Lift Her Up Campaign Combines Holograms And Girls' Rights For International Women's Day

She isn't real but that doesn't mean your words don't have impact.

The one-day "Lift Her Up" installation involves 3D technology and voice recognition software that allows men, women, boys and girls to send either messages of empowerment or words of discouragement to a holographic image of a girl.

What people say will control whether the girl stands tall or falls to the ground.

The powerful campaign put together by Plan International Canada aims to build a dialogue around the very real impact that words have on the power and potential of girls around the world.
