Malala Activist for Girls' Education

Written by Raphaëlle Frier | Illustrated by Aurélia Fronty | Translated by Julie Cormier

Malala's voice is loud and strong and is for all girls around the world.

Malala Yousafzai stood up to the Taliban and fought for the right for all girls to receive an education. When she was just fifteen-years-old, the Taliban attempted to kill Malala, but even this did not stop her activism. At age eighteen Malala became the youngest person to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her work to ensure the education of all children around the world.
