At the age of 11, Malala Yousafzai began writing a blog in support of education for girls in Pakistan. As the blog gained popularity and Yousafzai became famous, she faced opposition from religious extremists who were against women’s right to education. Readers will discover how Yousafzai stood her ground against terrorist activists, even after being shot for her beliefs. They will also learn how Yousafzai achieved international recognition and how she continues to support the rights of women in her home country.
