WOMEN OF THE WORLD: Malala Yousafzai

“We realise the importance of our voice when we are silenced”
At the age of 17, Malala has accomplished more than a thousand of us will probably accomplish in our lifetime. When the Taliban took control of her hometown in the Swat Valley, she started writing anonymously for the BBC expressing her views and life under the threat of the Taliban taking over her valley.
On Tuesday 9 October 2012, Malala almost paid the ultimate price. Shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school she was not expected to survive. Instead, Malala’s miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At age sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.
