“One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world,” said Malala Yousafzai.
Learn more about the incredible life of a teenage girl who risked her life to fight for education and women’s rights around the world in the newly released film, “He Named Me Malala.”
This film is an inspirational portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home from school. The then 15-year-old was singled out for advocating girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world.
