Malala Yousafzai, a 14 year old girl, was on her way home from school in Mingora, Pakistan, in the Swat Valley on October 10, 2012 when a Taliban gunman walked up to the school bus, asked for her by name and shot her in the head and neck. 
Malala was no ordinary target. She came to public attention three years ago when she wrote a diary for the BBC about life under the Taliban, which controlled Swat from 2007 to 2009 before being dislodged by an Army offensive. Last year, she won a national peace prize.
The Pakistani Taliban was quick and eager to take credit for the attack. The act horrified the world public and  was quickly condemned it as cowardly primordial.
Malala has surviced the attack and her voice now even much stronger and symbol of women and girls empowerment and the future women want.what you can do to help girls like her around the world—girls who want to carve out their own future, not live a life of submission.
