Eighteen-year-old activist and Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzi has yet another chapter to add to her already action-inspiring story.
At 15, Malala was attacked by the Taliban on her way home from school for her public advocacy of education for females. She survived the attack, and uses her incredible story and perspective to bring light to the lack of basic human rights for women and girls – such as education – around the world. At 17, she became the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize ever for these efforts.
The latest installment of her story is He Named Me Malala, a film that aims to empower girls and inform conversations about gender and education equality everywhere. The film opens today in selected theaters, but you can organize or attend a #DayoftheGirl screening on October 9!
