Malala makes it to ‘BBC 100 Women of the year’ for second time


The youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai has made her name into ‘BBC 100 Women 2021′, her second time in the elite list of women from across the world.

The outlet shared the list of 100 influential women from across the world. Three Pakistanis including Malala were named in the list of 2021.

“The youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani girls’ education activist and UN messenger of peace. She has spoken up for the right of young women to education since she was 11,” the outlet wrote about the female activist.

“Her activism began with blogs for the BBC about living under Taliban rule in Pakistan and the ban on girls attending school. In October 2012, a gunman boarded her bus, looking for her, and shot her in the head.” The publication then shared, “Following her recovery, she has continued her work as co-founder of the non-profit Malala Fund, aiming to build a world where every girl can learn and lead without fear,” the praiseful statement added.

It must be noted here that Malala has been vocal about girls’ education in upper parts of Pakistan. She recently tied the knot to Asser Malik.
