On Monday, as people commemorated International Women’s Day, youngest Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai, called for a change to educate women and girls.
“Women, learn about your rights, know what’s right and what’s not. Acquire education and make the change you want to see,” she urged the audience during her closing remarks at a session titled ‘Keeping Girls in the Picture’, which was organised as part of the British Council’s Women of the World Festival.
Earlier, Malala had stressed the need to continue the struggle for women’s rights, despite them having been given the right to education and vote.
