From victim to activist

Once labeled "The World’s Ugliest Woman," Lizzie Velasquez now inspires millions of people to embrace who they are and stand up to bullying. This captivating documentary chronicles Lizzie’s life from cyberbullying victim to anti-bullying activist—from being born with a rare disease that prevents her from gaining weight, to being bullied as a child and discovering a cruel video mocking her on YouTube, to lobbying on Capitol Hill in pursuit of the first federal anti-bullying act. It tells of her physical and emotional journey, serving as instructive testimony for how a single individual—despite having to overcome many obstacles—can make a difference in this world. Grades 7 and up. Closed captioned. Spanish subtitles. Color. 78 minutes. Women Rising. ©2015.
