Malala Yousafzai

This. This, not some thirty year old woman at Georgetown University trying to change the Catholic faith. This fourteen-year-old girl in Pakistan shot by the Taliban. This girl who wrote about and fought atrocities. This girl for whom Pakistan created an award, the National Peace Award, and gave it to her last year. This girl who was nominated for the International Children's Peace Prize. This girl whose school bus was stopped by two men with pistols who came on board and asked which one of the girls was Malala Yousafzai and then shot her in the head. This is the front line of the "War on Women."
