I Am Malala

This week, ABC News is featuring portions of interviews with Malala Yousafzai, who -- a year ago this week --  was shot at point blank range by the Taliban in Pakistan. Her crime?  Speaking out about the right of girls to receive an education.  There are multiple videos on the ABC News site.  If you begin here, you can continue to watch this amazing young woman on the videos as your time allows. If you have more time, click here to watch the YouTube video of her July 2013 speech to the United Nations (on her 16th birthday).

Additionally, her book, I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban, is being released on Tuesday, October 8.
