Malala Yousafzai has accomplished more for women’s rights in a mere decade than I could hope to contribute in 3 lifetimes. She is only human, but the depth of her humanity proves immeasurable by any metrics known to me.
This month the inspirational documentary of how Malala Yousafzai’s homeland (the Swat Valley of Pakistan) was taken over by Taliban extremists, how her family endured under the de facto rule of terrorists, and how Malala became a beacon for female education and empowerment, is being released in select US theaters. As of now, the film will only screen during the month of October.
