Malala Yousafzai: The Face Of Resistance To The Taliban

Published 11 October 2012

Malala Yousafzai, a 14-year-old from Pakistan’s Swat district, was known for her blog denouncing Taliban atrocities and advocating for girls’ education. On October 9, a gunman opened fire on her school minibus as Yousafzai and classmates rode home from school, seriously wounding her. As Yousafzai recovers in a hospital, activists, religious leaders, students, and teachers across Pakistan are rallying to support her and condemn the attack.
