Video: The Girl Effect

February 11, 2009

I blogged about the "girl effect" back in September while I was attending the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative here in New York City. As I asked (rhetorically) at the time, why is the empowerment of girls and young women so important? This video, which has been around for a while, uses words and music in a really clever way to answer that question. Enjoy. (H/T Kathryn Pyle and See 3 Communications)
