Description

This is a letter of sisterhood to Malala Yousafzai, expressing the belief that every girl has the right to go to school. The beautiful photos from non-profit Plan International bring together their Because I am a Girl message with Malala Yousafzai’s mission. After being shot by the Taliban for the simple act of going to school in her native Pakistan, Malala has become an international girls’ rights crusader and the youngest person ever to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Written as a letter from girls around the world to Malala, whom they recognize as a leader, a champion, and a friend.
