Malala Yousafzai never stopped advocating for girls' right to education, despite the attempt on her life.
In this conversation between Emirati moderator Alia Al Mansoori and Malala, now a fresh graduate from Oxford in politics, philosophy, and economics, they delve into the 23-year-old's life and her decade-long fight for the eradication of systematic exclusion of children and girls from education.
Malala is an example that all it takes is courage to muster a voice — a revolutionary voice.
The Emirates Literature Foundation has just released its full recording of the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature 2021 session with Malala, as the activist opens up to festival attendees about her future plans and views.
The session is available on the Foundation’s YouTube channel for FREE with Arabic subtitles.

The recording is the third in the digital series of recorded sessions to be released on the Emirates Literature Foundation YouTube channel.
