Authors Night in Barranco
Changing the World, One Girl at a Time
Marie spoke to us about the role of girls' education in development and on her experience as part of the groundbreaking film project "Girl Rising" by Oscar-nominated director Richard Robbins.
The special treat that evening was a special showing of the Peru portion of the film which had recently wowed audiences at the Sundance Film Festival.
The film shows the inspiring stories of 10 girls from 10 countries and is narrated by Liam Neeson, Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Salma Hayak among others.
