He Named Me Malala premiere

My son got a sick day or two this week. I think it’s probably schoolitis but he had a very low grade fever and was told he can’t come back to school. So we settled in to watch this amazing documentary called He Named Me Malala. It was crushing and inspiring all at the same time. She’s such an amazing soul who is currently unable to return to her homeland. Think about that for a minute. She’s been in the running for a Nobel Peace Prize for 2 years. She won it finally too. No one deserves it more than her for what she has tried to do for girls in her homeland. She’s an activist for girls getting an education. She’s such a hero. The men who attacked her are cowards. But she came out a survivor and stronger than even she knew. Make sure you check the movie out.

It’s the Global Broadcast of He Named Me Malala.

HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.

Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman) shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life – from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the UN, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers.

  2. I have been a pretty big fan of Malala ever since I have heard her story. I have yet to read the book, but would love to very soon and incorporate it in my kid’s famous persons studies.

    Thank you so much for this opportunity!
