| Great message, poor documentary
The thesis of this documentary is that the solution for the more than six million women in third world countries and otherwise impoverished regions who are oppressed, abused and violated is education. This documentary follows the story of seven women from Sierra Leone, India, Afghanistan, Haiti, Ethiopia, Cambodia, Nepal and Egypt. It shows how each of these women bettered themselves and their lives through education, albeit gaining such an education was an extreme struggle.

I have nothing against the message of the documentary. It has started a "girl rising" movement for global education of women, and that's fantastic. I just didn't find the documentary itself very entertaining. They tried to use a variety of cinematographic techniques, but it simply failed to entertain me. It is worth watching for the eye-opening statistics, but you may feel like your history teacher didn't feel like teaching today and popped in a video.
