The CW Joins the White House to Let Girls Learn
The CW Network is teaming up with the White House and the Peace Corps in support of Let Girls Learn, a U.S. government-wide initiative launched earlier this year by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. The initiative brings attention to the more than 62 million adolescent girls around the world who are denied access to education, the chance to go to school and stay in school.
The CW’s critically acclaimed sophomore hit Jane the Virgin will feature Let Girls Learn in its Monday, November 16, episode, and the show's award-winning star, Gina Rodriguez, stars in a supporting PSA titled "62 Million Girls" that will run across The CW’s digital and social platforms.
"We are honored to partner with the White House and the Peace Corps to support Let Girls Learn, an initiative with the power to change millions of lives across the globe," said Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW in the announcement. "It is so exciting that we have the opportunity to really create positive social impact, and we know that Jane The Virgin can raise awareness about this important issue in a fun and informative way."
"I am absolutely thrilled that The CW Network, CBS Television Studios and their star, Gina Rodriguez, are shining a spotlight on the 62 million girls worldwide who are out of school and doing their part to help give those girls the education they need and deserve," added First Lady Michelle Obama.
Be sure to tune in Monday night at 9 p.m. ET to see Jane the Virgin.
