Malala Yousafzai, in a 2011 interview with CNN, discussing her activism on behalf of girls seeking education in Pakistan.

YES YES YES!! I love this. FOREVER REBLOG!! 

YOU GO GIRL!

I’m going to point out again for those who don’t click links: This young woman was shot in the head and neck by the Taliban for speaking out on behalf of women’s rights in Pakistan. 

She is fifteen years old. She is also still alive. It is likely that she will suffer lifelong language and coordination difficulties given where she was shot (left side of her head) but she hasn’t given up her fight. 

While Islamic clerics in Pakistan have issued a Fatwa against the men who tried to murder her, the Taliban has re-iterated its intent to murder her and her father. 

I can’t express how much of a hero this woman is. She’s only fifteen, and yet she’s faced such impossible odds, and she’s still fighting. I just wish there was something I could do to help her.

There is presently a petition going around to try to get her nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize actually, but I’ve unfortunately lost the link to it.

    She didn’t win the prize but another group of people did for a job they hadn’t done yet. I was not happy about it.
