Girl Rising




WHAT IS 10x10?

A Film + Campaign
10x10 is a feature film, Girl Rising, and a social action campaign, created and launched by an award-winning team of former ABC News journalists in association with The Documentary Group and Paul Allen's Vulcan Productions. We use the power of storytelling and the leverage of strategic partnerships to deliver a single message: educating girls in developing nations will change the world.


A Groundbreaking Film
10x10's feature film, Girl Rising, is a groundbreaking film, directed by Academy Award nominee Richard Robbins, which tells the stories of 9 extraordinary girls from 9 countries, written by 9 celebrated writers and narrated by 9 renowned actresses, including Meryl Streep, Kerry Washington, Alicia Keys, and Selena Gomez


A Global Campaign
10x10 is a campaign to reach global audiences and inspire individuals to take action for girls. Stories about the power of educating girls are told every day through photos, videos, blogs, books, and sometimes in 140 characters or less.


A New Paradigm
10x10 is creating a new paradigm in social-issue filmmaking by bringing together production and advocacy right from the get-go. 10x10 partners with forward-thinking nonprofits, celebrities, policy leaders, corporations and concerned citizens like you to build a global movement to demand equal opportunity for girls.
