Mandi Ballard talks about the film "Girl Rising"
Mandi Ballard, a local attorney, talks about the film Girl Rising. Girl Rising is about 9 girls from 9 different countries and how they have overcome poverty, war, natural catastrophes, cultural prejudice and violence to pursue their dreams of education. The film pairs the girls with women writers from the same countries and a powerful dialogue and understanding of the culture emerges. Girl Rising is a documentary bringing attention to the 66 million young girls around the word who are not being educated and is being sponsored by groups and individuals throughout the country to bring attention to the problems. Here in Tampa, the film is going to be show on April 4 at 7:30 pm at the AMC Westshore Cinema and if enough are interested a second showing will be arranged for April 11.comments powered by Disqus
