#TimeToRise: A new campaign for gender equality
Need a good dose of empowerment today? We’ve got just the thing. Girl Up, a United Nations foundation devoted to inspiring girls to change the world, has launched a new campaign called “Time to Rise.” It aims to encourage girls, just like you, to rise up in order to “create a world where every girl is equal.”
The powerful campaign video features actress, model and activist, Corinne Foxx, as well as appearances by TV personality Nigel Barker and his daughter Jasmine. Supporters of Girl Up follow Corinne in reciting William Ernest Henley’s poem, “Invictus.” This defiant act is reason enough for girls around the world to want to rise up and fight for equality. The poem ends with everybody looking straight into the camera as Corinne proclaims the final line “I am the captain of my soul.”
This video gave us some major #girlpower vibes, and we hope it does the same for you. For more info, or to join the movement click HERE.
