Join FWSF and Charles Schwab & Co. for an inspirational and thought provoking evening around the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to improve the life of a girl — and the world. From Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins comes GIRLRISING - an innovative new feature film which tells the stories of nine extraordinary girls from nine countries who overcame incredible odds to get an education. Renowned actors Meryl Streep, Ann Hathaway, Liam Neeson, Cate Blanchett, and Selena Gomez contribute voice performances to the Film.

Like the 65 million girls around the world who dream of going to school, what the girls want most is to be students: to learn. And now, by sharing their personal journeys, they have become teachers. Watch GIRLRISING and you will see: One girl with courage is a revolution.

Family and friends are welcome. Member/non-member prices apply.

Schwab employees and family members may attend for free by emailing
