I Am A Girl
In the world today, girls are more persecuted than anyone else. Being born a girl means you are more likely to be subjected to violence, disease, poverty and disadvantage than any other group on Earth. This video profiles girls from Cambodia, Afghanistan, New York City, Australia, Cameroon and Papua New Guinea to underscore the need for education for young girls. The film reveals what it means to grow up female in the 21st century with resilience, bravery and hope.
