Around the world, women grow up knowing they are considered inferior to men. Ziauddin Yousafzai was determined to give his daughter Malala a very different upbringing. Instead of accepting the patriarchal attitudes of many in his country, the Pakistani educator was determined to give his daughter a strong sense of her intelligence and power.
He enrolled her in his school. The Taliban nearly ended his hopes for Malala when they shot her on a bus in 2012. Malala survived. So did her and her father’s dreams.
If you have ever wondered how the young Nobel Peace Prize winner became the inspiring young woman she is today, watch her father talking about his belief in equality for men and women. It is an inspiring 16:36 video.
