Here’s more information about this event::
The youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, Malala Yousafzai was only 15 years old and already a renowned advocate for human rights when she was shot in the head by a member of the Taliban while riding the bus home from school. As an outspoken advocate for girls’ access to education, Malala was a threat to the Taliban’s dogmatic rule and they wanted her dead. But she didn’t die. Against all odds, she survived. And when she was healed she refused to be silenced, becoming an even more outspoken activist than ever before and a shining symbol of protest that caught the world’s attention. Now, this inspiring young woman and best-selling author of I Am Malala comes to Alaska Airlines Arena in Hec Edmundson Pavilion at Seattle’s University of Washington to speak about her ongoing efforts.
