About the film…
Girls make up almost a quarter of the world’s population yet face the greatest discrimination and disadvantage of any group in the world. In spite of these obstacles, girls have found extraordinary ways to persevere. From Cambodia to Papua New Guinea, Cameroon, Afghanistan, USA and Australia, ‘I Am A Girl’ follows six young women on the brink of womanhood and dealing with the realities of growing up female in the world today. Director Rebecca Barry provides audiences with their remarkable and heart-warming stories of resilience, bravery, humour, and a refusal to be second best.
Tickets cost $30 and are limited so go to TryBooking to secure your place. Funds raised from this event will go towards UN Women’s Economic Empowerment Campaign.
