In honour of #IWD2014 we present the story of girls battling for the right to become educated women and reach their full potential in the film Girls with Books: A New Global Power.International Women's Day, 8 March, is when the world recognises women, their achievements and the importance of standing up for their rights.

Today's girls will be the women of tomorrow: and if a girl is educated, her value to her family, her community and their economic well-being is proven to increase.  One extra year in school alone will increase a woman's lifetime income by at least 10%.

One world at peace with education for all,
May it be so,
Merry ME
