On Oct. 9, 2012, Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by the Taliban for speaking out about the right of girls to go to school. Few expected her to survive, but her miraculous recovery led to an extraordinary movement to empower and educate young girls.
Marking her sixteenth birthday with a live address at the UN headquarters broadcast around the world, Malala is an icon of courage and hope. Her new book, I Am Malala, tells the remarkable tale of a young girl who refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education.
