There is a group of people in the world today who are more persecuted than anyone else, but they are not political or religious activists. They are girls.
Being born a girl means you are more likely to be subjected to violence, disease, poverty and disadvantage than any other group on the planet. As each girl moves closer to coming of age, ‘I Am A Girl’, a feature length documentary, reveals what it means to grow up female in the 21st century.
Join the Amnesty International NSW Women’s Network this International Day of the Girl Child for a screening of ‘I Am A Girl’.
As a day on earth transpires from dawn to dusk and into the night, we meet Manu, Kimsey, Aziza, Habiba, Breani, and Katie, and through them explore the unique challenges girls face around the world. As they come of age, we see remarkable heart-warming stories of resilience, bravery and humour.
Proceeds from the event support the important work of Amnesty International promoting and defending human rights in Australia and around the world.
