In honor of International Day of the Girl Friday, a 13 year old Zandra Cunningham of Buffalo helped to spread awareness about the inhumane treatment of girls in other countries.

Cunningham hosted a film screening inside the Wisteria School in Buffalo of Girl Rising, a film that highlights the need for girls to be educated in countries where it is prohibited. Girl Rising is a worldwide grassroots movement and groups in cities across the world hosted viewing parties in honor of the International Day of the Girl.
