Room to Read, an organisation that works in the sector of education and gender equality,  announced a partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery for the premier of She Creates Change, an animation and live-action project to promote gender equality through the stories of young women around the world.

In celebration of International Women’s Day, the film series will premiere on March 8, 15 and 22 in Asia. Presented in a series of six animated shorts with an accompanying live-action mini-documentary, She Creates Change features the narrative of six courageous young women from historically low-income communities in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and Vietnam. Episodes portray how each girl confronts challenges unique to her life- such as harassment, food scarcity or early marriage- by advocating for herself and her future.

“Room to Read’s partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery accelerates the goal of She Creates Change to reach all 432 million adolescent girls in the world with inspiring and informative content.,” said Dr. Geetha Murali, CEO of Room to Read. “As girls see other young women, who face challenges similar to their own, use their skills and knowledge to shape their future, they too will discover avenues to harness their power and potential.”

Murali further said She Creates Change will make its debut to not just inspire young girls to pursue their dreams and stand up for their rights, but also to encourage young boys and men to support the women and girls in their lives. 

“The project’s launch is a significant step towards Room to Read’s goal of reaching adolescent girls with an empowering and informative story,” said Pushkar Lal Shrestha, Country Director of Room to Read in Nepal.

She Creates Change has been recognised as an official selection of Tribeca Festival (Tribeca X Award), Manchester Animation Festival (Best Short Film for Children), London Short Film Festival and the British Animation Awards (2024 Audience Award). The series will premiere as a feature-length film as an official selection of the SXSW EDU Film Program on March 5, 2024.

The release of She Creates Change aligns with the launch of Room to Read’s flagship fundraising campaign, You Create Change, to raise $10 million to support girls’ education and gender equality through Room to Read’s programs.
