Class Dismissed



This is a really great short documentary about a girl living in Swat, Pakistan, the day before the Taliban closes all schools for girls. It's only 15 minutes, so it's worth watching if you can find the time. It really opened up my eyes to the issues girls are facing on a global level, especially where education is concerned, and the girls' rallying is an awesome example of the types of feminism found all over the world.
