Room to Read Shares ‘She Creates Change’ Trailer for ‘International Day of the Girl’

The global nonprofit’s 6-episode live-action/animated film series promotes gender equality using impactful vignettes to tell stories of young women worldwide while inspiring them to confront inequality and create change. 

In celebration of last week’s International Day of the Girl (October 11), global education nonprofit Room to Read released the official full-length trailer for its six-episode miniseries She Creates Change, the first nonprofit-led animation and live-action film project to promote gender equality through the stories of young women worldwide.

She Creates Change features the stories of six courageous young women who have overcome challenges to create better lives for themselves. The film series, comprised of six animated shorts accompanied by live-action mini-documentaries, aims to inspire girls worldwide to use their voices, confront inequality, and create change.  

To produce the film series, award-winning Nexus Studios curated a team of diverse women directors and artists from around the world with distinct visual styles, including Brenda Chapman (Brave), Jill Culton (Abominable), Freida Pinto (Mr. Malcolm’s List), and Charithra Chandran (Bridgerton).

The multimedia initiative also includes books and audio stories, and boldly aims to reach all 432 million adolescent girls (ages 12-18) in the world with content and educational curriculum that supports them in creating change in their lives and communities.

She Creates Change will be available in dozens of languages and distributed throughout the world through Room to Read programs and in partnership with community organizations and governments. Curriculum packages that align with the stories presented, based on Room to Read’s comprehensive seven-year Girls’ Education Program curriculum, will be provided online, through broadcast media and in-person programming.
