There is a group of people in the world that is more persecuted than any other, but it is not political or religious. Being born a girl means you are more likely to be subjected to violence, disease, poverty and disadvantage than any other group on the planet. I AM A GIRL showcases six girls on the brink of womanhood from diverse countries and cultures from around the world, dealing with the realities of what it means to grow up female today. Despite obstacles, these girls have found extraordinary ways to persevere. I AM A GIRL offers their stories of strength, hope, courage, resilience, and a refusal to be second best.
