At Intel, we believe that education and opportunity should be available to all, regardless of gender. Change takes courage, and courage takes many forms. Courage starts with YOU.

Girl Rising is a global action campaign for girls' education. It started with a groundbreaking, inspirational film. Now it’s a movement to lift barriers to girls' education, drive change, and motivate leaders to take action. Bring Girl Rising to your community. Buy the DVD and organize a screening, a panel session, a poetry slam—whatever moves you to action. What counts is that we all do something. Purchase your copy on iTunes*, Amazon*, and girlrising.com.
