We have never had to have a discussion in this house about which kid goes to school based on their gender.
Yesterday, I caught up on some blogs, including Bread & Chocolate, where Kate posted THIS blog piece.
By watching a 12 minute streaming video I learned very quickly girls in many other parts of the world don't have a choice. Education is NOT for the girls; they are sold in slavery, they are kidnapped for human trafficking and a myriad of other god awful things, rather than be educated.
Girl Rising is a film, a movement and tremendous hope for the future.
THIS 12 minute clip, Suma's Story - The Nepal Chapter, begs you to watch it. We CAN make a difference. We CAN educate our own kids to these injustices. By watching this short film - YOU help.
