    Last week, Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old Pakistani girl who survived being shot in the head for standing for educational freedom, debuted her memoir during International Day of the Girl, which got her on television nationally to spread her message.
    Keeping the dialogue going this week, Girls on the Run will present “Girl Rising,” a groundbreaking feature film that spotlights the stories of nine unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances. The film captures their dreams, their voices and their remarkable lives. It is also a movement dedicated to empowering and achieving educational equity for girls around the world.
    Girls on the Run has partnered with a team of students from the private Community School in Sun Valley to promote the free showing of the documentary “Girl Rising.” These students have been planning the event with the help of students from Wood River High School, Sage School and Silver Creek Alternative School.
    The community showing will take place on Monday, Oct. 21, at 6 p.m. in the Community School auditorium, in Sun Valley.
