Malala’s message to an Afghan schoolgirl

Here, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai, who in 2012 was shot in the head by the Taliban in Pakistan for speaking up for the rights of girls to be educated, hears from 17 year-old Rohila, who has been unable to go to school for four months since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan in August. We have changed Rohila's name for her safety.

“I Found A Best Friend And Companion”: Malala’s Wedding In Her Own Words

“I do not want to get married... or at least not until I’m 35.” I heard myself blurt out those words – reactionary, half-consciously – many times over the last few years when asked about relationships.
