Athenian Dialogue: I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban

Tuesday, May 18, 2021

I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai Facilitator: Jane Long, Ed.D. When the Taliban took control of northern Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. At age 15, she almost paid the ultimate price for that education. Shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, she was not expected to survive. Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from the Swat Valley in Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. (320 pages) Capacity: Registration is limited to 30 participants. The minimum enrollment is 10.
