What happens when you educate a girl? Studies show, educated girls improve the lives of their families, their communities and even their countries.
CNN Films’ “Girl Rising” documents extraordinary girls and the power of education to change the world. Watch the CNN premiere this Sunday, June 16th at 9pm ET.
Mystical Raven: This item was shared with me by a friend on Facebook. I hope everyone will take the time this Sunday to tune in and watch this documentary. In many countries around the world women are treated as second-class citizens and girls are denied the right to an education.

The major patriarchal religions of the modern world (Christianity, Judaism and Islam) have lost sight of what the pagan religions of old realized full well – that God manifests in 2 polarities (male and female, god and goddess, positive and negative) equally.
