Youngest Nobel laureate and Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai has never stopped advocating for girls’ right to education, despite the attempt on her life by the Taliban in 2012 in her home, Pakistan’s Swat Valley. Join the conversation with Malala, now a fresh graduate from Oxford in politics, philosophy, and economics, as she delves into her life and her never-ending endeavor for the eradication of systematic exclusion of children and girls from education. Malala is an example that all it takes is courage to muster a voice — a revolutionary voice. This session was recorded in front of a live audience at the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature 2021.
