I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban
*Winner of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize*
When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley, one girl fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday, 9 October 2012, she almost paid the ultimate price when she was shot in the head at point-blank range.
Malala Yousafzai's extraordinary journey has taken her from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations. She has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and is the youngest ever winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.
I Am Malala will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.
'Malala is an inspiration to girls and women all over the world' JK Rowling
