Today Is Dedicated To The Fearless Girl The Taliban Could Not Kill

1. This is Malala Yousafzai. Last year, the Taliban shot her on her school bus in Pakistan because she was campaigning for universal education and girls’ rights.

2. She was flown to the U.K. for surgery to repair the damage the bullet caused to her brain. She is now back at school and continues to be an activist for every child’s right to education.
