The CW Hit Series will Feature The White House's Let Girls Learn Initiative in the Episode Airing Monday, November 16, as Lead Actress Gina Rodriguez Stars in Digital PSA to Promote Education for Girls Worldwide

Burbank, CA (November 13, 2015) - The CW Network and CBS Television Studios are proud to announce that it has joined forces this November 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. Let Girls Learn focuses on helping the more than 62 million adolescent girls around the world who are denied access to education, to go to school and stay in school. Let Girls Learn will be featured in the episode of The CW's critically acclaimed sophomore hit JANE THE VIRGIN, which airsMonday, November 16(9:00-10:00pm ET/PT). Additionally, JANE THE VIRGIN's award-winning lead actress, Gina Rodriguez, stars in a supporting PSA titled "62 Million Girls" that will run across The CW's digital and social platforms at cwtvpr.com: JANE THE VIRGIN Let Girls Learn PSA.

"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. "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," said First Lady Michelle Obama.

In her "62 Million Girls" PSA (produced by The CW), Rodriguez encourages audiences to speak out for the 62 million girls worldwide who are being denied an education by joining the #62MillionGirls conversation online. This includes visiting the Girl Rising's 62 Million Girls website in support of Let Girls Learn (http://www.62MillionGirls.com) and asking viewers to share more about their personal education experiences. The Girl Rising campaign currently serves as a supporting arm to Let Girls Learn by harnessing the power of storytelling, including a feature film, to inspire action that gets girls into the classroom worldwide.

Through the grassroots development work that Peace Corps volunteers do each and every day, they are already positioned to work with communities to confront barriers to girls' education. Since the launch of Let Girls Learn, Peace Corps Volunteers around the world have responded to the call to make a difference in their communities of service, and nearly 700 Volunteers have received additional training to become catalysts of change for girls' education. In the coming years, the Peace Corps will train thousands of volunteers and tens of thousands of community leaders to advance girls' education and empowerment and will continue working hand in hand with local leaders to implement community-based solutions.

"We couldn't be more proud to join the White House in launching this powerful initiative," Peace Corps Director Carrie Hessler-Radelet said. "Educating girls is essential to healthy and thriving communities and Let Girls Learn will help turn the tide for girls around the world."
