“The documentary every mother, sister, daughter should see
as well as the men who love and support them”
- Entertainment Weekly


"Girl Rising" is a ground-breaking feature film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to transform societies. 

Released in 2013 by Academy Award-nominated director Richard Robbins, "Girls Rising" tells the stories of remarkable girls around the world, voiced by renowned actors such as Meryl Streep, Salma Hayek, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, and Alicia Keys.

IE invites you to be inspired by this powerful film and become more actively involved in helping girls around the world as a supporter, an advocate, a funder, or an impact investor.

Tickets are £15 with net proceeds donated to The Esther Benjamins Trust. The St. James's Place Foundation have generously agreed to match all funds received.

About The St. James's Place Foundation

The St. James's Place Foundation is a grant-making charity with a difference. Rather than utilising funds received from an endowment or an investment, funds are raised and donated by the St. James's Place community. Since 1999, after gaining shareholder permission, the Company have matched all funds raised or donated, pound for pound. Since its inception in 1992, our community has raised and distributed almost £34 million to good causes operating in the UK and abroad. Over 85% of our community also make a regular monthly donation to the Foundation and, in 2013, in excess of £4.5 million was raised. We very much appreciate your continued support. The Foundation supports hundreds of charities under the following themes: · Cherishing the Children · Combating Cancer · Supporting Hospices


About "Girl Rising"

"Girl Rising" is a groundbreaking feature film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to transform societies. The film, released in 2013 from academy award-nominated Director Richard Robbins and Executive Producer Holly Gordon, presents the stories of remarkable girls around the world, told by celebrated writers and voiced by renowned actors, featuring Salma Hayek, Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett and Alicia Keys. We know that educating girls is the smartest investment of our time. When girls are educated, communities thrive and economies grow. Yet 62 million girls are missing from classrooms worldwide, and tremendous opportunities are lost. Join the "Girl Rising" community and become a champion for girls' education. Use your voice and talent to help us to create a meaningful change: spread the message, raise funds, and rally your community to advocate for policies supporting girl's education. Now is the time. Educate Girls, Change the World
