    4. A lot of stories of girls around the world being strong and amazing in seeking education in places where intense poverty, incredibly young child marriages and outright violence seek to prevent girls from learning and growing.It makes a LOT of references to the material from the Girls Rising film though so readers who haven t seen the film will be missing quite a few of these.

    8. Girl Rising is a film that follows the stories of girls throughout the world who rise above their harsh circumstances and give back The original film brought in a diverse range of authors to help each girl tell her story This book goes deeper, diving into stories of girls who didn t appear in the final film, but also further exploring some of the girls who are in the film It s eye opening, if a little broad and scatter shot I think it s valuable to hear stories from around the world, but it star [...]

    11. I heard about the book and movie at the same time, so we watched the movie, then I read the book Both are good, yet a bit slow to start The book at first seemed very repetitive from the movie, but it does include stories, as well as updates on what has happened since the film.I think this is a great book for making us aware of our privilege to have access to free education as well as adequate housing, food, water, electricity, etc But it s also very empowering, and hopefully can excite people t [...]

    17. This is a nice introduction to women s issues and education around the world It tells some stories of girls seeking an education and what prevents them from doing so However, I would have liked to have it go in depth of the issues, rather than just focus on the surface level Overall, this would be a great book for schools as a good overview of educational issues for women around the world.

    18. This YA read will open your eyes to the struggles and challenges that face girls around the world as they strive to fulfill their dreams and create better lives for themselves and their families It s hard not be deeply impacted by these stories, and they push us to examine our own prejudices, stereotypes, and the roles we play raising the next generation of women I highly suggest this book as a catalyst for change, both for high school students, as well as adults.

    19. Great photos and really amazing stories I wish there had been a little bit of a mention that some of these issues affect girls in the developed world as well as nations dealing with war and famine, but overall it was full of fascinating snapshots of young women Girls are so amazing, friends.
