No act happens in isolation; every act starts a chain reaction, a ripple effect. The ripple effect caused by educating girls is called the girl effect, and it makes the world a brighter place for everyone, yes, even boys.
Thank you to Sunny, Barbara, Kathleen, Kathy, and Janet for causing some ripples.
And thank you to my flashmobbers, who didn’t just dance to say thanks, but also to promote a showing of Girl Rising, creating their own ripples.
