But I will still watch it.
The Australian documentary, which is made possible by philantrophic donations, will show us the lives of 10 girls around the world to illustrate “the simple fact of being born female means you are more likely to be subjected to violence, disease, poverty and disadvantage than any other group on the planet.”
Did you know:
1. 62 million girls around the world do not go to school.
2. Every minute, a girl dies giving birth.
3. The majority of the world’s HIV sufferers under 25 are girls.
4. Women under age 20 experience half the sexual assaults in the world.
I didn’t know any of that.
“I Am A Girl” is heavy stuff, but important stuff too.
