Activist and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
Malala Yousafzai, or just “Malala” as she is endearingly known to the world, has shown her bravery once again. The youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner in the world, renowned human rights activist and survivor of an attempted murder attack for her activism took a public stand against the Taliban for a second time. She penned a letter to Taliban leadership that they are failing, as they promised “to respect the rights of girls and women” and instead are “denying millions their right to learn.” Malala and other notable female activists demanded that the ban on girls’ education be reversed immediately. For her continued courage, Malala is celebrated for her unprecedented contributions toward women’s rights.
