  1. Malala Yousafzai Fights for Female Rights to Education

    Malala’s advocacy work on behalf of girls’ education earned her a number of accolades and prizes, as well as a vicious attack from the Taliban that left her and her friends fighting for their lives in hospital. Since her release, Malala has been indefatigable in her activism, and if she is the face of Pakistan’s future, the future is bright indeed. Perhaps a sign of her stature isn’t that she was denied the Nobel Peace Prize this year, but that she was considered a front-runner at only 16.
