This Week’s Woman of the Week is:
Malala Yousafzai

Malala was born in Pakistan on July 12, 1997. She is a human rights activist who is well known for standing up for the education of women in her country where at times the Taliban banned girls from attending school.

At the young age of 11-12 she wrote a blog anonymously for the BBC detailing her life during the Taliban occupation of Swat. She rose in prominence and gave interviews in print media and on television. She was nominated for the International Children Peace Prize by Desmond Tutu and was also the youngest recipient of the Nobel Prize.

On October 9, 2012 Malala was wounded in a murder attempt by the Taliban. She was left unconscious and in a critical condition at the Rawalpindi Institite of Cardiology. Her condition improved enough for her to be sent to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, UK. The murder attempt brought her an outpouring of international support. Malala is presently a prominent education activist. In April 2017 she was awarded honorary canadian citizenship and became the youngest person to address House of Commons of Canada.

This week we salute this brave young woman who has become an inspiration to women in all walks of life.
