Zonta's Day of Film 2013 featured “Girl Rising,” a new feature film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world.
From Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins, the film journeys around the globe to spotlight nine unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances as they fight to realize their dreams.
Each Girl Rising story is written by a renowned writer from the girl’s native country, and is narrated by a celebrated actress, including Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Salma Hayek, and Cate Blanchett. The film features original music from Academy Award-winner Rachel Portman, in collaboration with Hans Zimmer.

The Zonta International Foundation provides funding of more than $1 million each year for programs and projects that benefit thousands of women around the world, including projects that seek to reduce the incidence of violence against women and girls. For more information, click here.
