Nobel Prize

Malala Yousafzai shared the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 with Indian social reformer and campaigner against child labour Kailash Satyarthi. “Already at eleven years of age Malala Yousafzai fought for girls’ right to education. After having suffered an attack on her life by Taliban gunmen in 2012, she has continued her struggle and become a leading advocate of girls’ rights,” the Nobel Prize website states.
