Drawing by Linda El Halabi.

This is a portrait of Malala Yousafzai, the young Pakistani activist who defied the Taliban in her region by advocating the right for girls to go to school. In October 2012, she almost died after the Taliban shot her while she was returning home on a school bus. They were threatened by a girl who liked to read. Malala’s strength and courage is testament to the power of education in changing women’s lives. It all started with a book.
