Occasionally, the Omens Blog finds a story about which one need not be cynical. This one goes straight to the heart of gender issues worldwide. I love the movie title: Girl Rising.
While women’s schooling has been demonstrably related to child survival and other childhood outcomes beneficial to children in the developing world, the “cultural pathways” that underline these statistical connections have not been fully explored. Now, there is a very touching yet powerful documentary film, Girl Rising, which raises our awareness of this universal truth – by educating a girl, you can actually change the world.
