On October 9th, 14-year-old Malala Yousufzai was shot by Taliban gunmen, and after a bullet was removed from her brain, her condition is slowly improving.
The Taliban targeted Malala for her human rights activism. Malala has bravely spoken out for the rights of girls to receive an education. Her father ran one of the last girls’ schools to defy a Taliban ban against female education in Pakistan’s Swat Valley, and both Malala and her family have received threats from the Taliban in the past.
Send a message of support to Malala, Shazia and Kainat (two other girls who were injured while standing up for the right to education), as they recover from the attacks.
