I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Changed the World
A true-life heroine, battling evil with words and smarts. Proof of the power one teenager can have in fighting for what’s right. Malala was ten when the Taliban took control of her Pakistani region.

So she blogged and spoke about girls’ rights to education. Then, at just fifteen, she was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in a revenge attack that shocked the world. No one expected her to survive. But she did. And she’s making a better world for women right now. See what she’s done. Then follow her lead.
