On May 13th in Los Angeles, GWEN (Global Women's Empowerment Network) in partnership with the Million Mamas Movement will screen GIRL RISING.

GIRL RISING, a powerful and innovative new feature film that tells the stories of nine girls from around the world who face – and overcome – unbelievable obstacles on the path toward getting an education. Each girl’s story was written by an author and is narrated by a cast of great actresses, including Meryl Streep, Kerry Washington, Anne Hathaway, Salma Hayek, Alicia Keys, and others.

The film is the centerpiece of 10×10, a global campaign to educate and empower girls.

The evening includes a red carpet, celebrities, performances by American Idol Michelle Delamor, singer/songwriter Max Schneider and Lizzie Sider the teen singer songwriter who has been selected by CMA as an “Artist to Watch” in 2013. Guests will also receive a gift and an opportunity to attend a VIP reception.

A perfect follow-up to Mother’s Day, GWEN is encouraging mothers and daughters to attend or is asking all attendees to bring a girl to share in the film’s enlightening message.
