The Emirates Literature Foundation has released the full recording of the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature 2021 session with Malala. The session is available on the Foundation’s YouTube channel for free with Arabic subtitles.
The world’s youngest Nobel laureate, Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai never stopped advocating for girls’ right to education, despite the attempt on her life by the Taliban in 2012 in her home, Pakistan’s Swat Valley. In this conversation between Emirati moderator Alia Al Mansoori and Malala, now a fresh graduate from Oxford in politics, philosophy, and economics, they delve into Malala’s life and her never-ending fight to eradicate the systematic exclusion of children and girls from education. Malala is an example that all it takes is the courage to muster a voice – a revolutionary voice.
