Women of the World: Girl Connected

Five teenage girls from five countries show us how rewarding it can be to swim against the tide. In Bangladesh, Peru, Jordan, India and Kenya, each one of the five young women are an inspiration to others because they decided to follow their hearts and realize their dreams. In this documentary, each protagonist is an inspiration to her peers and each sparks them into action in order to transform their own lives. We witness their day-to-day activities and learn about what encouraged them to challenge existing notions of gender inequality.
