Malala wins Nobel Peace Prize

Two years ago almost exactly, on October 9, 2012, sixteen -year-old Malala Jousarfzai was shot in the head by the Taliban. Her crime? Advocating education for girls. Her book, I am Malala written with Christine Lamb is an international best seller. Since her recovery, Malala has continued to work for the education of girls. She now lives in Birmingham, England.

Malala shares the prize with Kailash Satyarthi, 60, the  leader of a global movement to end child slavery and exploitive child labour. He has rescued thousands of child slaves and survived several attempts on his life.
