“Let us pick up our books and our pens, they are the most powerful weapons” (Malala Yousafzai)
12th July, every year is commemorated as Malala Day to honour women and children’s rights around the world. July 12 is the birthday of Malala Yousafzai, a young Pakistani woman who was shot in the head on October 9, 2012, by Taliban gunmen after she publically advocated for the education of girls.
