When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in
Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be
silenced and fought for her right to an education.
On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she
almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at
point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and
few expected her 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
sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest
and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.
I AM MALALA is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by
global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, of a
father who, himself a school owner, championed and
encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of
brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a
society that prizes sons.
I AM MALALA will make you believe in the power of one
person's voice to inspire change in the world.
