

Today’s girls will be the women of tomorrow: and if a girl is educated, her value to her family, her community and their economic well-being is proven to increase.  One extra year in school alone will increase a woman’s lifetime income by at least 10%.

Please take a moment to watch the video and share it with your family and friends on Twitter or Facebook.

And on 12 March we will host a Google Hangout to discuss Girls with Books and why they are the New Global Power – tune in at 11AM EST/4PM GMT and join A World at School and girls’ education advocates from around the world.
