CIEE Amsterdam joined the global campaign for the 'Girl Rising' movement last week when we showed the movie in CREA, the local movie theater for the University of Amsterdam. It was very cool that our study center could participate in an event that had already taken place all over the world. On October 11 in celebration of International Day of the Girl, the movie was already shown at 2093 different locations all over the world. Dutch pragmatism required us to show it a couple of days later, but nonetheless, it was an inspiring movie! It tells the stories of nine girls who overcame tremendous hardships to pursue their dreams of education and a better life.

Before we started the movie, we invited one of the best companies in the CIEE Amsterdam Network in the area of girls rights: Women Win. Elena of Women Win gave  presentation about their work, including this inspiring video

The room in CREA was well-filled, if only all the people in the movie theater talk to two other people, we are working on spreading the message!
