As part of St. Margaret's House' cultural programme which will celebrate women throughout March, Chapel Cinema will be screening the incredible documentary: Girl Rising.
In 2008, a team of former ABC journalists set out to answer the question: How do you end global poverty? The powerful truth they uncovered was that educating girls is the single best way to achieve that goal. Yet, millions of girls are missing from classrooms, facing barriers that boys don't: early marriage, sex trafficking, domestic slavery and gender-based violence.
The film was released in 2013 and showcases girls from around the world affected by the power of education – or lack thereof.
This screening will start at 2pm
