Few have been able to stand up to the Taliban and live to talk about it. Fewer still when by way of a survived murder attempt. And to recall the horrible ordeal without bitterness and anger.
Malala wants, for her 19th birthday, today, for us to all say #YesAllGirls.
Disadvantaged girls in poor countries are disparately under educated; 80% of girls in disadvantaged status do not complete lower secondary school. If they receive primary education, at best, that is the most they will come to learn. Since Malala was able to turn her survival into a global platform, education for girls is now a global agenda.
