Nobel Peace Prize for their activism on behalf of children.
My book group read Yousafzai's memoir I Am Malala last month and every one of us found it moving. As a teenager, Yousafzai started speaking up about girls and their right to receive education in Pakistan. When she was 16, she was shot in the head as a direct result of her activism. She survived and has continued to campaign for educational rights.
I Am Malala is an inspirational memoir that offers a window into the lives of real girls and women in Pakistan.
