"I Am My Own Master Now."

I spent much of this afternoon experiencing wave after wave of emotion, tearing up at times, curling my fists in anger and disbelief at others, and smiling with admiration for the young women featured in the documentary Girl Rising. Watching this film was such a powerful experience.
I'm looking forward to discussing it further with my students tomorrow, on International Women's Day. 


  1. My word. Even the trailer stopped my heart at times. Where/when is this playing?

  2. I'm not sure where it's playing. There was a special showing of it on campus this week. I'm sure it will be widely available soon. It's wonderful!

  3. Thanks for the tip off Jill, this looks like a moving film.
