Girl Rising Film Screening Monday, November 3rd, 4pm, SUB Ballroom

Join the Women's and Gender Studies Department on Monday, November 3rd, at 4pm in the Henry Student Center Ballroom for a screening of the documentary Girl Rising. The film showcases the lives of nine girls from different parts of the world who face injustices such as arranged marriages and child slavery. Despite these obstacles, each girl’s story offers hope and inspiration. By getting an education, they are able to break barriers and create change. After the screening we will provide the audience with information about how they too can help empower girls through education.  If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Jennifer Thomas, Director of the Women's and Gender Studies Department, at jennifer.thomas@wilkes.edu.  We look forward to seeing you there!
