272. Malala Yousafzai (Women’s Right Activist, Pakistan)

Malala Yousafzai is a student from the town of Mingora in Swat District, Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa, Pakistan, known for her women’s rights activism in the Swat Valley, where the Taliban regime has banned girls from attending school. In 2009, at the age of 11, Yousafzai came to prominence through a blog she wrote for the BBC, detailing her life under the Tehrik-i-Taliban regime and their attempts to take control of the valley, a confrontation which would later require the Pakistani military to intervene. Yousafzai has since been nominated for several awards, and has won Pakistan’s first National Peace Prize.
