As you may have seen in the past few days, we posted a video of Selena Gomez, Orlando Bloom, Jennifer Hudson, Seth Rogen, J. Cole, Hannah Simone, Clive Owen, Edward Norton, Shay Mitchell, Joe Jonas, Martin Sheen, Reggie Watts, Big Sean, and Evanna Lynch are telling the story about a young girl named Malala Yousafzai.
Malala Yousafzai is a 15 year old girl who is from the Swat Valley in Pakistan. She believes that education is a universal human right. She believes that one child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world. When schools were attacked in the Swat district, she still went and spoke out. She realized the importance of our voices only when we are silent.
On Tuesday, October 9th 2012 she was shot during lunch time. They shot her three times. One bullet hit the left side of her forehead, traveled under her skin the length of her face and then into her shoulder, in an attempt to silence her and end her campaign for girls’ rights to go to school.
In the days immediately following the attack, she remained unconscious and in critical condition, but later her condition improved enough for her to be sent to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England, for intensive rehabilitation.
Her shooting, and her refusal to stand down from what she believed was right, brought to light the plight of millions of children around the world who are denied an education today. The assassination attempt sparked a national and international outpouring of support for Yousafzai.
However, one bullet, one gunshot heard around the world did not stop her to fight for those rights. Malala up to this day continues to fight for the rights of girls’ education.
On April 17, join Craig Kielburger, Malala Yousafzai and Shiza Shahid as they go silent for 24 hours for the millions of girls around the world facing poverty, exploitation and the denial of their right to education.
Take your own vow of silence for an issue you care about and let your silence roar by spreading the word on social media using the hashtag #WeAreSilent.
You should join them too, like we are here at SMG-News.
Why should you go silent?
Around the world, there are those whose voices are not heard. They are the girls who are denied an education because of gender inequality, school fees or the need to stay home and care for younger siblings. They are the child labourers or the children growing up in poverty. They are the students who are bullied at your school.
Every one of them has a voice that needs to be heard. Take a silent stand so they can speak out.

Selena Gomez’s “Come & Get It” is now a 3.00X multi platinum single!
A beauty in Beverly Hills!
Wearing a gorgeous black dress and a pair of high heels, Selena Gomez proved to be just that while attending The Alliance for Children’s Rights 22nd annual dinner at the Beverly Hilton on Monday night.
But the 21-year-old singer-actress didn’t show up alone, as she was joined by both her mom, Mandy, and her stepfather, Brian.
"The family are longtime supporters of the Alliance for close to five years now," an inside source exclusively told E! News, revealing that Mandy and Brian’s production company, July Moon Productions, actually sponsored the dinner.
Our contact also added that “Mandy was adopted and was also a teen mom, so she relates to our work,” and noted that “Mandy will sometimes speak at the events. She talks about raising Selena, about rising above your situation to achieve the most out of life. She’s really empowering.”
Of course, Selena is certainly no stranger to lending her fame to a worthy cause.
Just last month, the gal took the stage at the We Day California conference, where she delivered a poignant, heartfelt speech and opened up about her own personal struggles in order to inspire her young, eager audience.
"All I really want you to know is that you are changing the world," she said, in part, at the time. "I’m not changing the world, you’re changing the world, and that’s amazing…Please stay true to yourself."

HOLLYWOOD—(BUSINESS WIRE)— Paramount Home Media Distribution and Samuel Goldwyn Films announced today a collaboration to bring RUDDERLESS to theatrical and home viewing audiences. The feature directorial debut of Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee* William H. Macy, RUDDERLESS was produced by Keith Kjarval (Unified Pictures) and Brad Greiner in association with Aaron L. Gilbert’s Bron Studios and had its world premiere as the Closing Night Film at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The film stars Billy Crudup (Almost Famous), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Into Darkness), Felicity Huffman (“Desperate Housewives”), Jamie Chung (“Believe”), Selena Gomez (Spring Breakers) and Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix).
Samuel Goldwyn Films will handle U.S. theatrical distribution day-and-date with Paramount Home Media Distribution’s VOD release. Paramount will also handle other U.S. ancillary platforms and all distribution in Canada, the UK, Russia and certain territories in Asia.
After a man has his life torn apart when he loses his son, he is content wasting the rest of his days until he discovers a box of unpublished music. Coming from such an unexpected source, the music is a revelation. He begins obsessively learning the songs, until one day he decides to play one of them at a local bar. The song captivates a young musician in the audience and the two unlikely friends decide to form a local band that gains sudden popularity and changes both of their lives.
"After seeing such a fabulous response at Sundance, we are thrilled to be partnering with two of the most prestigious distributors in our business on my directing debut," said director William H. Macy. "When I first moved to LA, many years ago, I lived just off of Melrose, and I passed those beautiful gates to Paramount almost every day. Seeing them become our partner on RUDDERLESS and adding the storied Goldwyn Company into the mix excites me to no end."
"William H. Macy has always been a true talent in front of the cameras and now also proves to be a major force behind the scenes. Billy Crudup, Felicity Huffman and the rest of the cast deliver stellar performances. We are excited to again partner with Paramount Home Media Distribution in bringing Macy’s remarkable first feature to theaters," said Peter Goldwyn, Senior Vice President, Samuel Goldwyn Films.

We feel confident that it will be embraced by audiences both in the U.S. and internationally."

EXCLUSIVE: Just because spring has sprung doesn’t mean there isn’t still action coming out of January’s Sundance Film Festival.

Scripted by Casey Twenter and Jeff Robison, the film revolves around a grieving father in a downward spiral who stumbles across a box of his recently deceased son’s demo tapes and lyrics. Shocked by the discovery of this unknown talent, he forms a band in the hope of finding peace in the wake of his loss. Keith Kjarval of Unified Pictures and Brad Greiner are producing.
